R.I.P. Yogi Berra

Why the hell does a British Isle blog care about a professional baseball player when over here it’s called rounders and no one plays it outside of Primary school?

Because – albeit unintentionally – Yogi Berra was one of the funniest people who ever lived, an inadvertant first class comedian whose trip-quips will be long remembered when his exploits on the diamond are not.

‘They wouldn’t have won if we’d beaten them.’

‘We made too many wrong mistakes.’

‘I always thought the record would stand until it was broken.’
‘You should pair up in threes’

‘He’s famous for nobody knowing him.’

and finally…
‘You should always go to other people’s funerals; otherwise, they won’t come to yours.’

Rest in peace, you loony!
