Cue this guy. Dude falls asleep at a Skankees - Red Sox game. Now, I'm not a rocket scientist, but I also don't live under a freaking rock. I know there's a huge rivalry between the Skankees and the Sox. But this poor bastard apparently cares nothing for the rivalry. In fact, he was so bored at the game back in April, he fell asleep. Enter ESPN sports commentators Dan Shulman and John Kruk. The ESPN camera pans to this sleeping beauty, Shulman and Kruk say something about him and move on with their lives. Sleepy gets his panties in a bunch and decides to sue MLB, ESPN, The Skankees, Dan Shulman and The Krukker for $10 million clams.

Are you freaking kidding me?? This guy's over-inflated sense of self worth is astounding to me. He claims 'substantial injury to his character and reputation'. Oh and add in 'mental anguish, LOSS OF FUTURE INCOME, and loss of earning capacity'. Excuse me while I bang my head against the wall.
$10 million?? This guy falls asleep, gets spotted by the cameras, the announcers say something about him being comfy and he believes he's owed TEN. MILLION. DOLLARS. I want to punch this guy in the nuts.
First of all, he's a Skankees fan. What self-respecting Skankees fan FALLS ASLEEP during a game against the Red Sox?? And on what planet would this schlepp make $10 million in his lifetime??
Secondly, Shulman and Kruk never actually said any of the things he's claiming they said on their broadcast. Perhaps when their mics were off or in their heads, but not in the actual broadcast. So why in GOD'S name does this assbag feel he is entitled to TEN. MILLION. DOLLARS??
My eyes have rolled so far back into my brain I'm seeing grey matter. How about you? Do you think this guy has a leg to stand, er, sleep on?
