For long time sports fans, the passing of Yogi Berra marks the loss of a true legend. Maybe one of the greatest baseball players ever. A man who played on the most World Series winners ever and one who was also famous for some of the funny things he said. But at the Joe Louis Arena tonight, another legend looks great considering a year ago he was near death.
