...and then, when everybody loses

Crazy Yankee Fan is suing team...

Evidently a long-time New York yankee fan is suing the team over "some players"
reported use of performance enhancing drugs, saying he wants payback for $221 US
dollars in tickets and a public response from his once-cherished and beloved team.

Calling it consumer fraud, Matthew Mitchell, a 30 year old Brooklyn resident who saw
his first live Yankee game in 1984 says, "If I'm going to watch a baseball game, then I
expect the real thing".

The Yankees shockingly have declined to comment.

Mitchell filed his lawsuit in small claims court in Brooklyn last week, about a month after former US Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell released a report linking 85 Major League Baseball players - including 20 current and former Yankees - to illegal use of steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs such as HGH (Human Growth Hormone).

Mitchell wants to be reimbursed for tickets to five games between 2002 and 2007. They include Game 2 of the 2003 World Series, in which pitcher Andy Pettitte led the Yankees to a win.
Coincidently Pettitte recently admitted to have used HGH to "help him rehab" following an injury.

Mitchell claims he's filed this lawsuit to "force" the team to come forward and answer his claims.

NOTE - I hate the New York yankees including their idiot fans such as this Mitchell character.
File your lawsuit against MLB if you're going to file it against anyone you clown.

  1. I'm going to sue J.J. Abrams, the Bad Robot Production Company, Disney and ABC because I recently learned that the cast of Lost weren't actually marooned on an island. I feel so used.
