    For those who don't know him, Yogi Berra has passed. Few if any athletes have achieved his level of success and none has ever been as quotable. Ten championships aw a player and three as a manager.

    It ain't over till it's over.

    Please share your favorite Yogi quote. If you guys don't. I will add some throughout the day.

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

    Nobody goes there anymore, it's too crowded.

    Baseball is 90 percent mental and the other half is physical.

    The futures ain't what it used to be.


    Always go to other peoples funerals otherwise they won't come to yours.

    Nickel ain't worth a dime anymore.

    Little league baseball is a very good thing because it keeps the parents off the streets.

    If I didn't wake up I'd still be sleeping

    You can observe a lot just by watching.

    Okay, I'm obviously living way off the cultural map from a lot of people here, as I thought this would be a thread about quotes by a bunch of Hindus or somethings similar, haha. Mind you, I know of the bear - he's awesome. Never knew he had anything to do with baseball. You learn something new every day. :)

    The cartoon character, Yogi Bear, was named after the famous baseball player, Yogi Berra, not the other way around.

    Yogi Berra's given name was Lawrence. From Wiki, this is how he got his nickname:

    While playing in American Legion baseball, he received his famous nickname from his friend Jack Maguire, who said he resembled a Hinduyogi whenever he sat around with arms and legs crossed waiting to bat or while looking sad after a losing game.
