Goodbye, Yogi

Today shouldn't be a sad day, but a happy day. Not over the death of Laurence Peter "Yogi" Berra, but because of the great life that he lived. 10 world series rings, 3 MVP awards, 15 time all star, Hall Of Famer, he was a war hero, and probably a dozen other great things that I missed. He lived until the age of 90, which is a great age, and had a great attitude about life. He also had a great personality, and a great sense of humor, and lived every day like it was his last. He's not known by Berra, or Yogi Berra, he's known by simply just "Yogi." You don't need a last name to identify him, unlike "Ty Cobb," or, "Pete Rose." Someone could say, "Cobb," or "Rose," and be talking about corn on the cob, or a rose in the garden. If everyone could live the life that Yogi did, then the world be a perfect place. He's not only one of the most iconic Yankees of all time, he's one of the most iconic players in MLB history, and he's known by every baseball fan. You don't even have to be a fan of baseball to know him.

Rest In Peace Yogi
