In case you missed them, here are some teachable moments from the last seven days:

▪  Yogi Berra’s stats show he was even better at baseball than he was as a quipster.

▪  The University of Texas football team is generous ‑ to a fault.

▪  Jarrett Parker should have been this aggressive the first time the Giants called him up.

▪  The Nationals are out of playoff contention but remain full of fight.

▪  Jim Harbaugh had a better weekend than Jim Tomsula. Again.
