    I was a real Yankee fan backwhen they had Dimaggio, Yogi, Mickey, and all the rest. Those were simpler times when you worried about your teams chances, not whether the country was going over a financial cliff of some sort.

    My favorite Yogi malapropism was this, "Nobody goes there anymore, it's to crowded".
