Hot on the heels of Lindsay Lohan’s lawsuit against video game company Rockstar (she is claiming they created a character based on her without her consent for their smash hit Grand Theft Auto franchise), Theo Epstein is apparently following suit. Epstein is alleging that the Maple Leafs have created a GM character exactly in his likeness.
“It’s obviously a GM based off of me” said a visibiy agitated Epstein to a crowd of reporters. “I mean, look at the facts. I was a young hot shot GM who had an eye for advanced stats. Check. I was a surprisingly young 28 years old when I was hired. Check. I was hired with the hopes of salvaging a historic franchise that is known for choking. Double check. I have a pretty kick ass smile. Triple check. I smell fantastic. A billion checks. That god damn Dubas is a rip off of me!”
It is being reported that Epstein is asking for $5,000,000 in damages, as well as the services of Phil Kessel for a year. “He seems like he’d be a fun guy to hang out with.”
