Just Who is Mr. Gorsky?

On July 20, 1969 As commander of the Opollo 11 Lunar Module Neil Armstrong was the first man to step foot on the moon.
His first words after stepping on the moon, "That's one small step for man. One giant leap for mankind."
This was televised to Earth and heard by millions.
But just as he re-entered the lander he made an enigmatic remark- " Good luck Mr. Gorsky".

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

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

On July 5, 1995 in Tampa Bay, Florida while answering questions following a speech a reporter brought up the 26 year old question about Mr. Gorsky to Armstrong.
This time he he finally responded because Mr. Gorsky had died so Neil Armstrong felt he could now answer the question about Mr. Gorsky?

Here is the answer to "Who was Mr. Gorsky"?

In 1938 when he was a small kid in a mid-western town, he was playing Baseball with a friend in the back yard.
His friend hit the ball which landed in the neighbor's yard by the bedroom window, 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."

We were told Neil Armstrong's family confirmed this as a true story.
