I, Bertie, ain't gots no special sportin' stamps, so I’m gonna be a-refereein' the Teapot Tuesday shindigs today. Da Muddermark said I could. Yup. Or mebbe it wuz Gertie who said I could. I dunno. They both look alike to me and I cain’t keep ‘em straight no more. They both downright goofy souls. You be da judge. Do they both look the same to you?
Anyhows, I done broughts me some fish fer fling…..er, I mean sharin’ with all my good buddies at the tea party today, too. Now, don’t ya’ll worry cuz this ain’t fish from the Gulf where that stoopid oil company done spilt all that terrible oil. But I do hopes ya’ll like sushi cuz that’s that only way I likes my fishies…..nice and fresh. And jes so’s ya’ll know, my good buddy, SnoSnot, is a-gonna be hep’n me with scalin’ and flingin’ fer yer tea partyin’ enjoyment today.
Now, my other good friend, Gertie, stopped by earlier and wuz tryin’ to give me special die-rections on how to referee basketball, football, baseball, and soccer, but I’m afeered she mightin have her sportin’ knowledge all confused in her head or mebbe she got to consultin’ with da Muddermark who confused her. I dunno. They both seem to be of the same goofy mind, so I reckon ya never quite know who’s ya be talkin’ to. You kin read her special die-rections in her comment below.
Well, I reckon I best be gittin’ on with the refereein’ and flingin’ afer SnoSnot gits carried away……I shore hope ya’ll will come to the tea party today and make a-right speshul card for Mark. This little boy is battlin’ cancer and shure could use all the cheerin’ up and heartfelt greetins we kin share with him.

Stinkin' Mothermark! She woke me up! Said it was urgent business or sumthin! What's going on Bertie, you look a little stressed? Oh, okay, here's what I know!
In Basketball, you just have to make sure the guy throwing the ball doesn't get creamed after he thows it by those big heavy weight dudes running towards him and then the quy who catches it has to run through the big thingies shaped like an H at the end of the field! Or maybe just the ball has to go through that. I don't know where the *basket* comes in (???)
In Football, you just have to make sure that when they hit that little yellow fuzzy ball, it stays in the lines and blow your whistle if it hits that net thingy stretchd accross where they play. Not sure where the *foot* comes in (???)
In Soccer, don't let the players bump into each other under the basket where the ball goes through. If they do, blow your whistle and make the guy who got pushed score a point by throwing the ball in that net but he has to be all by himself....Oh, and when they talk about the paint, its the colorful part on that wood... Not sure where the sock somes in...maybe you have to wear some!
In Baseball, be sure no players pick up each other's little white balls. Those are the balls that have to fall into the little holes by the flags on the fancy green part.....and if someone hits their ball and they don't yell FOUR, you can kick them when they get back to the club house! That's the part I like! Not sure where the base comes in but I am pretty sure all the referees hang out at base camp, maybe that's it!
Okay, I am going back to bed. Text me if you have any more questions..... I don't much about fishing but I think you have to shoot something as it swims by! Aww phooey, who needs a ref for that sport!!!
Mudder told me to tell you she would be back with her comment after you get your story written!

Geez, Bertie, I hope you read and forgot Gertie's instructions on refereeing, I think she was talking through her baseball cap. For someone with no sporty stamps (shall we start a club?) you sure created a totally sports-looking card, which I am sure Mark will love.
As to the sushi - hmm, I am not too fond of fish, so fling away and maybe there won't be any left by the time I arrive.

Ok....I think I need some coffee after reading Gertie's summary of the art of refereeing. Muddermark should NEVER wake Gertie up before Gertie is ready to get up. Charlene....call me....we can get this refereeing stuff figured out....google knows EVERYTHING!!! My problem is how do you plan to throw the flag down, blow the whistle or do whatever is needed for whatever game he is calling with those little flippers. Does The March of the Penguins remind you of how slow they move.
Cute card....who needs speed when you look this cute!!! tfs.
