Pop Culture Odds and Ends – It Ain’t Over Til It’s Over Edition

I woke up to some very sad news this morning – Yankee great Yogi Berra had passed away at the age of 90. This wasn’t a total surprise – the fact that he was unable to attend the ceremony when his fellow catcher Jorge Posada’s number was retired was a clue that he wasn’t well – but it still hurts all the same. I’m too young to have ever seen Berra play live, but his legacy was well known to me. Not only did Berra earn 10 World Series rings and multiple MVP and All-Star game appearances, but he was just an adorable man known for his paradoxical quotes and sayings. I looked forward to seeing him at Old Timers Day and various other Yankee events and he always received standing ovations. It just makes me so sad to know that I won’t ever see him again riding around in a golf cart, waving to the fans. He was one of the greats – not just for the Yankees but in all of baseball. I’m sincerely going to miss him. Rest in peace, Yogi.
