When big news breaks, such as the death of first man to walk on the moon Neil Armstrong at the age of 82, all the news organizations are scrambling to get the news reported, and then put together a Life in Pictures gallery or edit a video montage.

NBC News got a little ahead of themselves when news of Armstrong's death hit the internet, posting a story with the headline, "Astronaut Neil Young, first man to walk on moon, dies at age 82."

Oops.

Paging Jimmy Fallon -- if "astronaut Neil Young" doesn't make an appearance on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" Monday night, you have really dropped the ball, fella.
