TMZ.com reports that Seattle Seahawks rookie wide receiver Golden Tate was caught stealing doughnuts.
You heard right.
Apparently at 3 a.m. on Saturday, Tate and a friend consumed maple bars swiped from the Top Pot bakery in Tate’s condo building.
The police were called, a warning was issued, and head coach Pete Carroll joked about the situation, saying he understood the allure of maple bars.
I have a sense of humor. I wanted to laugh. I wanted to just click away to something else on the web with nothing but an amused shake of my doughnut-loving head. But then I thought, “What if I had swiped and eaten those maple bars?”
I’d probably have a court date, a fine, or worse.
Makes you think, doesn’t it? It sure made me think.
I’m out of here. I’m going to the bakery…
