Desmond Bishop’s Super Bowl Jersey Was Stolen


Desmond Bishop is a very unhappy linebacker after having a precious piece of personal memorabilia stolen during a recent break-in. The Vikings #2 Will – at least he still is for now; get back to us after Sunday’s game – says thieves busted into his home in California and made off with no less a priceless possession than the jersey he wore during the Super Bowl with the Packers.

Adding insult to injury, Bishop says the investigating officer on the case has decided to go on vacation. In Desmond’s own words, “SMH.”

I’m no detective, but if I were investigating this case, I would start by talking to Jerome Simpson’s neighbors. Those scoundrels walked right onto Jerome’s porch and stole his shoes if you recall. I wouldn’t put it past these people to target OTHER marginal Vikings players for theft of personal property. Look out Charlie Johnson! Someone might be coming for your stuff!

Now that I think about it though, it seems pretty unlikely that Jerome Simpson’s neighbors, larcenous as they may be, are actually part of an inter-state crime ring targeting only Vikings players. You want to know who I REALLY suspect? A disgruntled Packer fan. This sounds like exactly the kind of thing a drunk Packer-backing idiot would perpetrate.

If I’m Greg Jennings, I’m putting on extra security, especially around my closet. And I’d probably lay down some plastic over the carpeting. Packer fans can be known to projectile vomit at times. You can’t get that crap out either. You have to tear out the carpet and burn it.

    Good thing current Vikings players have nothing to worry about.

    Bishop could probably get another Super Bowl jersey if the Vikings had a decent quarterback and MLB.
