Sleeping Baseball Fan Sues ESPN For $10 Million

Sleepingfan1

(PCM) Recently, 26-year old Andrew Robert Rector was caught by cameras catching a quick nap during the major league baseball game between the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankee at Yankee Stadium in New York.

Normally, when they are not focused on the game at hand, camera operators at professional sporting events will pan the crowd looking for someone doing something interesting they can focus on the jumbotron and of course out to us a home.

The camera stayed on Rector as he was snoozing for few minutes while ESPN commentators Dan Shulman and John Kruk chatted and speculated just how he was able to sleep through the cheering fans at the game, whether he would suffer neck issues due to his positioning and whether or not the guy sitting next to him was his buddy.

Apparently after the game, Rector received quite a bit of ridicule for being caught sleeping on national television and has now decided to file a lawsuit against ESPN to the tune of $10 million dollars.

In his lawsuit, Rector claims that “substantial injury” to his “character and reputation.” He also suffered “mental anguish, loss of future income and loss of earning capacity.” He also goes on to claim that the commentators called him “fatty” and “stupid” but those words do not appear to be in the clip that is circulating online. (I think someone is taking advantage of the situation)

The lawsuit was filed by a relatively new lawyer based out of Jamaica, Queens and sources claim it is not even written professionally. Somehow I don’t see this one going anywhere…but you never know, after all there have certainly been stranger lawsuits filed over the years.

New Harry Potter Story Released, However Sadly There Is No Book Planned

Pottermore1

(PCM) Harry Potter fans were delighted when they received word that author J.K. Rowling had just published a 1,500 word short story on her website, Pottermore, that gave fans an update into Harry Potter’s wizarding world.

The story was written from the perspective of a gossip columnist Rita Skeeter, and it marks the first time that Rowling has written about the trio (Harry, Ron, and Hermione) since her last book.

The story talks about a grown-up Harry Potter, who is married to Ron’s sister Ginny Potter. Ron is married to Hermione Granger. Rabid fans flocked to the Pottermore website and the server crashed quite a few times throughout the course of the afternoon.

Rumors began to swirl that the story meant that it was possible that Rowling was working on a new book, however those rumors were squashed when a rep for Pottermore revealed that there are no plans to continue the series.

Bummer! Well, at least Potter fans got a small treat this summer!
