It ain't over until it's over

Wednesday, Sep, 23 2015

Yogi has died, but his awesome quotes will live on forever.

Here are a few...

On his approach to at-bats: "You can't think and hit at the same time."

On selecting a restaurant: "Nobody goes there anymore. It's too crowded."

On economics: "A nickel ain't worth a dime anymore."

On the 1973 Mets: "We were overwhelming underdogs."

On how events sometimes seem to repeat themselves "It's deja vu all over again!"

On baseball attendance: "If people don't come to the ballpark, how are you gonna stop them?"

On a slipping batting average: "Slump? I ain't in no slump. ... I just ain't hitting."

On travel directions: "When you come to a fork in the road take it."

On pregame rest: "I usually take a two-hour nap from 1 to 4."

On battling the shadows in left field at Yankee Stadium: "It gets late early out there."

On fan mail: "Never answer an anonymous letter."

On being told he looked cool: "You don't look so hot yourself."

On being asked what time it was: "You mean now?"

On being given a day in his honor: "Thank you for making this day necessary."

On a spring training drill: "Pair off in threes."

On his approach to playing baseball: "Baseball is 90 percent mental. The other half is physical."

On death: "Always go to other people's funerals. Otherwise they won't go to yours."

On learning: "You can observe a lot by watching."

On his team's diminishing pennant chances: "It ain't over `till it's over."

On the fractured syntax attributed to him: "I really didn't say everything I said."

Spiders and hair

Monday, Sep, 21 2015

Never got to this story on the Monday show, so I'll try again today...that plus the crazy lady with a spider on her shoulder story on the Tuesday PhilCast.


This little guy was all excited to start school recently in Utah, until they pulled him out of class because of his hair.

I'll have the story today on the PC. It includes the fact that he is Native American, which certainly complicated what I think was an already-dumb school rule, giving them the right to kick a kid out because his hair is a distraction.

The story in the second hour of the Monday show, after Pack Yak with Rich Ratay from 3-4.

PhilCast Debate Review

Thursday, Sep, 17 2015

Did I watch?
You bet I did.

Do I have an opinion on the candidates performances?

What do you think?
Of course I do.

Will it be funny?
I promise it will be like no other review of last night.

The PhilCast spin room on the debate opens the Thursday show.
