Pat McAfee: Andrew Luck was cool about the naked picture

Indianapolis Colts punter Pat McAfee is not only one of the best punters in the league, he’s also one of the funniest dudes, too.

If you follow McAfee on Twitter, you know he’s a riot. He’s light-hearted, humorous, and always cracking jokes.

For instance, after laying a huge hit on Denver Broncos punt returner Trindon Holliday last year, McAfee tweeted about being drug tested by the NFL.

During an interview with LBS Monday at the 9th annual All-Star Celebrity Kickoff Party at the Montrian Hotel, McAfee talked about his hit on Holliday, who the biggest hitting punters in the league are, and about that naked picture of Andrew Luck he accidentally tweeted.

Andrew Luck“Oh man, I was feeling so bad. I called him to make sure he knew it was coming,” McAfee recalled to Larry Brown Sports.

“As soon as I told him, he said, ‘can you see my ass?’ I said no. He said, ‘can you see my crotch?’ I said no. So he said ‘I don’t care.’ He’s a super cool guy.

“Andrew’s like the most chill guy ever. I don’t know how many other quarterbacks would have taken it the way he did, but Andrew’s so cool and so talented, I’m very appreciative of him.”

Pat McAfee was just joking around when he tweeted a photo of himself conducting a postgame interview in a funny outfit Saturday, but he ended up inadvertently sharing a picture of a half-naked Andrew Luck with the world.

“This is how a legend handles interviews boys & girls..Business on the top, party on the bottom,” McAfee captioned his photo, which features kicker Adam Vinatieri in a dress shirt and sweater on the upper half and towel covering his lower body.

McAfee’s outfit was funny, but he totally missed that his quarterback was barely dressed in the background. If it weren’t for the Colts chair and guy with the cell phone, we would have seen a lot more of Luck than we wanted to.

McAfee initially cracked a joke about his blunder, but he later was much more apologetic.

You’re lucky all his parts were covered, McAfee. Well, that is unless Luck turned out to be the next Visanthe Shiancoe, in which case he would have received a whole new set of job offers.

Pat McAfee drug tested day after his monster hit on Trindon Holliday

Indianapolis Colts punter Pat McAfee was the talk of Twitter and NFL fans for his massive hit on Trindon Holliday on a kick return on Sunday night. But not all of the aftereffects of the hit were positive. McAfee may have caught the attention of the league and its drug testers with his big hit.

On Monday, McAfee tweeted to say he received a note in his locker telling him he had been selected for random drug testing:

Pat McAfee drug test

Coincidence? I think not. Any time you have a punter laying fools out like that, red flags are raised. It’s like a puny dude with 20 career home runs bashing 8 bombs in a 2-week span. Drug tests are bound to happen.

Ndamukong Suh wonders if Pat McAfee will be fined for huge hit

Pat McAfee hit Trindon HollidayIndianapolis Colts punter Pat McAfee delivered one of the biggest hits of the weekend when he knocked Denver Broncos kick returner Trindon Holliday out of bounds with a huge tackle in the first quarter of Sunday’s game.

Holliday was racing up the sideline in the middle of a big return when McAfee closed on him and leveled the diminutive returner. Many noticed that McAfee led with his helmet when he laid the huge hit. Detroit Lions defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh was among those who pointed it out and wondered whether the league would fine the punter for the hit:

The league may have double standards — we know they go harder on repeat offenders — but it’s not like Suh hasn’t deserved his fines. Will McAfee receive a fine for the hit? We’ll see. Even though he made helmet-to-helmet contact, he didn’t lead with the crown of his helmet. But the last person who should be whining about fines is Suh, who is the dirtiest player in the league. His teammates have complained about him playing dirty in practice both in college and the pros. Nobody wants to hear it from you, Suh.

Colts Punter Pat McAfee Donates Hair to Cancer Patients (Video)

A lot of athletes get made fun of for having long hair. Just ask Tom Brady. It’s something we simply enjoy ripping on people for and can make them an easy target at times — especially when they get dragged down by it.  That makes it easy to forget that some of them are doing it for a great cause, like Colts punter Pat McAfee.  According to the Indianapolis Star, McAfee recently chopped off the long locks that he had been growing since 2009 and donated them to aid cancer patients.

“Woooo…donated the hair baby,” McAfee wrote on his Twitter account Tuesday.

He donated approximately 12 inches of his hair to Locks of Love, which is a nonprofit organization that makes hairpieces for children who are undergoing cancer treatment and can’t afford them.  Here is a video of McAfee getting his hair chopped off for charity, courtesy of WTHR in Indianapolis:

Colts Punter Pat McAfee Kicks 75-Yard Field Goal (Video)

No way this is real, right? If Colts punter Pat McAfee could nail 75-yard field goals, he’d be their placekicker, right? And if these were real, the ball wouldn’t disappear out of the frame of the camera right? I dunno, you be the judge:

McAfee tweeted with Will Brinson at Eye on Football and says the videos are real, but maybe he’s just protecting his sponsor (Kohl’s). This reminds me a little too much of the Fantasy Files commercials NFL.com released a few years ago. Remember those? Mike Nugent and Neil Rackers were nailing the uprights on demand with kicks from long distance. Those videos were classic. Somehow I think McAfee’s is the same thing, regardless of what he says.
