LEGEND SOCCER COMPANY
Do you like soccer (or, as the rest of the world calls it, football)? Dirk does in a big way, and it has become a family affair.

Dirk's son Roland and 2 friends have started Legend Soccer Company,  developing innovative, sustainable soccer gear (and only soccer gear). Learn about Legend Soccer Company at the link above. Dirk not only endorses Legend Soccer, he's involved with it - "and not only because Roland is my son."

This is a test...

Posted 11-06-2017 at 09:53 PM by John Pickard

We're having minor issues with the site - you may have experienced them - that come with upgrades to the servers and old code on our pages. I've made some corrections and fixed what broken code I've learned to recognize, but it's not done yet.

So this blog post can be ignored, since I'm using it for testing purposes. OK? Ok...

And furthermore...

Ain't it about time for an update?

I get introspective sometimes and think about posting those musings here, but there really isn't anything new to tell.

A New Day

Posted 03-14-2015 at 03:33 PM by John Pickard

There are moments in life that you simply don't expect. Events that blindside you, come from out of nowhere. And very often they are precipitated by the simplest of things, but result in a life-changing realization dare I say, revelation.


It's also very true that we tend to learn more from our mistakes than we do from our successes.


I should know. I'm the poster child for making mistakes. Some of them have been real doozies...
