Yogi Berra is going to be tweeting soon

Jan 11, 2013, 3:43 PM EDT

If Twitter had been invented in 1950, Yogi Berra, his quick wit and fun quips would have owned it. It’s 2013 now and Yogi is pushing 90, but he’s still going to give it the old college try:


Could be fun, but I dunno. No one uses Twitter anymore. It’s too popular.

    It’s a shame that the 140 character limit will limit the Yogi-isms!

      It won’t slow him down, since tweeting is 90 percent mental. The other half is physical.

        Come on, if you are going to use someone else’s joke, at least give them credit:

        And I thought the ol’ Chipper [Jones] was entertaining.

      “It’s a shame that the 140 character limit will limit the Yogi-isms!”

      Au Contraire, .. ALL Yogi-isms are 140 characters or less, .. look’em up! Twitter was built for Yogi, .. only about 50-60 years too late.

    There is no way that isn’t going to actually be run by someone else.

    And hopefully some night they get really drunk and pick a fight with a drunken Louis CK.

      That would be comedic gold right there.

    What? No dry humor about the Yogi Berra museum?

    In actuality, Twitter is going to be Yogi-ing soon.

    What a legend.

    It’s difficult to process just how much amazing baseball history he’s personally witnessed over the decades.

    I guess once you reach a certain age, you become young enough to try anything.

    Reblogged this on zipsports and commented:
    This is the best news that I have seen all week. Yogisms are awesome! Now we just need Cardinals broadcaster Mike Shannon up next in the twitter world.

    I wish I could take twitter back to 1955 in the DeLorean for the all the Yogiisms that didn’t get written down. Now that would be (pause for cliche) epic!!!!!
