After Yogi Berra’s September 22, 2015 death, the New York Times ran a two-page obituary on him. That alone is a testament to his universal appeal and the sometimes hidden wisdom of his words.
As my tribute to Yogi, I’ve linked this post to the Convocation Address I gave five years ago to the Northwestern University Weinberg College of Arts & Sciences graduating class of 2010. As you’ll see, I organized my remarks around several of Yogi’s priceless comments, hence the title – “Gems from the Diamond.” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DP3Uhiol6Vs)
That was a wonderful convocation talk. Well done!
