Lions’ Tate strikes pose with Sofia Vergara

You can apparently eliminate one item from the bucket list of new Detroit Lions receiver Golden Tate.

Tate, 25, posted a photo on Instagram of himself with Sofia Vergara, 41, the voluptuous Columbian actress who plays the character of Gloria Delgado-Pritchett on the hit ABC sitcom "Modern Family."

"I will officially die a happy man," Tate said in the attached message, adding no other details about when and where the meeting took place.

Vergara did not immediately respond on Instagram to the message.
