It’s never too early to start thinking about next year’s Halloween costume. Most people will wait until the last minute and end up with some stupid Flintstones costume, but if you’re proactive then next year you could impress everybody at the big party with your stupid Flintstones’ costume that was once worn by Darren McFadden.
The Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble costumes Arkansas’ Bedrock backfield of Darren McFadden and Felix Jones sported on Halloween are going up for auction on www.Hogwired.com Thursday afternoon with the proceeds going to charity.
The auction will be open for more than a week and will close on Friday, Nov. 16, at 3 p.m. Both costumes will be sold together and will include an autographed picture of Darren and Felix wearing the costumes.
The money from the auction will be split with half being donated to Darren’s hometown Boys and Girls Club in Little Rock, while the other half of the proceeds will go to the Boys and Girls Club in Felix’s hometown of Tulsa, Okla.
Both Darren and Felix donned the costumes on Halloween and attended classes, mingled with students and then met the media at the student union during lunch.
Uh-oh, this guy seems pretty uninhibited and he’s willing to make himself the butt of jokes. Watch your back, Clinton Portis; McFadden’s impending arrival to Sunday football could mean the end of your role as the league’s goofiest goofball.
