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.
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?
