    Larry Bird fan gets sentenced upped to 33 years

    SI.com



    Larry Bird not only is leading the Pacers, it
    appears he is also leading fans of his to
    request longer prison sentences.




    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- A man got a prison term longer than prosecutors and defense attorneys had agreed to -- all because of Larry Bird.

    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."

    All things beautiful do not have to be full of color to be noticed; in
    life that which is unnoticed has the most power.

    What a nut. What an absolute nut.

    I think if I ever get jail time, I'm going to push for 2 years. Good thing my favorite athlete has a low jersey number.

    Well if he's happy, then I'm happy too...
    Well, I was thinking when he said, "king of the jungle," I was, like, "Well, during the first challenge you would still be lost in the jungle if Jim and I hadn't, like, led you out. - Brooke Struck on Judd
