Seattle's Top Pot Doughnut Shop Tweets Farewell to Golden Tate

Bleacher Report

Former Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate recently signed a five-year contract with the Detroit Lions, ending his successful tenure in Seattle. 

Without a doubt, Seahawks fans will miss the playmaking wideout, but one particular doughnut shop will miss him the most: 

For those who missed it, when Tate was a rookie, he was caught by police at 3 a.m. for trespassing at Top Pot Doughnuts while searching for some delicious, freshly baked maple bars. Tate lived in the building above the shop so the smell must have been intense. 

According to Danny O'Neil of the Seattle Times, Tate explained his reasoning for his early morning break-in: "They're irresistible. ... If you ever want some maple bars, that's the place to go."

Well, it's good to know there are no hard feelings. And now we know where to get the best maple bars.
