*My stomach hurts I’m laughing so hard.
A Yankees fan, embarrassed because he was caught on the jumbo-tron with his head all cocked to the side and slobbering as he slept, is suing after two announcers poked fun at his slumber on camera.
Can you spell “bad sport?”
It took place at a recent game between the Yankees and the Red Sox.
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.
In the weirdly-worded filing, Rector 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, in which Rector also claims he is suffering from “emotional distress,” says the announcers comments paint him 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.”
Major League Baseball has posted the “verbal assault” in question online on their official YouTube account.
