The state of Minnesota has been pretty cold of late for mid-April with a recorded high of 38 this past weekend in Minneapolis, but for Vikings' wide receiver Jerome Simpson, it got a whole lot "colder" on Sunday. Simpson discovered that some of his property had been stolen off his front porch early Sunday, including two pairs of custom Jordan brand shoes and, most intriguingly, a 600 Teavana tea set, leading the receiver to decry his neighbors he once thought were trustworthy. The unfortunate turn of events led to a rather amusing Twitter rant. Man why ppl gotta steal right off my front porch two pair of Custom J's cold world!! twitter.comrome081status Jerome Simpson (@rome081) April 14, 2013 Damn and they stole 600 dollarteavana tea set!! Cold word!!! Jerome Simpson (@rome081) April 14, 2013 An I thought I had the best super noisiest neighbors ever!! Yall failed ME! Jerome Simpson (@rome081) April 14, 2013 In this day and age, leaving items unprotected overnight is a risk, no matter what type of neighborhood you might live in. Simpson can tell you that. @mttwlsn16 because I thought I lived in a good neighborhood an if they where there for one day on my front porch they would be ok! Jerome Simpson (@rome081) April 14, 2013 When asked why he would even possess such an expensive tea set, Simpson stuck up for his trusted Teavana tea. @megastosin you must have never hadbeenteavana tea! Jerome Simpson (@rome081) April 14, 2013 With the Minnesota weather set to warm up and the porch becoming much more inhabitable, Simpson would be well advised to not leave valuables outside unattended for very long. Let's just say getting stolen from is just not his cup of tea. The Vikings re-signed Simpson to a one-year contract this offseason. Simpson, 27, had 26 catches for 274 yards last season in his first year in Minnesota.
