Man wants prison sentence to match Bird's jersey number
(AP) - An Oklahoma 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 [Man] wanted his prison term to match Bird's Boston Celtics jersey number 33.
Oklahoma County District Judge Ray Elliott says the man was happy when he accommodated his request.
Man is a complete idiot.
