Most people know Tim McAfee as the father of former NFL great turned Internet Mogul, Pat McAfee and/or as “Block Dad” because of the viral video of him pulling off the most amazing block-game move of all time.
Tim McAfee is one of my favorite people on the planet so I decided that I want you to learn more about him as a person. So, I conducted a short little interview with him to give you more insight as to why he’s such a legend around here.
Who was your childhood hero and why?
Tim: Mark Spitz (9-time Olympic champion, and former world record-holder in 7 events). I was a swimmer and wanted to be just like him. Plus, he had a badass mustache.
Where did you and your wife Sally meet? And was it love at first sight?
Tim: We met at a New Year’s Eve Party. She claims I stalked her.
As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
