50 years ago, Neil Armstrong took a walk on the moon.  America was never more united on this day, even in the midst of incredible turmoil, people marching in the streets against the Vietnam War, and protesting the policies of Richard M. Nixon.  However, on that day, the people of San Francisco welcomed the President.  […]

The only thing sad about this post is that it’s not about one of the major DC area teams, but instead a minor league affiliate of the Orioles. In honor of the 50th anniversary of the 1969 Apollo 11 moon landing, the Bowie Baysox (yes, okay, that is a pretty terrible name) are wearing moon […]

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — Celebrations are in full swing across the country for the 50th anniversary of humanity’s first footsteps on another world. Apollo 11’s Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on the moon on July 20, 1969. Armstrong was the first one out, proclaiming: “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” At NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida, cars were backed up for miles Saturday morning outside the visitor complex. In Armstrong’s hometown of Wapakoneta, Ohio, runners competed in “Run to the Moon” races. The White House reiterated its goal to send astronauts back to the moon and “take the next giant leap — sending Americans to Mars.” Vice President Mike Pence headed to Kennedy to tour the Apollo 11 launchpad and give a speech.
