The order was signed by a judge after studying photographs of the Yankees facial bruises, which the team claims happened last fall, after StubHub pushed Yankees into a doorknob.In one gripping moment, Yankees broke into tears while describing how StubHub and been seen with other teams, including the Giants and Jets. The lawyer asked Yankees to explain the black eye, with pictures from last fall’s confrontration.
“Yankees, I want you to tell the court what you saw last October,” the lawyer continued.
“Well, we were arguing, StubHub and me. We were getting ready for the big series against Detroit. It was a home series. I was so excited. We had talked about it for months. We bought special lime for the field. I was going to be a special time.”
“Yes, and then what happened?”
“Well, I looked out at the stands, and nobody was there. Nobody came. I couldn’t believe it. StubHub had done something. I don’t know what. I confronted him. I said, ‘StubHub, what’s going on? Why have you done this?’ He wouldn’t say a thing. He just… he just… I’d heard others tell me about him.”
“OBJECTION, YOUR HONOR. THE WITNESS IS DESCRIBING HEARSAY.”
“Objection sustained. Look, Yankees, just keep telling what happened.”“WE LOST. WE LOST IN THREE, FOUR, I DON’T KNOW, I CAN’T REMEMBER HOW MANY GAMES IT WAS. It was terrible. We just lost and lost and lost. And then… StubHub, he didn’t care. He was selling Knick tickets. He was with Yahoo and Google and Yum, and they was laughing. HE WAS LAUGHING AT ME. HE WAS SAYING HOW HE AND GOOGLE WERE AN ITEM, HOW THEY WERE GOING TO SELL MY TICKETS FOR NOTHING, THEY WERE GOING TO GIVE THEM AWAY. And then… I ran at him and… this.”
“Your honor, may the record stipulate that everyone in this courtroom just collectively sighed at the pain and suffering of my client, who pointed to the bruises on the Yankees face.”
“So be it.”
“Your honor. It’s clear to everyone in this court that the witness has sustained major injuries, as a result of StubHub’s impertinent acts. I ask that you grant this order of protection now, forcing all fans of StubHub to stay away from Yankees games, so that Yankees can feel safe on the playing field.”
“StubHub, do you have anything to say about this?”
“Only that I still love her, your Honor. I’ll always love her. I guess it doesn’t matter. She’s chosen TicketMaster. But that doesn’t change how I feel.”
