(submitted in honor of our upcoming trip...)
An Irishman moves to the USA &finally attends his first baseball game. The first batter approached the batters' box, took a few swings and then hits a double. Everyone was on their feet screaming "Run!"
The next batter hits a single and the Irishman listened as the crowd again cheered "RUN, RUN!"
The Irishman enjoyed the game &began screaming with the fans. The fifth batter came up and four balls went by. The umpire called "walk" and the batter started his slow trot to first base. The Irishman stood up and screamed, "Rrrrun ye lazy bustard, rrrun!"
The people around him began laughing. Embarrassed, the Irishman sat back down. A friendly fan noted the man's embarrassment, leaned over and explained "He can't run -- he's got four balls."
The Irishman stood up and screamed, "Walk with pride, lad!"
