Yogi Berra once said.......
I think one of Yogi's statement sums up a lot of the posts being referred to here.............."It's hard to have a converstation; everybody's talking too much"........... Remember, "Baseball(Softball) is 90% mental, the other half is physical".........Yogi Berra

Allen, I like your thinking. On another subject though, isn't it funny when some football player says to the interviewer, "football is 90% mental and 10% physical". It makes me wonder why we don't have more asians and mensa members playing football if that was true. The other phrase that makes me chuckle is when a player will say he gave 110%. Gee, how do you do that?

One of my all-time favorites, a two-part gem from legendary USC and Tampa Bay Bucs football coach John McKay:

At a post-game press conference in 1976 "You guys don't know the difference between a football and a bunch of bananas." The following week after a media member had dropped off a case of bananas at his front door - "You guys don't know the difference between a football and a Mercedez-Benz."

Here's one TH might reference to:

Money can't buy you happiness. But it does bring you a more pleasant form of misery.
- Spike Milligan

Yogi once said when asked about a local hotspot in nyc,
"Nobody goes there anymore, it's to crowded."

Boy imagine being Larry and growing up with him as your dad, that had to be priceless.

You've got to be very careful if you don't know where you're going, because you might not get there."

Speaking of RT, my favorite RTism is "A hit's a hit." (And no, we're not talkikng softball here.)

Vinny, Yogi warned Dale about the wrong road...............He said " If you don't know where you're going, you might end up somewhere else"......

Bruce, RT does have a way of explaining things , simple, down to earth and to the point.........which is "one" of the reasons I like him. Sometimes people tend to over complicate the "game"........ RT and Yogi........same mold??????

If yogi ever played in the Altanta area I would have to think about Rt and Yogi being kin in some way. Rt alway has a Yogism one of RT quotes is
I never blame myself when I'm not hitting. I just blame the bat and if it keeps up, I change bats. After all, if I know it isn't my fault that I'm not hitting, how can I get mad at myself?

Some of the Yogiism's did rub off on his kids. When Dale was playing ball he was asked by a reporter , " What are some of the similarities between you and your Father," in which Dale replied, " The similarities between me and my Father, are different,".

Kevin, he was speaking of Toots Shors', as you probably know.
When MLB baseball was trying to win back its fan base after one of the first player strikes, Yogi said 'if they don't want to come out, how are you gonna stop 'em'...

Yogi, after a game, went to order a pizza. The counter girl asked him if he wanted it cut into six pieces or eight.
'Cut it into eight', he said, "I'm really hungry!"
