Had a great time this afternoon.. Omega was handing out "Official Timekeeper" hats by the countdown clock in Vancouver. Then around 6pm Thomas Stafford, Eugene Cernan and Buzz Aldrin all dropped by the Omega store in the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver to take pictures, and were then pictured in the bobsled by the Olympic clock.
Eugene was nice enough to chat with us, shook my hand and took a picture with me. Great guy, he was commenting on how beautiful the women are in Vancouver. Eugene is known for orbiting the moon on Apollo 10 and walking on the moon with Apollo 17. He is one of only 12 people to ever walk on the moon, the only human who has ever descended onto the moon twice, and the last human to have been on the moon. Pretty freaking cool. (pictured with me here)
Also pictured is Buzz Aldrin, in his Omega jacket. He was wearing two watches today (I will try to see if I can find any closeups). I asked to shake his hand however his security wouldn't allow anyone closer than a couple of feet.
