An Irishman ("Mick") goes to visit his American cousin ("Yank") for his first trip to the USA. Yank takes Mick to a Yankee game. Of course, Mick has no understanding of baseball, so Yank must explain everything.
First guy up gets a single. Mick asks "what happened?", and Yank explains: "he got a hit, so he got to run to first base". Next guy up gets a single also. Mick's starting to get the hang of this game, and says: "I know, he got a hit, and got to run to first base!"
Next guy up walks, on 4 balls. Mick needs an explanation, and asks Yank what happened. Yank says: "he got four balls, so he got to walk to first base".
Mick, with extreme enthusiasm jumps up and screams: "WALK WITH PRIDE, MAN !!"
