First Annual Free Darko Talent Show



We've been selling Free Darko t-shirts for a few months now, and we sincerely thank all who have ordered for your support. As the one who's been actually packing up and mailing them, I've become very curious about just who is buying these shirts and what y'all are doing with them. Therefore, I invite you, our loyal readers, to submit photographs of yourselves wearing the shirts while doing ridiculous shit and/or posing with famous people. The most Freedarko photographs will be posted on the site, and we'll send you some kind of appropriate prize that has yet to be determined.



NOTE: We are essentially out of red shirts (we have 3 youth larges), and we likely won't be re-ordering more any time soon, so please order only the blue and white shirts.

NOTE 2: All Project Runway and/or Rakim heads need to peep this ASAP.

NOTE 3: Edited to add a photo of my cat Moss showing her team spirit.

I'm rockin' mine right now under the button up I got on here at work. Not exactly ridiculous or crazy I know, but thought y'all should know how I'm rollin.

I've wore mine to Orlando Magic games, class, and when i go to coach my basketball team. I've gotten compliments every where i've been wearing it.


The nash/dirk series of drunk photos that have been circulating around for awhile remind me of the recent deadspin Big Ben photos.

That was me a second ago. I just wanted to know, where did that rakim bit come from?

that's a contestant from the bravo fashion design reality show "project runway" singing "paid in full."

mine was in full sneeze at the wizards game i went to last month, though i am kind of confused about what it means to wear one at a non-pistons event. also some attractive girl complimented me on it once, but not in a way that implied she knew us

i mostly get bemused looks and "who's darko?" questions, which is actually kind of annoying.

i make it a point to wear one whenever i go to a spurs game. i put the blue one on for last saturday's t'wolves affair, and even went to mi tierra after the game with a camera hoping to run into trenton hassell. over the years i've seen my share of opposing players there after games, most famously in (i think) 2002 when some visiting friends and i ran into k-mart, kittles, marbury and marbury's mom. my friend engaged momma marbury in a conversation, which for some reason ended abruptly when she asked him what part of NY he was from and he answered "Manhattan."

When mine arrives, I will wear it when I go out on the town with Yao Ming. Or at least Rafer Alston.

T, you realize you've become an even greater talked-about mystery on this blog than SilverBird5000 or Rocco Chappelle. And I'm not just saying that because of your tantalizing "are you really interested in working for the Rockets" comment last week.

at least link to us when you rip our art material of

or what a coincidence

technically i can't speak for the recluse, but since i saw this first i will: everyone and their mom knows about these pictures, we've used them before, and i guarantee that the recluse hadn't even seen your blog until i pointed it out to him (nice toilet shots). the one we have up today is a close-up and doesn't have the fat guy in it (that yours does). we're all for giving credit where credit is due (Simmonsgate, anyone?), but in this case, shit passed into the public domain long ago.

this is hilarious. those pictures have been famous on the internets for like 3 years! who hasn't seen them? run a google image search on either nash or dirk and i guarantee that pic will appear within the first 4 images.

yes, we'd really need to steal your art material, especially since big baby included an animated version of the drunken mavs in this incredible post from last week:

http://freedarko.blogspot.com/2006/01/euro-guide-for-beginners.html

check the date on that. it's a full 6 days before your post, so if you want to get technical...

i don't speak european, so there's no way i'd even heard of your blog until five minutes ago. i'd seen those pictures years ago and found the one i used with a very simple google image search, as brickowski guessed. sorry.

i tried to be funny because of simmons thing, had you seen my face you'd know it. or if i was verbaly more capable.
so it was just a 'joke'

and of course i know they were all over internet, what do you think i was the bewildered guy??!!

Really? I'm interesting?

Ha. You wouldn't think so if you knew I spent my entire day sitting in a cubicle and doing things that most other people do at jobs (including surfing the internet and writing personal emails).

I mean it's not like I'm William Wesley here.

If and when you do re-order some shirts, be sure to put the Sheed quote on it (anywhere!).

Aussies don't seem to know what the hell it is. They often think it refers to donnie... sad really.

I wear my shirt over my jersey during shootaround for my league team. A few guys on the team knew who Darko was and gave props. The rest of them just yelled, "Donnie Darko! I love that movie!"
