METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 6, 2008 GAME:Jose
July 7, 2008
Wow! What a crucial game. I didn't get to watch the whole game cause I left it in the bottom of the first when Ollie made Ryan Howard or Pat Burrell (I don't remember) pop up to end the bottom of the first. I was on my way to take the subway to go downtown to shop and hang out all day, but as soon as I came home I turned on the T.V. to check if the Mets won and by surprise the Mets were in the middle of a 3-hour rain delay and leading by one freaking run thanks to Carlos Beltran's solo shot.
I was kind of pissed off that the Mets were up by a run when they should have been winning by a couple more, but then Beltran in the top 9th with the clutch again driving in Jose Reyes from 3rd for the insurance run, I was saying "OK, now it's in the bag." Until Wagner blew it in the bottom of the ninth with one strike away to end it, I couldn't believe it.
The Mets bullpen was strong throughout extra innings and then the BIG HIT by Fernando Tatis with one on in the 12th, I jumped out of my chair with joy and almost hit my arms with the ceiling fan because of my height but I didn't freaking care cause the Mets took the lead and the Phillies sucked and Joe Smith nailed it down in the bottom of the 12th. GO METS! GREAT GAME!
