Magpie 73- Foul!



There once was a guy named Saul

who loved to play basketball

His size was immense

And he was totally dense

Not wanting to share the ball

I must show this to my husband, who referees basketball. He's probably known dozens of guys just like this in his 40+ years of refereeing.
Good one!
