Have you seen the forward being circulated via email listing some of Yogi Berra’s quotes? I don’t know about you, but through the years, I have been among those that not only found his malaprops to be funny, but quite often I gleaned ironic truths within them.

As a rule, I rarely pay attention to forwards, but I was in the mood for some nostalgiac chuckles, so I opened the forward. I found the famous, oft-repeated ones but also found several that I hadn’t heard before. In reading them, I started thinking that, perhaps, Yogi had an undiscovered talent for political commentary. My imagination envisioned the late, great Andy Rooney of “60 Minutes” ending one of his commentaries with a Yogi-ism or one of the late-night TV hosts slipping one into the monologue to start the show.
