Yogi Berra tautology


Definition A term referring to stylised musings by Yogi Berra (1925- 2015), a baseball catcher/folk philosopher who played for the New York Yankees (1946-63).

Nee Lawrence Peter Berra, Berra had a stellar career and is widely regarded as the best catcher in baseball history; nor was he a shabby hitter, covering all areas of the strike zone and often beyond. Berra, who quit school in 8th grade, is to malapropisms and fractured English what Einstein is to physics. His sayings have reached well beyond baseball and warrant inclusion in this work to explain Berra-isms that appear in journal articles, and provide some insight into what makes America tick. 
Synonyms Wisdom of Yogi Berra, Yogi Berra philosophy 

Yogi Berra tautology

You can observe a lot by watching

Always go to other people’s funerals, otherwise they won’t go to yours

• On baseball: 90% of the game is half mental

• On abandoning his favourite restaurant: Nobody goes there anymore. It’s too crowded

• On a Mets season that everyone expected to lose: It ain’t over till it’s over  They won that year.

• Giving directions: When you come to a fork in the road, take it

• As guest of honour at an awards banquet: Thank you for making this day necessary

On Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris repeatedly hitting homers for the Yankees: It’s déjà vu all over again.
