“I was in NYC and a black guy asked me if the Yankees won…” (joke)

The New York Yankees don’t have anything to do with the Yankees of the Civil War, but there’s a joke:

“I was in NYC and this black guy asked me if the Yankees won, I said, ‘Yeah Man, you’re free.’”

The joke was tweeted by Very Rude Tweets on July 19, 2012.
