Mike has been a software engineer far longer than he would like to admit. He has strong opinions on baseball, software, science fiction, comedy, contract bridge, and European history, any of which he's willing to share with almost no prompting whatsoever.

    The three people must be Stengel, Berra, and Martin. They have a lot in common. They all managed the Yankees. They all managed teams in New York at least twice in their career (Berra 3: Yankees, Mets, then Yankees again, Stengel: Yankees, then Mets, and Martin: Yankees, then Yankees, then Yankees, then Yankees, then Yankess, and so on). Umm… They all managed in both leagues. They all played in New York (Stengel for the Giants). The Yankees retired their numbers? Ugh, even when it’s about something I know about I suck. Hell, you probably don’t even mean those three guys.Report

      Casey:
      “Good pitching will always stop good hitting and vice-versa.”

      Yogi:
      “I never said most of the things I said.”

      Jerry:
      “Winfield goes back to the wall, he hits his head on the wall and it rolls off! It’s rolling all the way back to second base. This is a terrible thing for the Padres.”

      What they had in common was their interesting relationship with the English language.Report
