What a sad day, Yogi Berra died today. What a bummer. Amazing catcher, even more, a kind and amazing man who stayed true to his roots. Yours truly will miss him and his zen comments that always had a bit of the Bronx in them as per this classic.
When you come to a fork in the road, TAKE IT!
Yogi Berra, one of baseball’s greatest catchers and characters, who as a player was a mainstay of 10 Yankee championship teams and as a manager led both the Yankees and Mets to the World Series — but who may be more widely known as an ungainly but lovable cultural figure, inspiring a cartoon character and issuing a seemingly limitless supply of unwittingly witty epigrams known as Yogi-isms — died on Tuesday. He was 90.
In 1949, early in Berra’s Yankee career, his manager assessed him this way in an interview in The Sporting News: “Mr. Berra,” Casey Stengel said, “is a very strange fellow of very remarkable abilities.”
It ain't over until it's over. :)
