Today’s quote comes from baseball legend, Yogi Berra, who passed away this week.
It ain’t over till it’s over – Yogi Berra
I love this quote, something about it brings back memories of childhood – arguing over a kickball game, defending your favorite team’s honor, or just when the other side thinks they’ve beaten you…but you know there’s still fight left in you. In case you couldn’t tell, I was feisty when I was a kid. 😉
The saying was printed as a Yogi Berra-ism, a silly quote to make people smile. But I think it caught on because there’s an element of truth there (which many sports fans and feisty kids can relate to) – even if the odds are stacked against you, you can still win. Nothing is final if you can keep fighting.
So, the next time the odds aren’t in your favor, remember this Yogi Berra quote. Or you can sing it, since it is a song too.
