Dude Who Fell Asleep During Yankees Game Suing MLB, ESPN For $10 Million

A disgruntled Yankees fan who was caught sleeping through a recent game against the Boston Red Sox is suing after two announcers poked fun at his slumber on camera, according to The Huffington Post.



The New York Post reports Andrew Robert Rector filed a $10 million lawsuit against Major League Baseball, ESPN, and announcers Dan Shulman and John Kruk for allegedly directing a mean-spirited “avalanche of disparaging words” after he fell asleep in the stands during the game April 13.

Rector's oddly worded filing accuses the announcers of painting an inaccurate portrait of him, specifically one of a "fatty cow that need two seats at all time and represent symbol of failure," as he writes in his lawsuit.
