Post by badpenny on 10 minutes ago

One of the greatest catchers in the history of baseball, Laurence Peter Berra, affectionately known as "Yogi", died yesterday at the age of 90. Playing with the New York Yankees, he won a (still standing) record 10 World Series rings.

He was also known for his humorous malapropisms, such as:

"It ain't over 'til it's over."

"Baseball is 90% mental; the other half is physical."

"Always go to other peoples' funerals, or they won't come to yours."

"It's déjà vu all over again."

RIP

Honestly I didn't even realize Yogi was still alive! A beautiful life and one that shaped American vernacular.. Also one of the few actual human beings ever involved in professional sports

Those aren't malapropisms

Yogi was the bench coach for the Houston Astros in the early 80's when I first lived in Houston. Great guy. 10 time World Series winner. 3 time MVP. stromed the beach on D-Day, earned a Purple Heart.
