Once again, good ol’ Yogi Berra, the late, great Yankee catcher and, according to my statistics, the most quoted American since Mark Twain, offers valuable perspective in these difficult covid/delta variant times: “It ain’t over ’til it’s over,” said Yogi. Thank you, Yogi.
Yogi was also quoted as saying, “it’s deja vue all over again”, which again is an apt description of this second (or is it the third?) covid wave. Maybe Yogi should have worked for the CDC. Yogi was a terrific left-handed power hitter, but he was also a realist.
Personally, I’m pretty tired of the covid restrictions, but it looks like we’re in for another round of them. And, what’s worse, we’re in for another deja vue of “political” opposition to public health measures. Again, to quote Yogi, We’ve “already made too many wrong mistakes”. Personally, I’m not sure if we’ll ever get back to “normal”. I’m not even sure “normal” was so hot in the first place.
So, hang in there, campers. Yogi probably would have advised us to hold on to our face masks. As a catcher, Yogi always wore a mask.
Yogi also purportedly said: “I never said most of the things I said”
