“If you done it, it ain’t bragging.”

Dizzy Dean was something of an outspoken figure; his pennant prediction is not out of line with the rest of quotable career. Dean is thought to have been the man who coined the phrase

'It ain't bragging if you can back it up."

However. this seems to have been preceded by Walt Whitman:

“If you done it, it ain't bragging.”
