Yogi Berra

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

Yogi just did that, at age ninety. RIP.

I like the one where he said. "Cut the pie in four pieces as I am not hungry enough to eat six pieces."
He was a great player with many award plus being a fine man.

A Yankee great and a fund of crazy sayings.
I hope that is not the excuse that the Yankees have tonight when the Blue Jays give them a beating (hopefully)
