Yogi Berra died last night. And unlike most celebrity deaths, the loss of this man affected me.
You will read a lot of funny accounts of his “Yogi-isms” over the next few days. But never forget, there is wisdom in every single Yogi-Ism.

From the Al Giofriddo catch to the Don Larsen perfect Game to the Mazeroski homer to the Miracle Mets winning the World Series to the Chambliss homer to Reggie’s 3 shots in 1977 to Bucky Dent to the 16 inning Mets/Astros marathon, Yogi was there.
