Like Deja Vu All Over Again...

yogiThough the picture is small, you should be able to tell that baseball guy Yogi Berra has incredibly humongous ears! Like Dumbo almost.

They haven't always been that long and droopy, though. Did you know that ears never stop growing? Scary, huh! Hey, when you're 114, as Yogi must be, you're lobes will probably lounge on your shoulders, too.

But we digress.

Most of you know that Yogi has a way with words. He's the guy who said,..
