People at baseball games: say stuff, sleep, stack, sue

People at baseball games (let's just say sporting events in general) can be rude and insensitive. This includes commentators of such games, as well.

Isn't this what adults, all the time, tell their kids not to do - make fun of others?

The guy in the above picture sleeping, Andrew Rector, is suing the MLB, ESPN, and the game's announcers, for making fun of him during a broadcast of a Yankees v Red Sox game earlier this year. (Audio).

  • Would be making fun if we mentioned the wording in this document?

  • Being ridiculed in a national forum is tough, for any one, but at least he wasn't a victim of the Yankee Cup Stack while he was sleeping like this poor guy, back in 2011. (Should he have sued the guy behind him, and the guy who recorded the stacking?).

    We're still not sure how people sleep with 50,000 fans around.  Hopefully, there isn't a larger issue here. Either they're doggone tired, drunk and passed out, or have a health condition; Narcolepsy, perhaps.

    Narcolepsy is defined as
    ... a neurological disorder that affects the control of sleep and wakefulness. People with narcolepsy experience excessive daytime sleepiness and intermittent, uncontrollable episodes of falling asleep during the daytime. These sudden sleep attacks may occur during any type of activity at any time of the day.
    Then again, it may just be that the games, and the announcers, are just too boring.
