Re: [bbshop] Re: Yogi Berra explains Woodshedding
- Decades ago, I was on an American Legion drill team (#2 in the nation that year after losing first place by less than a point). Yogi was present at an event where we performed, came up to me afterward and asked if he could hold my Springfield rifle. I cleared it (although we only used blanks) and handed it to him.
He immediately grasped it by the barrel and went into a batting pose. With that, he said: "Man with something like this you could blast balls out of the park!" Then he looked at me and, laughing at his own joke, said: "Get it? 'Blast?' You know,. like a gun?" It won't make the "Greatest Yogi Quotes" list, but it sure was fun.
God gives us memories so we can have roses in December.
