Yogi Berra, Rest in Peace.

My favorite New York Yankee and source of koan wisdom has died at 90.

I'm convinced that when God broke Lawrence Peter Berra's mold, He felt more than a twinge of sadness. 

My two favorite Yogisms:

"If people don't want to come to the ballpark, how are you going to stop them?"


"The future ain't what it used to be."


  1. If you don't go to other people's funerals, they won't come to yours.


    A nickel ain't worth a dime anymore.

    RIP Yogi.

  2. Yeah, those are good, too.

    The one Yogism that just seemed to be straight commentary was his statement about Sandy Koufax: how did Koufax lose five games that year?

  3. When his son was asked if he and his father were alike, the son replied: "Our similarities are different," thus giving the most absolute proof of paternity in history.

  4. Yogi was one of ours and we were proud of him even though he found a job out of town. I imagine they knocked back more than a few grappas to him on The Hill
