I always wondered why he was never more of a public figure.. He could have been an inspiration to millions of people (more so than he already is)

It took someone with a dream to see it, and another to live it. JFk and Neil Armstrong achieved that. Men ahead of their time.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

If I recall correctly, from an episode of Pawn Stars, it was his choice. He became a bit of a recluse after the event and that was why his signature was quite valuable.

Edit: just googled it, he was more than a bit of a recluse.

I remember watching him land on the moon live on tv.

And yes, he did shy away from the limelight.

Only 82 huh? not exactly old by today's standards. Phyllis Diller made it to 95.

Too bad many (if not all) of our politicians would not be qualified to wipe JFK's and Neils's a$$es if they were still with us.

Also too bad that many of today's problem can't be tackled like how America tackled JFK's promise to go to the moon. We are ruled by a bunch of hacks and pinheads.

A couple of decades back, I was watching a little half hour general aviation show one Sunday morning. The host had Neil as a kind of co-host for one segment where they visited a small flying club in some backwater airport. The owner of the flying club was an older middle-aged lady and when Neil introduced himself they shook hands and exchanged pleasantries, but she didn't recognize him as the Neil Armstrong. She then offers to give him a flying lesson. Neil smiles and accepts.

In the air, she's a real Bossy Betty. Do this, don't do that, you're doing that wrong. He takes it all in good humour.

After they land, she admits to the host of the program that Neil is pretty good but needs to improve on his trim control and something else I forget. Neil, the man who was able to take a giant aluminum beachball balanced on a blowtorch and land it it on the moon, replies "I'll try to work on that, m'am"

A good life, lived well. Bravo, sir. Bravo.
