Gentleman Yogi Berra – The Wisdom of Yogi – Priceless

Gentleman Yogi Berra – The Wisdom of Yogi – Priceless –

Yogi was well known for his pithy comments and witticisms, known as Yogiisms. Yogiisms very often take the form of either an apparently obvious tautology or a paradoxical contradiction.

Examples:

As a general comment on baseball: “90% of the game is half-mental.”

On why he no longer went to Ruggeri’s, a St. Louis restaurant: “Nobody goes there anymore. It’s too crowded.”

“It ain’t over till it’s over.” In July 1973, Berra’s Mets trailed the Chicago Cubs by 9½ games in the National League East. The Mets rallied to win the division title on the final day of the season.

When giving directions to Joe Garagiola to his New Jersey home, which was accessible by two routes: “When you come to a fork in the road, take it.”

At Yogi Berra Day at Sportsman Park in St. Louis: “Thank you for making this day necessary.”

“It’s déjà vu all over again”. Berra explained that this quote originated when he witnessed Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris repeatedly hit back-to-back home runs in the Yankees’ seasons in the early 1960s.

“You can observe a lot by watching.”

“Always go to other people’s funerals, otherwise they won’t go to yours.”
