Golden Tate broke into a donut shop.
Of course, the article wouldn't be complete without some quotes from Tate himself:
"Freshly baked. I made the mistake of -- a buddy made the mistake going in grabbing a couple. We ate them."
"They just kind of said 'don't do it again,' which I won't. But if you ever want maple bars, that's the place to go."
You would think the Seahawks organization would be furious, right? Not so much -- although it helps to have a head coach as cool as Pete Carroll, who remarked:
"No, I'm not disappointed at a guy being at a doughnut shop at 3 in the morning when they got maple bars like Top Pot has. However, under the circumstances, I think they were closed or something like that, trying to close, or whatever. That's definitely wrong. We've talked about it, addressed it. He's remorseful and all that. I do understand the lure of the maple bars."
So congratulations, Golden Tate. You may have gotten a talking-to from the cops and from the Seahawks. But in doing so, you've won the hearts and stomachs of fans everywhere. My appetite and I salute you.
