METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 17, 2001 GAME:

Ed K
October 4, 2006
First game back after 9-11 and the Mets won it in the 9th inning to keep their faint playoff hopes alive. Gary Cohen has said it was the toughest game he ever had to announce.

The original schedule had the Mets playing in Pittsburgh on 9-11 week and then hosting the Pirates at Shea the following week and I had company tickets to one of the Shea games. Because Shea was being used for rescue efforts, the two series were flipped on the schedule. The games in Pittsburgh were played during this week when they were supposed to be played at Shea, and the games at Shea were played during make- up week at the end of the season when all the other games postponed from 9-11 week were held.

One other note: this was the first Met game played in PNC park.

Example One
The Mets suck! They need to trade Smith and get somebody like Jones.
This comment is off-topic and will be removed. It has nothing to do with any specific game. But here's an acceptable alternative:

Example Two
The Mets suck! Smith made three errors in this game, and hit into a double play, and the Mets blew a 5-0 lead. They need to get rid of Smith and get somebody like Jones.
See the difference? Here you're getting the same point across, but it's in the proper context. We wouldn't consider this message to be off-topic, and we would let it remain.

We do appreciate anybody who takes the time to share their thoughts on our site, and we hate to remove anybody's postings. But if we didn't take steps to ensure that only on-topic messages were retained, The Ultimate Mets Database would become a confusing jumble of unrelated comments, and would thus be less enjoyable to visitors like you.

Thank you!
