Tim McGraw Attempts Patrick Mahomes Football Toss
Tim McGraw posted a video on his socials today (2/10) where he tries out the Patrick Mahomes football toss. McGraw shared a clip where he does a football toss front and behind the back, trying to strike a balloon taped to the wall. Mahomes gets it right both times he tries. Tim says in the video clip he posted to Instagram, “I saw this Patrick Mahomes video. I’m decidedly no Patrick Mahomes, but I’m gonna try this, Patrick, so don’t dog me too bad when you see it, alright? Or you might want me to come back up for you. You never know.” McGraw nails hitting the balloon in the front toss, misses the first back toss, and then strikes the balloon on the back toss with the second try. After he hits the second try, he high-fives his off-camera buddy and says, “Take that!”
He captioned the post, “Saw @patrickmahomes do this football toss and found out I’ve still got a little bit of arm in me after all. Good luck to both teams…. excited for a good game!! #SuperBowl.”
Fans were thrilled with the clip as many commented, including one who wrote, “Awesome job Tim! The Chiefs may need you as a backup, but I’m rooting for the Eagles!!” One fan said, “When does the free agency window open up? Sign that guy!” One more fan commented, “Tim!! Go Chiefs!!”
During the 2022 World Series, Tim attended Game 3 of the World Series and wore his father’s (Tug McGraw) jersey (No. 45) to the game. That’s the jersey that Tug wore for the Phillies from 1975-84. Tim was spotted wearing the famous jersey on the big screen at Citizens Bank Park. It was a good night for Philadelphia: the Phillies won 7-0.
At the time, McGraw shared a video clip of his father striking out Willie Wilson of the Kansas City Royals; it was the game-winning pitch in the final game of the 1980 World Series. He wrote, “Let’s go Phillies!”
The Tug McGraw account on Instagram reacted to the post by writing, “GOAT.” Fans also responded to the post, including one person who wrote, “You’re very fortunate to have videos and all the pictures of your father. I’m sure you will cherish those memories forever.” One more fan commented, “Awesome video….tugger in action #45.”

Of course, The Houston Astros won the 2022 World Series.
