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."

That's a very good question, and I have posed it to him. We'll see what his response is...

I thought one had plenty of time to rest when you're dead...
Live for today cause you have no idea what awaits you tomorrow... or something like that.

LMD it very much seems that way doesn't it? It's great that he's so dedicated. Wishing Dirk and his fans who are able to see him a great time at these upcoming events

I have to agree with you, WelshPoppy30. It's wonderful!
And I'm happy to share that I'll be one of the fans who gets to meet him (again) in Edinburgh in November.

LMD it really is, and that's fab that you will get to meet him again

Elainesteel wishing you a fab time also

Keira, hopefully he will be able to visit near you sometime, like yourself I'm not able to make Edinburgh but if he is able to visit the UK again in the future, and as John suggested it helps to get in touch with the organisers of these events to invite him. It is a lot of travelling and of course we wish him good health and a good rest for however long he feels he needs it

I can now confirm that Dirk will be in Chicago. No, resting is not in his lexicon for November....

He loves his fans. The money he does make doesn't hurt, of course (there are costs associated with these appearances, too).

Richard Dean Anderson (macgyver)loves his fans too,he donates his money from his appearances at cons to to charity. Does dirk do that?

Beyond covering his otherwise unreimbursed expenses, I really don't know what Dirk does with his money, Keira. I know he does give to charity, but he's pretty tight-lipped about what he gives to.
