Fan Who Fell Asleep At Yankees Game Sues For $10 Million [VIDEO]

The story is quite simple (and pathetic) really.

Andrew Rector, 26, fell asleep during the April 13 game between the Yankees and Red Sox, the cameras picked it up and showed him on national television, and the announcers poked fun at him.

He’s now suing the announcers, commentators John Kruk and Dan Shulman, the Yankees, MLB and ESPN in damages after the “unending verbal crusade.”

But, what this guy claims in his lawsuit is not exactly the truth. As I listened to the entire clip from that game, the names he claimed was called never actually happened.

Announcers like Dan Shulman and John Kruck [sic] unleashed avalanche of disparaging words against the person of and concerning the plaintiff. These words, include but not limited to ‘stupor, fatty, unintelligent, stupid’ knowing and intending the same to be heard and listened to by millions of people all over the world. The defendant Major league Baseball continually repeated these vituperative utterances against the plaintiff on the major league baseball web site the next day. These words and its insinuations presented the plaintiff as symbol of anything but failure.
