Yogiisms

Yogi Berra is the master of the malaprop.  Over the years, a million different quotes have been attributed to him.  Did he say all of these things?  Perhaps not, but that doesn’t make them any less entertaining.  As Yogi himself said, “I didn't really say everything I said."

“A nickel ain’t worth a dime anymore.”

“If the world were perfect, it wouldn’t be.”

“Always go to other peoples' funerals – otherwise they won't go to yours.”

“If you can’t imitate him, don’t copy him.”

“When you get to a fork in the road, take it.”

“No one goes there any more, it's too crowded.”

“I'd give my right arm to be ambidextrous.”

“I couldn't tell if the streaker was a man or a woman because it had a bag on its head.”

“I usually take a two-hour nap from one to four.”

“It's tough to make predictions, especially about the future.”

“Pitching always beats batting – and vice-versa.”

“You have to give 100 percent in the first half of the game. If that isn't enough, in the second half, you have to give what's left.”

"This is like deja vu all over again."
