Anyway, Sleepy Dwarf, Andrew Rector has filed a $10 million dollar defamation suit against the New York Yankees, ESPN, it's play-by-play announcer Dan Shulman and the colorful John Kruk, who he claims unleashed an "avalanche of disparaging words" over his nationally televised nap. Wait a minute! How is it everyone else's fault that you fell asleep on national TV? If it's one thing that I hate more than anything, it's when people make their problems, your problem without taking any blame themselves. That's Andrew Rector. You fell asleep, pal! The Yankees, ESPN, Dan Shulman or John Kruk didn't make you fall asleep in front of 50,000 people. You fell asleep and now you're embarrassed about it. Too bad!
Rector admitted in the Bronx Supreme Court suit that he "briefly slept" during the April 13 night game between the Yankees and Red Sox, but Rector's typo-ridden suit says that Shulman and Kruk's "false statements" include suggestion Rector is "not worthy" to be a Yankee fan and "is a fatty cow that needs two seats at all time and represent the symbol of failure." The statement also said that Rector was made out to be "a confused individual that neither understands nor knows anything about history and the meaning of rivalry between Red Sox and New York Yankees." Um, yeah. I watched the video footage and didn't hear any of that. They made fun of the fact that he fell asleep in the fourth inning and how his friend was paying more attention to the game than him. No one called him fat or a symbol of failure. Regardless, the used-car dealer claims to have suffered "substantial injury" to his "character and reputation" as well as "mental anguish loss of future income and loss of earning capacity." His filing on July 3 also names Major League Baseball as a defendant.
Now, it's my turn to say something to Andrew Rector...You're an asshole! You fell asleep at a Yankees/Red Sox game and your making it everyone else's problem. You're wasting the court's time, the Yankees time, and ESPN's time. They didn't defame your character. You defamed your character because you fell asleep at a ballgame. Last I checked, that it public domain. You call asleep there, then you deserve to be mocked. Dan Shulman and John Kruk didn't say anything about you that the person next to you or behind you wasn't saying. Sorry you're feelings were hurt, but I fail to believe that it cost you any loss of future income because you were probably a hack used-car salesman anyway. I hope that the court is smart enough to see through this and that you're just looking for a quick pay day! Like I said, you're just an asshole looking to make your problems everyone else's! At the end of the day, you just have to remember, you snooze, you lose!
Take a look at the ESPN footage and let me know what you think:
