A Tribute to Yogi Berra

For those who don’t know, Yogi was an American professional baseball catcher, manager, and coach who played 19 seasons in Major League Baseball. He was an 18-time All-Star and appeared in the World Series championship 14 times, only losing four times. He also became known for his crazy, confusing, pithy and paradoxical sayings.
 In honor of Yogi, here are a few Yogi-isms:

 “I never said most of the things I said.”

 “When you come to a fork in the road, take it.”

 “It ain’t over till it’s over.”

 “It’s like déjà vu all over again.”

 “Baseball is ninety percent mental and the other half is physical.”

 “The future ain’t what it used to be.”

 “I tell the kids, somebody’s gotta win, somebody’s gotta lose. Just don’t fight about it. Just try to get better.”

 “You’ve got to be very careful if you don’t know where you are going, because you might not get there.”

 “It was impossible to get a conversation going, everybody was talking too much.”

 Here’s to a life well lived and a man well loved.
 (We love baseball and have a goal to see a game played in every stadium. We are about two thirds of the way there. We even made a special trip to NYC to see a game at Yankee Stadium and a game at Shea Stadium before they were torn down.)
