A 10-time World Series champion and an 18-time All-Star, Berra was more than just a great baseball player.

The Missouri native was also adept at, well, speaking nonsense.

His Yogi-isms (sayings that often made little to no sense or were somewhat contradictory) were legendary, as was the bravado with which he delivered them.

Yogi was bigger than the game itself, and his words had much deeper meaning and application beyond baseball.
