Daily Talker: Sleeping Yankee Fan Sues ESPN For “Mental Anguish”

A Yankees fan is suing two ESPN announcers for $10 million, saying they mocked him when he was caught on national television sleeping in his seat during a game at Yankee Stadium.

Andrew Robert Rector admits in court documents he “napped” during a game against the Boston Red Sox on April 13, but says commentators Dan Shulman and John Kruk unleashed an “avalanche of disparaging words” against him. The suit says they used words like “fatty” and “stupid.”
