The Seahawks lost a receiver when Golden Tate signed with the Detroit Lions Wednesday. Top Pot Doughnuts lost what is probably the most famous fan of its maple bars.

“Come back to visit someday!” urged a congratulatory tweet from the local doughnut chain, along with a poster alluding to the time Tate received a trespassing warning for entering a cafe in the building where he lived at 3 a.m. in search of its “irresistible” maple bars. The message has been retweeted more than 250 times.

Tate, who had immediately apologized for the 2010 incident, later drew hundreds of fans when he appeared at the 2012 opening of a new Top Pot store to sign autographs. Business co-founder Mark Klebeck told TMZ earlier this year that the star used the incident as a learning experience to mature into a better player and a better person.
