Taking photos in a locker room is never a good idea. And tweeting nude shots is always a bad decision. But tweeting out a naked picture of your star quarterback is absolutely forbidden and will now cost Colts punter Pat McAfee a little chunk of his Wild Card game earnings.
McAfee has been fined an undisclosed amount of money by the team for accidentally tweeting out a photo of Andrew Luck in almost all of his glory last weekend.
Luckily, for everyone involved, a guy strategically held a cell phone in the way; so it was more PG than X-rated.
"Yeah, I got fined," McAfee said, via the Indianapolis Star. "More than a dollar, less than $3 million, which is good news. But it was completely expected and completed warranted."
After tweeting out the picture to his 170,000 followers on Twitter, McAfee eventually realized Luck wasn't wearing any clothes and he immediately deleted the picture.
"I didn't realize it until I was halfway home and my girlfriend got a text message," McAfee said of when he realized Luck was in his birthday suit. "I immediately started to sweat. I was disgusted. I was worried that Andrew was going to hate me because he's such a good person. The last thing you want to do is sell out a teammate. I felt like I did that."
Fortunately for McAfee, his quarterback took it all in stride.
"I called him like 400 times but his phone was off, his phone was off, his phone was off," McAfee said. "It was finally turned on and he answered. I said, 'Man, I am so sorry that happened.' He handled it so well, like the cool person he is. He said, 'No worries about it, dude.' I said, "If it means anything to you, you look good.' "
McAfee surely won't be posting any pics of Lucky's charms anytime soon, but that's only because he has moved on to tweeting out new flavors of Cinnamon Toast Crunch.
