Jerome Simpson Had Some Sneakers and a Tea Set Stolen Off His Porch
Jerome Simpson is having all kinds of problems with his kleptomaniac neighbors. The Vikings receiver went on Twitter Sunday to gripe about the situation. According to Simpson the neighbors went onto his porch this weekend and stole two pairs of Custom J’s that were sitting out there I guess getting some air. They also took a $600 Teavana tea set. Simpson disgustedly tweeted:

I wasn’t gone put this on twitter but after they stole my tea set I had to! Super pissed!

You’re probably asking the same question as everyone else. Why did Jerome leave the stuff on his porch? Isn’t that sort of asking for it? According to Jerome, he never believed anyone in his neighborhood would be brazen enough to steal stuff right out from under his nose. He tweeted in response to a fan who asked him why he didn’t take the stuff inside:

because I thought I lived in a good neighborhood an if they were there for one day on my front porch they would be ok!

Jerome lives in the Twin Cities area somewhere. In a neighborhood he once thought was safe. But now Jerome has become disillusioned. There are bad people everywhere. Bad people who will walk right onto your porch and take your sneakers and tea set. As Jerome said,“Cold word!!!”

Indeed Jerome. The world is very cold.

Those bad people probably came in on the food stamp express bus from Chicago.

Jerome Simpson's house is just the latest home owned by a Viking to be targeted. Late last year Leslie Frazier's house was the target of vandals.

Minneapolis, MN (AP)– Minneapolis police reported that an individual attempted to “egg” Leslie Frazier’s house last night.

An empty egg carton was recovered at the scene. One egg hit Mr. Frazier’s house, 4 eggs went over his house and hit his neighbor’s back door, 2 eggs hit the houses of each of his next door neighbor’s and the 3 remaining eggs were found broken on the ground near the carton from where the individual threw them.

Minneapolis police say they consider Christian Ponder to be the primary suspect.
