It’s often said, ‘if you snooze, you lose!’

But in the case of Yankees fan Andrew Rector, he’s hoping his nationally broadcasted nap earns him some major dough!

As we previously reported, Rector was caught on camera at a Yankees-Red Sox game fast asleep in his seat during the 4th inning! ESPN announcers John Kruk and Dan Shulman made some innocent jokes about him nodding off and everybody watching at home no doubt got a good chuckle at Rector’s expense.

But Andrew ain’t laughing!

He filed a $10 million lawsuit against the sports cable company, as well as Kruk and Shulman for humiliating him in front of millions of people!

We’re sorry you were embarrassed buddy, but not even Derek Jeter makes that kind of money for a single game!

The world collectively rolled its eyes after Rector went public with his intentions to sue. But he wants his lawsuit to be taken seriously!

So he sat down with Matt Lauer this morning to discuss why he wants to win this case.

Hey, we’re impressed Andrew managed to stay awake long enough to tell his side of the story on the Today show, saying:

“Put yourself in my shoes. How would you feel if you were broadcasted on TV all over the media, they put me on YouTube. There were so many derogatory comments that was caused by what they did.”

This interview isn’t going to help stop those derogatory comments, Andrew.

Matt tried to talk some sense into him though, asking if everyone who he was angry with would say they were sorry, would he just drop this whole thing?

Want to hear his answer?

    He needs to get up off that chair and get a life. What a total loser.

    There were more negative comments posted here than were ever said about him on TV. I want to know what sort of idiot lawyer would even take this case. I hope it gets tossed and he gets nothing.

    Words can hurt. And when people choose to humiliate others in front of the whole nation, they should be open to the consequences. If this man feels that he has been in some way hurt by the comments, let him do whatever he feel necessary. Are we trying to stop bullying or enforce it? And for Perez to say this? Didn't expect less to be honest.
