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."

OMG. Having to keep a major part in a movie like that from everyone. No easy task. His family probably went nuts when they found out what part he did get.
There's a YouTube video of a talk show appearance with some of the other cast members where he tells the story. The audience was roaring with laughter.

Sorry for the delay! Here is part one that I filmed at the panel. Sorry it's a little shaky. I wish I could have filmed longer but my arm hurt after a while!

Nice picture of Dirk and Dwight. I will watch the youtube tomorrow. I wish there's more picture of Dirk and Dwight. I'm glad you have fun, Anneg1026.

Finally got to watch this afternoon. Love it! Even after talking about the same topics over and over for years, they still find new ways to make it funny. Thanks so much for filming this, Anne!

Even thought they do talk about the similar things, I guess different people go each time and it’s different actually seeing and hearing it in real life rather just watching on YouTube.

I have just got Face’s Corvette and it has pride of place on my cabinet. ��

I'm looking forward to watching the entire panel. Thanks, Anne, for posting the link!

And I have it on impeccable authority that this was a good, fun con and that Dirk had a great time!

You're welcome I'm glad Dirk had a good time at the con. Hopefully that means he'll return next year, if invited!

Aww, itís lovely to see the video of them at a convention together, especially being a recent one. I hope they do more in the future, even if itís in the US. I would love to come over and see them at a con. It would be well worth the 8 hour flight!

I hope so too, Kellie - I think I would try to make the next one, if just to view the panel... Maybe even if itís on your side of the pond.

Dirk came to Manchester last December, but I didnít hear about it until afterwards. I was so disappointed. Dirk & Dwight came in 2005 aswell, but I missed that aswell, due to being on holiday/vacation. So, hopefully if they do more in the future Iíll try & make it. It would be great to visit the US aswell. Be nice to maybe see some of you Dirkettes/A-Teamettes guys from the forum aswell.
