Thank you, Yogi, for being you

One of the most consistently good baseball players and coaches ever, Yogi Berra -- may he rest in peace, and may his final years have been relaxing and comfortable -- once said the layout of a particular ball field meant that the late afternoon sun got into players' eyes sooner than expected. Or, as Berra put it, "It gets late early out there."

That is still probably my favorite Yogi-ism. Even more than when he was asked if a stadium streaker had been male or female and replied "I don't know, they were wearing a paper bag over their head." (Berra prrrrrrrobably thought he'd been asked if he recognized the streaker.)
