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."

To all that made it, hope you had a good time. We loved the Facebook posts and pictures. Hopefully, Dirk and Roland had a good time as well.

Sounds like the convention was an overall success!

Just saw this picture shared on Facebook by "Quintessentially British" and thought it went well with this thread.

This was my first time to the Liverpool con and I had a blast. I do hope Dirk and Roland had a fun weekend as well !!!! They must be so tired after a busy weekend like this. I enjoyed meeting up again and chatting for a while.

I'm gonna start uploading all of my con pics to the computer and send some of them to our webmaster

I’m so sorry you didn’t get to go, Elaine! I hope you’ll have a chance to see him again.

It would have been a great mini Dirkette meet-up, too.

Maybe you can meet us here in the US someday...

I forwarded them to our webmaster, so you'll see them pretty soon.
We didn't really talk about that so I can't really answer your question. I'd like that as well.

Actually, it's the actress's name he forgot - and no wonder, since it's been, what - 35 years since he worked with her. Hardly shocking.

I have a feeling that Dirk doesn't start every morning with breakfast and an episode of The A-Team and pair his evening cigar with an episode of BSG. As a fan, it's easy to forget that actors and actresses have a very different memory of their own work from the other side of the camera. Plus, names... some people have a gift for remembering them, but if you're anything like me, there are days when you can look straight at a person you've seen every day for the past two years and totally blank on what to call them. Melinda Culea is a person with an unusual name that he worked with for maybe a year and then didn't really see afterwards as he went on, living his daily life. The only reason I remember her name is from seeing it displayed over and over in the episode credits back when I watched A-Team addictively a mere five years ago. It takes me ten minutes to come up with the name of the famous redhead actress in the Oceans movies. Parents regularly mix up their own children's names. I think we should give Dirk a break.

I share your opinion. Also ... I'm not very good with people's names either and I am that parent that mixes up the names of her own children.
So yes I think Dirk deserves a break. Absolutely!
