From The Police, the group...to the real police, to Ozzy and OJ, everyone's got a "sting".
I remember as a kid seeing The Sting on HBO. I hated that Chopin piano playing every 10 minutes. As a teenager I watched the movie again, and loved it. I liked the twists. I liked the old time feel of it. And, I still claim Robert Shaw is the most underrated villanous character actor ever.
But, now when I hear someone say "Sting," they aren't talking about that film classic. Or the singer of the Police. It's celebrities, alright. But, it's celebrities involved in "sting operations."
First it was OJ trying to get his stuff back.
Then, around Halloween, at a Rob Zombie/Ozzy concert in Fargo, the sheriff sent out notices to people with outstanding warrants, inviting them to a VIP pre-concert party. When the perps showed up (40 of them did), they didn't shake hands with Oz, but with a pair of cuffs.
These guys were wanted on failure to pay child support, parking tickets, and drug charges.
NO!!! Ozzy fans, and drugs? Say it ain't so.
The funniest part is that Ozzy is pissed. He wasn't told a thing about this. Although, I should use a different word then "pissed." Remember, he was banned from Texas for urinated on the Alamo.
