1. Sad news

First thing that came to my mind was,"I have to tell my Dad." My father died in 2014. He loved Yogi Berra

RIP Yogi

3. RIP Mr. Berra

Yogi Berra quotes:

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

You can observe a lot by just watching.

It ain't over till it's over.

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

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

A nickel ain't worth a dime anymore.

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

We made too many wrong mistakes.

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

And my favorite:

It's like déjà vu all over again.

5. Will miss you, Yogi

http://yogiberramuseum.org/

A petition had been started to award Yogi Berra the Presidential Medal of Freedom. "A man of unimpeachable integrity and respect, he befriended the first black and Latino baseball players in Major League Baseball. He was an ambassador for Athlete Ally, which promotes LGBT rights in sports. Berra enlisted in the U. S. Navy during World War II and served during the D-Day invasion. He was an avid supporter of our armed forces. Berra greatly valued education. While with the Yankees, he created a scholarship at Columbia University that is still active 50 years later. His namesake Museum & Learning Center serves 20,000 students annually with character education programs and teaches the values of respect, sportsmanship and inclusion that Berra has demonstrated throughout his life and career."

6. For a catcher, Yogi was quite small

but man what a player.

Few remember his post baseball years when he was a movie critic. I remember hearing his short reviews on the radio.

My favorite Yogi quote: "I never said all those things I said."
