It Ain’t Over Till It’s Over

Do not dwell on the past.
          —Isaiah 43:18

Baseball legend Yogi Berra’s Mets were losing big time in 1973 when he said, “It ain’t over till it’s over.” Sure enough, his team won the division title.

His similar, “It ain’t over till the fat lady sings,” is probably south of PC. But both “Yogiisms” are saying, “Hang in there. Don’t quit!”

Pollsters sample three percent of our country’s population and authoritatively announce winners and losers—frequently winding up with egg on their face.

Only one of the season’s four top-ranked teams was in the Final Four of last year’s NCAA men’s basketball March Madness competition.

You—or someone you know—is slugging it out with a problem that says “THE END. It’s curtains. The opera is over.” Uh-uh. It ain’t over till the fat lady sings.

Hang in there.
