METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 13, 2003 GAME:Barry F.

Piazza's return after a long DL stint is highlighted by a HR and five-RBI night. The nice thing is that the Mets now are resembling a team with a complete offensive attack. They're stealing bases, hitting homers... It's interesting that the Mets are a much better team than when Piazza got hurt and now his role has changed. While statistically Piazza is a leader, he's like anyone else in reacting to what's going on around him. Finally, for the first time in a few years, there's something positive going on. I think the Mets will give a lot of people trouble down the stretch and could spoil someone's playoff chances at some point.

The Mets were supposed to play the next night on Thursday when the big power outage happened at around 4pm ET. The game was called off even though the weather was perfect and wasn't played at all even though the Giants were 9 games ahead in the NL West at the time (They won by 15 plus games so there was NO reason to make it up). I remember WFAN radio broadcasting the Yankee game (they were in Baltimore) so WCBS radio could give wall to wall coverage of the power outage that night.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
