Former New York Yankees catcher Yogi Berra was one of the funniest men in baseball, and for years he has been chided for his short, pudgy stature and long “snoz.” Here are a few of Yogi’s quotes:
** As a young boy someone asked him how he liked school. “Closed,” Berra replied.
** When honored by fans his rookie season, he said, “I want to thank everyone for making this night necessary.”
** He once received a note left by his wife telling him she wouldn’t be home after a game because she was going to see Doctoe Zhivago. Yogi wondered out loud, “What’s wrong now.”
** Once presented a check for $25 for an interview with an announcer he said, “You’ve known me all these years and you can’t spell my name?” The check was made out to the “bearer.”
