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."

Tickets have been purchased. Hotel has been booked. I have been an A-Team fan since I was in single digits. And I am so excited about this weekend I can't keep from smiling!!! My husband is completely indulging me with this trip, and my son keeps saying variations of "We're going to see Faceman, for real?" "Why do you even like the A-Team anyways?" :-) Oh, did I mention: EEEEEEEE!!!!!!! I AM SO EXCITED!!! :-D Its gonna be a great weekend for all of us!

OK, so, I know everyone is interested that there's just a couple of days until:

My granddaughter's birthday! She'll be five. She's into Barbies at the moment...



This weekend is ShowCon:

May 19-20th 2012
ShowCon
Middle Tennessee Expo Center
1209 Park Avenue
Murfreesboro, Tennessee

https://showcon.net/

Dirk will be there!!!

Should be a pretty good time, don't you think?



I am

Absolutely no dear …. You GO FOR IT !! I took 3 myself He won’t mind and the most likely is that He remembers your name today … If you have your pic taken from yesterday you can also ask for his signature today … Of course, you have to know He charges for it … But you’ll never regret it … It’s an experience of a lifetime ….

Well, the convention was very small. First year for it. Should've probably just talked to him the first day but decided it couldn't hurt to talk to him once more. He was still nice enough but you could tell he was ready to leave. Can't blame him to much, he said less than 10 people had stopped by to see him. Oh well, its over now. Hope we (my family and I) at least left a good impression.

You were probably the high point of his weekend, Candi!

The next booked appearance is in November:


Rhode Island Comic Con
November 3rd & 4th
RI Convention Center
1 Sabin Street
Providence, RI
https://www.ricomiccon.com


Now, will something come up between now and then? You never can tell - but you'll know as soon as I do!

Any plans for Europe this year ???? Dirk?
Ever since my daughter has met him (trice....) she is a big fan. And she gets less shy every time. So now SHE wants to meet him again TOO. She is only 7 but already knows what she wants in a man whoehaha...

So... PLEASE??? Dirk: Europe??? (Zilfstar is putting on her puppy-eyes)

Netherlands would be nice Still have a Whisky waiting here (a 13 year old real Scottish Whisky) to share with you? (Is this helping maybe?)

No word on Europe yet, Zilfstar, but you'll know as soon as I do!

However, I am hearing rumblings that there might be a new US entry (or two?) to put on the calendar - stay tuned!

Oh, good - because I'm hearing that Dirk is probably going to be popping up for a very brief appearance at a certain venue in July. And there's a chance of another convention between now and November's Rhode Island Comic Con.



Sorry - couldn't resist. There's always a chance of another convention... And it's always fun to tease...



But you know that as soon as I hear something, you'll hear it, too.

So keep on staying tuned!

Talking Re: 2012 Scheduled Appearances

Good evening, everyone!

Well, I told you to stay tuned!

I just got confirmation of not one -

not two -

but THREE new scheduled appearances!

Yes, he's going to the Con all Cons measure themselves against - the San Diego Comic Con - for a brief appearance.

However, the timing is still not entirely set in concrete; we know Dirk will be there, we just don't know exactly when

Friday, July 13 OR Saturday, July 14 (I'll let you know which) at 1:30 p.m.
@Entertainment Earth Booth
San Diego Comic Con!!
San Diego Convention Center

This is a brief appearance on behalf of Entertainment Earth, one of the great retailers of novelty memorabilia.

https://www.entertainmentearth.com/

Next up: Who doesn't want to visit Disney World in October? You might just want to check out this convention while you're there:

October 5-7, 2012
Away Mission - Orlando

@Hilton Orlando Resort
in the heart of Walt Disney World Resort

https://www.away-mission.com/events/orl-2012.html

And guess what - Dirk's going back to Tennessee! This time, it's Knoxville:

October 26-28, 2012
FanBoy Expo

@(Hotel to be announced)
Knoxville, Tennessee

https://www.fanboyexpo.com/

The website hasn't been updated yet with location information and schedule, but we'll keep an eye on it and I'll keep you posted as we learn more.

After that is the Rhode Island Comic Con in November (see the notes above) and Galacticon3 in Houston in May 2013.

I'll be reminding you...

I've got these noted on the Calendar here, too.

Now aren't you glad you stayed tuned?

I am
Dawg
