Well, not the massive, 31,000 square foot 7 bedroom, 9 bathroom mega mansion itself is under fire, per se.
What’s peeving people about Derek Jeter’s humble abode in Tampa is that sports fans are speculating (as is the Yankee’s coach) that the baseball superstar spent a little too much time with his wrapped up in his new house than keeping an eye on the ball.

Personally, I don’t really care if Jeter blew at baseball because he was too busy picking out paint colors for his three car garage. What bugs me, is that unless you’re raising 45 kids and train elephants on the side, NO ONE needs a house this big.
It’s just sort of tacky to be so flashy. To each his own, though.
Jeter doesn’t seem to care. Let’s just hope that he spends an equal amount of money contributing some good into this world through charities.
