    Yankees legend Yogi Berra dies at 90

    Yogi Berra, Yankee Who Built His Stardom 90 Percent on Skill and Half on Wit, Dies at 90
    Sports world reacts to the death of Yankees legend Yogi Berra

    Johnny Bench (Cincinnati Reds, 1967 to 1983) posted a telegram from Berra, when Bench broke Berra's home run record. Both were catchers.

    Not a Yankees fan, but no doubt he was a legend

    Coincidentally, just the day before, I was talking with a colleague about the timeline for finishing a project. It turned out there's no real deadline for it, so we agreed, "OK, then it ain't over till it's over."

    Now it really is over for him. :oldfrown:

    I'll never forget his transcendent advice, "When you come to a fork in the road, take it."

    While Yogi "did not say everything he said " , another one attributed to him was:

    " Nobody goes there any more, it is too crowded"

    Probably my favorite "Yogi-ism."

    Some more:
    "It gets late early out here."
    "It's deja vu all over again."
    "You can observe a lot by watching."
    "If you don't know where you're going, you might not get there."
    "Ninety percent of the game is half mental."
    "The future ain't what it used to be."
    "If the world were perfect, it wouldn't be."
    From the book, "When You Come to a Fork in the Road, Take It!", by Yogi Berra, with Dave Kaplan
