  • Favorite "Yogisms"

    What are your favorite "Yogisms".

    I like some like "I take a 2 hour nap from 1-4" or "If you come to a fork in the road, take it".
    What are your favorite "yogisms".

    RE: Favorite "Yogisms"

    i always like the one about "nobody going to that place anymore because it's too crowded."

    its so true. i specifically avoid places these days when it is too crowded. i would go, but i would hate to wait in line to get a drink when i can just go next door....

        RE: Favorite

        Q: "Yogi, what time is it?"
        A: "You mean now?"

        According to Jim Bouton (in I Managed Good, But Boy, Did They Play Bad, an anthology he co-edited with Neil Offen), this is one of the true ones--worth pointing out because, as Yogi put it, "I didn't say everything I said."

        A less-often quoted Yogism is: "If the world was perfect, it wouldn't be." Not humorous, but profound--and I don't think any philosopher or theologian has ever put it better.

          "A nickel ain't worth a dime anymore."

          "Baseball is ninety percent mental. The other half is physical."

          "Bill Dickey is learning me his experience."

          "He hits from both sides of the plate. He's amphibious."

          "How can a you hit and think at the same time?"

          I don't know (if they were men or women fans running naked across the field). They had bags over their heads

          "It's like deja vu all over again."

          "So I'm ugly. I never saw anyone hit with his face."

          "The game's isn't over until it's over."

          "You should always go to other people's funerals, otherwise, they won't come to yours."

            An earlier reply cites my favorite:

            It ain't over until it's over!

            Yogi is as lucky as Confucius is - comics think
            of great lines and attribute the lines to either one!

              Somebody called Yogi on the phone really late at night and apologized for calling so late. Yogi said, "that's okay. I had to get up anyway to answer the phone.

              Another one of my favorites is when Yogi heard that a women had been elected mayor of an Irish city (Dublin?) and he said, "only in America."

              Also, when he was about to say a speech in New York, the mayor's wife said that he looked very relaxed and cool. He responded, "you don't look so hot yourself."

                After being beaned, Yogi was taken to the Hospital and released, commenting "They thoroughly examined my head, and they didn't find anything."

                    Indeed! "... And they give you cash, which is just as good as money ..." I felt sorry for that duck.

                    One that hasn't been mentioned: when some of his teammates asked Yog if he wanted to go see a stag movie, he said, "sure, who's starring in it?" (A friend had to explain this one to me. I guess I don't get out much.)

                            Apparently "stag films" were pre-1970 X-rated movies, which had anonymous casts (to make it harder to prosecute the actors under the obscenity laws of the time). At least that's what I was told.

                              This reminded me of the time Yogi was invited out to a Steve McQueen movie, which caused him to remark: "Oh, he must have made that movie before he died."
