The Yogi took the fork at 90

Saw some quotes but no mention on here. When they asked him where he wanted to be buried, he said, "surprise me."

He was the best.

Didn't read that article because the link took me to a gay porn site. The thing about Yogi was that his personality probably deflected attention from his accomplishments on the field.  Until today, when sports shows have been recounting his career, I had no idea he was that damn good.  Heard the Yank-Me's announcer on one show today talking about Yogi.  Said he was the nicest guy in the history of professional sports and his accomplishments put him on the Mount Rushmore of Yank-Me baseball.  That's pretty incredible when you consider the Hall of Famers that have worn pinstripes.

The man won more world series as a player than every organization has in it's entirety, except the Yankees and the Cardinals.
