Yogi Berra: Malapropism MVP

Yogi Berra’s tenure as a Major League baseball player, manager and coach earned him a Yogi Berra: MVP of Malapropismsspot in the Baseball Hall of Fame, but his delightful way with the English language earned him a special spot in my heart.  A Malapropism is humorous misuse of a word. Yogi was the master of misspeaking. Below are just a few of his spoken slip ups:

  • It ain’t over till it’s over.
  • The future ain’t what it used to be.
  • I really didn’t say everything I said.
  • It’s like déjà vu all over again.
  • When you get to a fork in the road, take it.
  • Our similarities are different.
  • Ninety percent of this game is half mental.
  • We have a good time together, even when we’re not together.
  • You have to give 100 percent in the first half of the game. If that isn’t enough,   in the second half, you have to give what is left.”
