Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Jerome Simpson learned a valuable lesson over the weekend regarding his personal belongings — don’t leave them on your front porch. On Sunday, Simpson took to Twitter to vent a little about some of his stuff that had gone missing. Man why ppl gotta steal right off my front porch two pair of Custom J’s cold world!! twitter.com/rome081/status… — Jerome Simpson (@rome081) April 14, 2013 Unfortunately, leaving his sneakers outside was not the only mistake Simpson made. He also left his Teavanna tea set on the porch, which he says is valued at $600. For those of you who are unfamiliar, Tevanna is a gourmet tea company. You probably could have guessed that when he said the thing costs $600. Damn and they stole $600 dollarteavana tea set!! Cold word!!! — Jerome Simpson (@rome081) April 14, 2013 Not cool, people. Whoever stole this stuff needs to return it, stat. What is a man without his sneakers and his tea brewing device? If Simpson needs help getting through this difficult time, I’m sure Atlanta Falcons kicker Matt Bryant would be happy to have a chat with him. Bryant knows a thing or two about having something stolen right off your own property. H/T Deadspin
