Here's Tuesday's Dear Gary ...
Dear Gary: Did you hear about Blake Griffin getting in trouble?
I got home late Monday, saw this note and immediately searched for the story. At that point, I had not heard about Blake Griffin getting in trouble. So I was a little surprised and curious.
Was it a DUI?
Or a bar fight?
Or some other typical charge?
Turns out Griffin was ticketed for ... urininating on a bush!
Seriously, the guy took a piss outside and some cop slapped him with an "outraging public decency" charge, which is ridiculous on many levels. I mean, how on earth can it be illegal to whiz on a bush, particularly in Oklahoma? And what is it with this state anyway? First, Eddie Sutton is videotaped peeing outside of a middle school in Stillwater a few years ago, and now Griffin is ticketed for peeing on a bush in Norman. Apparently, the yearning to pee outside is overwhelming in Oklahoma, and this really doesn't bode well for me considering I'll be in Norman next week.
(Note to self: Pee inside at all costs.)
Anyway, mark this down as no big deal for Griffin.
Far as I'm concerned, when you gotta go you gotta go.
And it's just a shame the Oklahoma police don't understand this basic concept.
