METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 14, 2006 GAME:John Telesca

I was at the game at Wrigley Field with my family, and there were loads of Mets fans there. Had a Let's go Mets chant going during the 7th inning stretch.
Cliff Floyd made an excellent jumping back hand catch to keep it close - he's turned into such a fine fielder. Perhaps typical Chicago weather - started cool with a breeze from right, quite foggy, then right after the 5th inning a downpour stopped the game for 45 min. After the ground crew cleaned the field up, and the puddles, the breeze was gone and it got hot.
Maddox was ineffective and the Mets built their lead and held it without much trouble. This is a great year to be a Mets fan...finally!

First Mets road game I have attended. Nice to see them win on the road. They had the key inning with a key error by the Cubs and Trachsel was solid in the first game after the All-Star break.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
