Sandy Koufax beats the Mets. Lou Johnson hits a homer for LA and Eddie Bressoud hits one for the Mets off of Koufax. I remember Sandy after the game on Kiners Korner.

My dad and I went to this game and I was so excited to see Sandy Koufax pitch. Being a Met fan I had mixed emotions, wanting to see a no-hitter and the Mets beating Koo.

Got neither. Lou Johnson hits a three-run homer of Bob Shaw in the first, Ron Hunt leads off bottom half with a single to left and scores when Ron Swoboda just beats the throw at first on a two-out infield single.

Also remember the fan sitting next to us complaining about Bob Murphy, Ralph Kiner and Lindsey Nelson advising people to buy their tickets early when the upper deck was only half filled.

Reading the book 'Koufax' right now, on loan from a friend... remembering when Dad brought me to see this game, just 13 years old, and not knowing it would be Koufax' last year. I do remember Dad chiding Swoboda's infield single, which was a dribbler near the plate mostly based on Ron's inability to hit Koufax, as if that singled him out! Thanks, Dad, and thanks, Sandy, for great Shea memories.

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.
