Default We'll miss you Yogi

NEW YORK (AP) ? Some of the more widely quoted philosophy of Yogi Berra, the New York Yankees Hall of Fame catcher who died Tuesday at age 90:

On his approach to at-bats: ?You can?t think and hit at the same time.?

On selecting a restaurant: ?Nobody goes there anymore. It?s too crowded.?

On economics: ?A nickel ain?t worth a dime anymore.?

On the 1973 Mets: ?We were overwhelming underdogs.?

On how events sometimes seem to repeat themselves ?It?s deja vu all over again!?

On baseball attendance: ?If people don?t come to the ballpark, how are you gonna stop them??

On a slipping batting average: ?Slump? I ain?t in no slump. ? I just ain?t hitting.?

On travel directions: ?When you come to a fork in the road take it.?

On pregame rest: ?I usually take a two-hour nap from 1 to 4.?

On battling the shadows in left field at Yankee Stadium: ?It gets late early out there.?

On fan mail: ?Never answer an anonymous letter.?

On being told he looked cool: ?You don?t look so hot yourself.?

On being asked what time it was: ?You mean now??

On being given a day in his honor: ?Thank you for making this day necessary.?

On a spring training drill: ?Pair off in threes.?

On his approach to playing baseball: ?Baseball is 90 percent mental. The other half is physical.?

On death: ?Always go to other people?s funerals. Otherwise they won?t go to yours.?

On learning: ?You can observe a lot by watching.?

On his team?s diminishing pennant chances: ?It ain?t over ?till it?s over.?

On the fractured syntax attributed to him: ?I really didn?t say everything I said.?

The happiest people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the best of everything they have.

Education does not guarantee intelligence.

Prepare for the worst and you won't be disappointed.

Amen to that!

I think some of those were attributions rather than direct quotes, but it's the thought that counts !

I really get nostalgic when someone like Yogi passes... it's like I'm watching my entire life pass before me. Think back to my dad and his friends arguing over sports at the local umpires picnics, talking with him about Yogi and the greats, and of course my own memories through the years.

Yogi was ticked at George for the longest time, but they made up well before either of them diminished in capacity.

Thinking the same thought Rob. Wow a legend, in my time, always took notice when ever he was speaking no matter where.
Damn, were getting old.
