Man requests longer prison term to honor Larry Bird

quote:
The lawyers reached a plea agreement Tuesday for a 30-year term for a man accused of shooting with an intent to kill and robbery. But Eric James Torpy wanted his prison term to match Bird's jersey number 33.

"He said if he was going to go down, he was going to go down in Larry Bird's jersey," Oklahoma County District Judge Ray Elliott said Wednesday. "We accommodated his request and he was just as happy as he could be.

"I've never seen anything like this in 26 years in the courthouse. But, I know the DA is happy about it."

What a strange tribute. I wonder how Larry feels about that?

The Great One has yet to make a statement.

Torpy is lucky he's not a fan of The Great One. 99 years would be a lot more time.

Haggis! You beat me too it! That was the first thing that popped into my head. Great minds think smartass thoughts, alike.
