Yogi's Famous Quotes!!!! Topic

Lawrence Peter Berra played Major League Baseball for 19 years for the New York Yankees. He played on 10 World Series Championship teams, is a MLB Hall of Famer and has some awe-inspiring stats. His name is consistently brought up as one of the best catchers in baseball history, and he was voted to the Team of the Century in 1999. Amazing accomplishments aside, they probably aren't how you know Lawrence. You know him as Yogi, a nickname given to him by a friend who likened his cross-legged sitting to a yogi. Yogi is famous for his fractured English, malapropisms and sometimes nonsensical quotes. He's closing in on 86, and there seems to be no end to his fan's love for him. Here are Yogi Berra quotes that will make you shake your head and smile.

My favorite is when Mayor Laguardia's wife spoke to him at an outdoor function on a hot summer day.  She commented that he looked so cool sitting out in the heat.  Yogi replied, "You don't look so hot yourself."
