Kathy Pinna U was at a San Francisco Giants game with my boyfriend when they announced that "the Eagle has landed" (on the moon). The whole stadium (it was packed) stood up and started clapping. Later, we watched the actual moon walk on tv. Quite a day. You couldn't help thinking about President Kennedy that day and how you wished that he could have lived to see it.
