Editor’s Corner: Yogi

On Tuesday, former New York Yankees catcher Yogi Berra died at the age of 90. I used to write a daily memo and enjoyed including his quotes for a bit of lightness and fun. In honor of Yogi, here is a selection of his Yogi-isms. For the full article, see the Detroit Free Press article. (Thanks to Robert T. for the link!)

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

2. No one goes there nowadays, it’s too crowded.

3. Baseball is ninety percent mental and the other half is physical.

4. Always go to other people’s funerals, otherwise they won’t come to yours.

5. Congratulations. I knew the record would stand until it was broken.

6. You better cut the pizza in four pieces because I’m not hungry enough to eat six.

7. You wouldn’t have won if we’d beaten you.

8. I usually take a two-hour nap from one to four.

9. Never answer an anonymous letter.

10. The future ain’t what it used to be.

11. It gets late early out here.

12. If the people don’t want to come out to the ballpark, nobody’s going to stop them.

13. Pair up in threes.

14. Even Napoleon had his Watergate.

15. He hits from both sides of the plate. He’s amphibious.

16. I don’t know (if they were men or women fans running naked across the field). They had bags over their heads.

17. I’m not going to buy my kids an encyclopedia. Let them walk to school like I did.

18. So I’m ugly. I never saw anyone hit with his face.

19. The towels were so thick there I could hardly close my suitcase.

20. Little League baseball is a very good thing because it keeps the parents off the streets.
