Derek JeterBy C. Trent Rosecrans

Someone in Tampa don't know what they want, but know how to get it. They wanna destroy the poster boy, because they wanna be anarchy. … Get pissed, destroy… or something.

A vandal painted a circled A, the anarchy symbol many of us had on our notebook in seventh grade to show how punk rock we were, on Derek Jeter's Tampa mansion, according to the MJ Morning Show on Florida's 93.3 FLZ radio station, which has a picture.

The house next door was also vandalized with what the story describes as the words "F*ck Pigs." I'm guessing the vandal didn't use the asterisk, but I didn't see it. But the fact another neighbor in the tony neighborhood got the same treatment as Jeter suggests it wasn't a comment on the Yankees' acquisition of Michael Pineda.

According to the report, Jeter has people to help him out, painting over the spray paint within two hours of filing a police report.

It's reference to a Sex Pistols song "Anarchy in the Uk' it's the lyrics. Don't be in such a rush to judge...Foot in mouth

There was around 500,000 people in Tampa that attended the Gasparilla parade which usually leads to people drinking from sun up till sun down. I'm surprised this is the worse that happened. Concidering his house is on Davis Island theres only one way in and one way out with im surprised know one saw anything even if it was at night. Its a pretty tight knit community
