When Apollo Mission Astronaut Neil Armstrong first walked on
the moon, he not only gave his famous "one  small step for
man, one giant leap for mankind" statement but followed it
by several remarks, usual com traffic between him, the other
astronauts and Mission Control. Just before he re-entered
the lander, however, he made the enigmatic remark "Good luck
Mr. Gorsky."

Many people at NASA thought it was a casual remark
concerning some rival Soviet Cosmonaut.  However, upon
checking, there was no Gorsky in either the Russian or
American space programs.

Over the years many people questioned Armstrong as to what
the "Good luck Mr.  Gorsky" statement meant, but Armstrong
always just smiled.

On July 5, 1995 in Tampa Bay FL, while answering questions
following a speech, a reporter brought up the 26 year old
question to Armstrong.  This time he finally responded.  Mr.

Gorsky had finally died and so Neil felt he could answer the

When he was a kid, he was playing baseball with a friend in
the backyard.  His friend hit a fly ball, which landed in
the front of his neighbor's bedroom windows.  His neighbors
were Mr. & Mrs. Gorsky. As he leaned down to pick up the
ball, young Armstrong heard Mrs.  Gorsky shouting at Mr.
Gorsky.  "Sex!  You want sex?!  You'll get sex when the kid
next door walks on the moon!"

True story.

Another anecdote related to the same theme:

In 1963, baseball pitcher Gaylord Perry remarked, "They'll put a 
man on the moon before I hit a home run."  On July 20, 1969, a 
few hours after Neil Armstrong set foot on the moon, 
Gaylord Perry hit his first, and only, home run.
