R.I.P Yogi Berra 

The legendary Yogi Berra has died, he was 90 years old. A Hall of Fame baseball catcher, he was also known for the many quotes attributed to him over the years. It is perhaps these quotes, these yogi-isms as they have become known, that he is best known for. In fact I truly believe he may have been one of the best humorists ever, though that is debatable.

Some of the best (in my opinion) are:

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

“A nickle ain’t worth a dime anymore.”

“I always thought that record would stand until it was broken.”

“You give 100 percent in the first half of the game, and if that isn’t enough in the second half you give what’s left.”

“Baseball is 90 percent mental, the other half is is physical.”

“It ain’t the heat, it’s the humility.” 

“I didn’t really say everything I said.”

Fair well, Yogi Berra, we’ll miss you and your  yogi-isms.
