Yankees Fan Caught Sleeping On TV Suing ESPN, MLB For $10 Million

It appears that this New York Yankees fan did not appreciate getting caught on TV while sleeping and has now filed a $10 Million defamation lawsuit for being made fun of on TV. Andrew Robert Rector, the fan filing the suit, is apparently claiming that the broadcasters implied that he “is a fatty cow that need two seats at a time” and “is a confused individual that neither understands nor knows anything about history or the meaning of rivalry between Red Sox and Yankees.” If that’s what he thinks was said on the air, then the confused individual part is 100% true. Just watch the video, nothing too terrible was said.

The New York Post featured Rector on its front cover this morning:
