Berra, Yogi - Fractions
My 6th grade teacher told us about this:
When ordering pizza one day, Yogi was asked whether he'd like the pizza cut into fourths or eighths. He said to cut it into fourths, because he'd "never be able to eat an eighth!"

actually he said, "cut my pizza into four slices, I could never eat eight."

It is, it was in his book entitled "I didn't really say all the things I've said" Or something like that...

I don't think he meant to say the things he said as a joke but rather those were the first things that popped into his head and if you think about it, they make sense. I think he's brilliant for saying "It ain't over 'til it's over." I always say it.

My brother-in-law grew up with Yogi on "The Hill" (an Italian community in St. Louis, Missouri). He knew him from sand-lot ball and another of their mutual friends was Joe Garagiola. My bro-in-law says that though he didn't hear or know of the pizza story it would be just like Yogi to say something like that. Vince (my brother-in-law) said that there was another kid there who put Yogi and all the rest of them to shame as a ballplayer, and when you consider how great a career Yogi had this other kid must have really been something. The kids dad died and he had to go to work at Scullins Steel plant here in St. Louis to help with the family bills instead of getting into baseball ... another DiMaggio ??? We'll never know.

This may truly be a comment by Yogi Berra, and it may not. I have seen more slip-up quotes attributed to him than to any other single person. Can anyone verify that this was said by Yogi or not? It sounds contrived.

This was probably not said but him I heard this a while ago in the form of a blonde joke, plus if he did in fact say this it was probably said as a joke, thats what he is known for.
