    Man requests longer prison sentence to match Bird's jersey number
    October 20, 2005

    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.'';_yl...v=ap&type=lgns

    Really though...30 years in prison or 33? Not much of a difference.
