    RIP Yogi Berra. Thanks for giving a kid his first baseball autograph.

    Nobody will ever come close to Yogi.

    One of his better quotes:

    "If you are walking and you come to a fork in the road.... Take it."

    There is some debate on how many of these 'Yogisms" he actually said.

    Not a baseball fan, but I've always had a huge soft spot for the greatest modern philospher. I was sad yesterday to hear of his death, although he lived a long and fruitful life.

    If Mr. Berra comes to a fork in the road in any further journeys, I hope he takes it.

    Went to my first baseball game in like 1973, a Mets game. Was yelling at Berra to come over and sign my autograph book (that I made my dad buy me before the game). He eventually came over and I asked for an autograph. He said he would if I agreed to get a haircut, as my hair was quite long. I said yes. I had been fighting with my parents not to get one for months.

    RDowns ...you should've changed your profile picture ... not tasteful pointing to Yogi.

    Very cool dedication still.
