Late yesterday evening, Colts punter Pat McAfee took to Comedy Central to announce his retirement from the NFL. Pat will be pursuing another passion of his – making people laugh, and “making the world a happier place.” He will remain in the city of Indianapolis, taking his talents to the new Indy headquarters of Barstool Sports.
While Pat’s retirement was a shock to many, there has been an outpour of support on social media from all angles – but especially from the Boomstick’s colleagues: current/former Colts players.

Pat was a terrific player and ambassador for us. He will be missed, and we wish him all the best!
