Bert Blyleven is done with the 'Circle Me Bert' schtick?

This is weird and completely out of the blue.

Well this one came out of left field. 

Twins broadcaster Bert Blyleven tweeted that Fox Sports North has informed him him that the "Circle Me Bert" schtick is over with. 

Blyleven said fans "can still bring signs" so we imagine he'll still circle people. But if he literally isn't allowed to circle people, well, then FSN has to answer to a boatload of angry people. 

We'll update the story once we know exactly what's going on here.
