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.

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 ´┐Żavalanche of disparaging words´┐Ż 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.

The lawsuit also says the comments presented Rector as a "confused individual that neither understands nor knows anything about history and the meaning of rivalry between Red Sox and New York Yankee" and a "socially bankrupt individual."

Rector claims he was subsequently defamed and is now suffering from emotional distress.
