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."

Default Re: Favorite music

I went to see the movie The Greatest Showman with my sister on Thursday, and it surprised me with how good it was. It's a musical about the story of P.T. Barnum. The theme is his journey as a visionary who dreamed big dreams and then accomplished them, challenging some of the societal sensibilities of the day in the process. I didn't think I would like the soundtrack since it has a very modern feel and the movie is set in the 1800's (I think...), but I've been listening to the soundtrack for the past two days. And most of it has been this song on repeat.

"Come Alive" is the song sung when Barnum is persuading the people with deformities, odd physical characteristics, and even nothing different besides their race, that his show is a place where they can finally stop hiding and find a place for themselves as they are. The lyrics and the music are gorgeous, all the more so because of the context.

Totally agree, I bought the soundtrack the next day I loved it so much! I will probably go back and see it again then buy the dvd when it comes out! Wonderful movie!
Take care,

The plot sure sounds interesting. I think I'll look into this.
