Yogi Berra For Miller Lite - 1987

| | Comments (4)

You know we love our old beer commercials around here. Classic TV Friday pretty much lives for them and this week we got a real humdinger. It's the lovable Yogi Berra dropping his homespun wisdom all over this 30 second spot.

On a partially related note, I was listening to an old Berra interview on this awesome 2 CD set I just got of NPR's best baseball stories (pick one up if you can find it) and he talks about how he'd try to distract guys coming up to the plate by chatting it up with them. He'd always ask noted fisherman Ted Williams if he'd caught any big ones lately to which Williams would invariably respond "You dumb dago, I'm up here to hit not talking about fishing." I need to find some good Ted Williams stuff for next week. Anyway, please to enjoy Yogi. I know I do.

Costanza Sighting.

Ted Williams and CHIPPER have a lot in common.

"I've been doing a lot of thinking lately..."

CONGRATULATIONS! HAVE A BEER!

What are the odds Yogi doesn't even know there's a camera there?
