Yogi Berra

Yogi Berra read only the sports pages, so he was clearly at a loss when introduced to novelist Ernest Hemingway in a restaurant. Someone asked Berra if he had ever heard of the famous author. “I don’t think so,” Berra admitted. “What paper does he write for?”

Anecdote 3...

Having ordered a pizza, Berra was asked whether he would like it cut into four or eight pieces. “Make it four,” said Yogi. “I don’t think I can eat eight.”
