It's over

Yogi Berra had a proverbially ugly face, and many people contrasted it to the beauty of his soul. He was described as a comic-reading moron until enough people noticed that he was at least as smart as he had to be. He may have been the greatest catcher in baseball history and certainly was a Hall of Famer. He was loved by his family, his teammates, and millions of fans, and when George Steinbrenner treated him shabbily, he turned his back and did not relent until the possessor of one of the most massive, throbbing egos in the world had sufficiently apologized. He lasted ninety years; the good don't always die young.
