When You Come to the Fork in the Road, Take It.

Yogi Berra 23 SEP 2015Yogi Berra died the other day.  I guess it was the night of the 22nd, but it didn’t make the papers until yesterday.  He was a bit before my time, a catcher who actually batted – since that was before the designated hitter ruined the purity of the game.  Apparently he was actually a really fine athlete, though nowadays he’s more famous for his wonderful “Yogiisms” or “Berrisms” like “Nobody goes there anymore; its too crowded,” “It’s like deja vu all over again.” “Pair up in threes,” “It ain’t over ’til it’s over,” “It gets late early around here.” “You can observe a lot by watching,” and “I didn’t really say everything I said.”  He had a good, long life, won ten World Series rings, played in more World Series than anybody else, made it into the Hall of Fame, stayed married to his wife for sixty-something years, had three kids, eleven grand kids, and a great grand kid.

And, just for the record, I think Jackie Robinson was out at home.  I also think that Han Solo fired first…
