Bid on Zoom Meeting with Tim and Matt

Have you ever wanted to chat with Tim and Matt about White Collar? Here’s your chance!

A Zoom meeting with Tim and Matt is just one of the many items up for bids in an auction benefitting The Union Solidary Coalition. According to TUSC’s website, they’re currently offering “direct financial support to crew members who have lost health insurance due to strike-related shutdowns.” This isn’t for the A-listers but instead benefits members of IATSE, Teamsters, and others who are out of work because of the strikes and who’ve lost their health insurance as a result.

According to the auction listing on eBay, the winner will get a 20-minute Zoom conversation with Tim and Matt where you can chat White Collar with them, and you’re allowed to bring one friend! It’s open to US residents only, and you can take photos but can’t record video of the session. The rest of the details, including the small print, disclaimers, etc., can be found in the auction listing. The auction ends on Friday, September 22 at 7:13pm (time zone isn’t specified).

As of the time of this post, the current bid is up to $1925.00, so it’s probably not even remotely feasible for most (myself included), but we hope the lucky winners have a wonderful time!

There are lots of other amazing auctions benefitting TUSC as well – check them out here! All are legitimate, but make sure to read all of the fine print before bidding! (Tim and Matt both posted about the auction on their respective IG accounts.)

Tim on The Place to Be: A Seinfeld Podcast

Tim was recently interviewed by Adam and Eric for “The Place to Be: A Seinfeld Podcast.” Check out their linktree for links to various podcast platforms. Or, if you’re listening on Spotify, you can easily find it on our own playlist of Tim’s podcast appearances!

I haven’t had a chance to listen yet, but I’ll edit to add my thoughts when I do. If you’ve listened, let us know what you thought in the comments!

8 Years of Team DeKay!

It’s true – today marks 8 years since Aragarna and I officially launched the Team DeKay website!

Back then, Tim didn’t have any active fan sites, so we were mainly looking to create a place where fellow fans could go to find out about his latest projects and get photos and videos. Ara already had a fan forum, and I had the Instagram account and a web hosting account. We decided to join forces and make a fan site…and we’re still going strong, 8 years later!

We’ve come a long way since then, and we obviously couldn’t have done it without all of you! I know some of you have been around since the very beginning, while others have just joined very recently. We appreciate all of you so very much and are looking forward to bringing you more fun stuff in the upcoming year and beyond!

If you’re on Instagram, make sure to check out today’s stories on our account for some throwbacks!

Rest in Peace, Willie Garson

Just echoing what I said on Instagram…

Sometimes, there just aren’t enough words. Rest easy, WG. With your wit, brilliance, kindness, and generosity, you have touched the hearts of so many in this world, including countless folks who’ve never even had the pleasure of knowing you personally. Our thoughts are with Nathen and with Willie’s family, both close and extended. Be at peace, friend. Cancer sucks.

Happy Birthday Jamis! (plus podcasts!)

First off, Happy 22nd Birthday, Jamis!! In spite of the pandemic, this guy has had so much going on over the past year. He spent the fall semester doing remote classes for his sophomore year at Yale, he’s been working behind the scenes at the Chris Rose Rotation podcast, he’s been training (baseball) in Florida and Texas, he played for the Westhampton Aviators in the Hamptons Collegiate Baseball League, and oh yeah, he released a great single, “Ghosts,” as Mohw.

Here’s this year’s birthday collage on Instagram – and scroll down to listen to the new single, as well as for info about recent podcast appearances from Tim and Jamis!

And now for the podcasts – Tim has appeared on two podcasts recently (in addition to the Pack Podcast), one with Jamis and one on his own. First, Tim appeared with brothers Paul Francis (the host) and Ted Sullivan on The Best Minutes Podcast back in late June – this was on our Twitter account, but I’m posting the link here for those who aren’t on Twitter. And then more recently, Tim and Jamis were talking baseball with Denny Barrett on the Swing Hard Podcast. You should be able to listen to both of these at the provided links without signing up for any accounts, or if you prefer, just check where you normally listen to podcasts!

Enjoy – and again, Happy Birthday, Jamis! 💙

Happy Birthday, Tim!

Sending out big birthday wishes to Tim, who turns 58 today!!

It’s been a crazy year for sure – last year’s birthday took place during quarantine, and a year later, most places around the world are still under some kind of restrictions/quarantine. There is an end in sight, though, and we’re hoping Tim will be able to have a wonderful birthday this year. (And since it’s on Saturday, he should just celebrate all weekend long, right?) Here’s hoping, also, that the upcoming year will be full of great things for Tim and his family!

Leave your birthday wishes for Tim in the comments or on IG and we’ll make sure he gets them! 💗

7 Years of Team DeKay!

Wow! Can you believe it’s been 7 years since we officially launched Team DeKay? It’s hard to wrap my mind around the fact that it’s been so long!

We actually started posting on the site way back in early May 2014, but we waited until June 1 to officially launch so that we had some content on the site, and because June is Tim’s birth month!

The site came about after Aragarna and I (Daclaren) were discussing the fact that Tim had no active fansites at the time, no place for fans to find up-to-date information about his current and future projects. We knew he, and our fellow TDK fans, deserved better and decided to create a site where folks could find info about Tim’s latest projects, as well as photos, videos, and more. Ara already had the Tim DeKay Forum message board, and I had an Instagram account for fans of Tim – we combined the two and expanded to become Team DeKay!

Now, here we are, seven years later! The site has grown to become Tim’s official fan site, we have active accounts on all major social media platforms, we paired with Tim in back 2018 (at his request!) to help him raise money for breast cancer research through the Real Men Wear Pink campaign, we’ve earned the support of the whole wonderful DeKay family, and we’re still continuing with that original mission of bringing you the latest about Tim’s projects, appearances, etc.

And we couldn’t have done any of this without all of you! Thank you so, so much to all of those who’ve joined us over the past 7 years – those who’ve been around since the beginning, and those who are just discovering us. We really, truly appreciate everyone’s support, we love your enthusiasm, and we’re incredibly grateful for those who send in tips and/or photos, post comments, like and share our posts on social media, and so much more.

Much love to all of you, and much love and respect to the entire DeKay family. Here’s to many more years supporting such a sweet and talented actor and his family. 🎉💖

Tim Live on Cameo Calls

Here’s some fun news – Tim will be going live on Cameo Calls on Sunday, March 21 at 8pm EDT / 5pm PDT, and you could have a chance to talk to him one-on-one! Here’s how it works:

For $30, you’ll get a 2-minute, one-on-one video chat with Tim himself, as well as a photo with him at the end. (The event benefits PATH – People Assisting the Homeless – in L.A.) Tim said he’ll be on for about 40 minutes, so several people will get a chance to chat with him. Team DeKay member Kelli B. said chances go quickly, so be sure to have your payment method ready before the event starts!

You can find Tim’s Cameo page at this link. I’m not very familiar with Cameo, but I believe you have to sign up for an account (free) and download the app (also free) to participate in the Cameo Calls event.

Good luck – if you get through, let us know how your chat with Tim went!

Happy 18th Birthday, Danna!

The younger of the DeKay siblings has turned 18 – Happy Birthday, Danna!

Collage of photos of Danna DeKay and family for Danna's 18th birthday.

It’s certainly been a crazy year – a global pandemic, distance learning to start Danna’s senior year of high school (and socially-distanced volleyball?!), masks and sanitizer everywhere, an equal rights revolution, an election for the ages, The Great Toilet Paper Shortage, so many hurricanes that they ran out of names…should I go on?

And though some things may have gone a bit differently during this trip around the sun, Danna seems to have handled it with grace and a fierce spirit. It’s been so inspiring to watch her grow from that sweet little girl who accompanied her dad to White Collar events into an amazing young woman – an academic, an athlete, an artist, an activist.

Thank you so much, Danna, for letting us come along on the journey – we’re looking forward to cheering you on in whatever your bright future may bring! Much love and respect! 💙🎉

You can leave your birthday wishes for Danna in the comments below, or post them on our Instagram post!
