    RIP.

    Of course I have no personal connection to him, but this is one of those public figure deaths that feels like a punch to my stomach. Sad to hear.

    500 years from now, he will be the most referenced person that lived during our lifetimes.

    Rest in Peace, Neil Armstrong
    Hugs, smiling, and interactive Twitter accounts, don't mean winning baseball. Until this community understands that we are cursed to relive the madness.

    Wow. Just heard a story on NPR about his museum in Wapakoneta. They never mentioned that he was ill or had surgery. He was supposedly very private and eschewed the publicity from being the first man on the moon
    Wear gaudy colors, or avoid display. Lay a million eggs or give birth to one. The fittest shall survive, yet the unfit may live. Be like your ancestors or be different. We must repeat!

    You dont know how much guts it takes to be shipped to a rock that they are not 100% sure they can get you back.....

    RIP Mr. Armstrong and am sorry what has become of the space program.

    R.I.P Niel Armstrong, a true pioneer. This is a true story, I once got to go through his wallet.

    A true hero -- an American hero and a hero to all mankind.

    I wish I had been alive to see his moonwalk happen, because, at this rate, I'm guessing I'll never see anything even close to that amazing in my lifetime.

    Agreed. RIP to a true hero.

    Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS

    Nice piece from the NY Times' Bats blog about John Glenn's tribute to Armstrong while in Cleveland to throw out a first pitch honoring the 50th anniversary of his own flight in 1962. I didn't know Glenn and Ted Williams flew together in Korea.
