There is a trending story going around about a New York Yankees fan, Andrew Rector, who fell asleep at Yankee Stadium during a game as they took on the Red Sox back in April 2014. ESPN took video of fans in the stands and focused in on him because he was sleeping. Rector is suing for $10 million for defamation of character. The organizations named in the suit are MLB, New York Yankees and ESPN.
Are there any bigger rivalries than the Red Sox and Yankees? Maybe but for the sake of this story there aren’t. The Yankees come to Fenway with Jacoby Ellsbury for the first time tonight. It will be very interesting to see how Ellsbury is received by the Fenway faithful. Will he get “boos” for going to New York or will fans remember him for the World Series wins in 2007 and 2013 and cheer?
I don't know if it's because the New England Patriots were sleepless in Seattle yesterday or because I'm still stinging from the horrendous season that was from the Red Sox, but I need a little sports perk me up! I almost feel guilty taking a little comfort in the fact that the New York Yankees are down 2 games to none in the American League Championship Series to the Detroit Tigers.
