Man Filmed Sleeping During Yankees Game Sues ESPN For $10 Million Because Announcers Made Him Feel “Like a Fatty Cow”

A New York man who was filmed sleeping at a Yankees game is now suing ESPN for $10 million, due to his “emotional distress.”

The man, Andrew Rector, says his distress comes from being made out to be a “fatty cow that needs two seats,” even though the comments seemed to focus on the fact that he was sleeping, not his weight.

ESPN announcer Dan Shulman is accused of referring to the New Yorker as ‘oblivious’, while the second commentator, John Kruk, is accused of saying a ballpark is ‘not the place you come to sleep’.

Schulman also questioned whether Rector had slept through a third inning home run by Yankee Carlos Beltran, which causes a huge applause from the crowd of 45,000.

That’s it? They called him “oblivious”? I think it’s wrong for sportscasters to single out an unsuspecting fan in the stands, but I’m not sure these “insults” are worth the GDP of a small nation.
