This is Andrew Rector of New York...ESPN devoted about 90 seconds to the 26-year-old sleeping at a ball game back in April, and now he's suing for damages!
Andrew was at Yankee Stadium for a game against the Boston Red Sox, and FELL ASLEEP during the fourth inning. The cameras caught him sleeping . . . and then stayed on him.
So the two commentators started talking about him. They referred to him as, quote, "oblivious" and made fun of him for sleeping. The clip went a tiny bit viral . . . and Internet commenters also made fun of him, which is what Internet commenters do.
So naturally, Andrew just filed a $10 million LAWSUIT against ESPN and Major League Baseball for disparaging him and leading to a, quote, "unending verbal crusade."
Our take? Lighten Up, Andrew!
