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."

Default Winnipeg Comic Convention Updates

Hi everyone!

Well here's my first update of what's been happening at the Central Canada Comic Con

Ostarella and I made it down to the convention center around 6:45 to check out the "pre-show" showings and Dirk was already at his table signing autographs. He's looking well! ( Don't worry..we'll have photos lol )
Dirk, Julie Newmar, Adam West and Peter Mayhew are the celebrity guests this year. Along with many other comic book artists and wrestlers.

After the con closed down for the evening...Dirk invited Ostarella and myself as his special guests to the evenings meet and greet at our hotel ( which just happens to be the same hotel they put Dirk up in ) and we had a GREAT evening chatting and listening to Dirk be funny and sharp witted ( as always ).

Tomorrow the con gets into full swing so do not worry, the cameras will be out then and I'm sure we'll have a few photos to share by days end tomorrow. That's of course if we don't get sidetracked by Dirk's great sense of humor in the lounge, after the convention's done for the day

Take care all!

Tracy

Well, Tracy pretty well put our day in a nutshell It was definitely a great day after my Trip from Hell the day before - a drive that took over three hours longer due to a variety of things - such as a sudden truck repair and an interrogation by the immigration officer at the border. Only me...

Dirk is indeed looking great - even though he'd gotten a hair cut But ever gorgeous, of course! I wandered around the memorabilia/comics area for a while and found BSG puzzle of Dirk in an action pose - which I promptly grabbed up since I don't recall ever seeing that specific one before. So now I'll have that autographed to go into my collection

Tomorrow there will be pictures - promise!!! And Sunday is his talk so I'm going to set up for lots from that (Yeah, it's been kind of day!)

Hello everyone!

Well Ost and I just returned from a while at the convention and had a chance to visit with Dirk again. Ost managed to find some Battlestar memorabilia and Dirk gratiously signed them for her..."to one Star from another?"

We did get some pictures! Which Ost is setting up at the moment so we'll have them online shortly. And ladies..the wild print shirt was out in full force today LOL. His line was picking up so we left to let him get to signing and we're off to grab a bite and relax a bit and get ready for a busy evening!

More anon..
Tracy

Sounds like you are having a great time! It's lovely that you're keeping us updated and and that you're uploading your pics right away. DBC with first class service Keep on having fun!

Maybe you could sneak one of the Batmobile in as well? Of course Dirk pics come first, no question, but hey, maybe there is a little memory space left for Batman's car?



@carob: nice find, thanks! You're fab in finding Dirk pics on the net

Thumbs up Re: Winnipeg Comic Convention Updates

Hey Tracy!
Sounds like you're having a grand time! Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy! Dirk is always fun to be around!

I'd say to say hi for me, but I doubt he'd remember me anymore without seeing my mug.

Nice pix! So who is in his arms? You or Ost?

Hi guys!

Well we're back home! What a day! Even though Sunday is traditionally the more slower day on a con weekend I think we spent more time with Dirk than the first two days combined! Which was great we're not complaining

I've managed to add a few more photos to the gallery but I think the gallery program got tired ( and me! ) so the rest will have to wait until the morning. Ost also got a video but it konked out after about 23 minutes unfortunately But I guess 23 minutes is better than no minutes at all

Btw Flash...Ost got a few great shots of the Batmobile for you so they're up in my album

More later! Time for sleep!

What a great weekend for you two! Just...how do you get your heads out of the clouds now and back to work? That's always the bad part
No, seriously, it's great that you had such a fab time with Dirk. Something to remember for a long time

Back to normal life! Took exactly 11-1/2 hours to drive back home today - so trying to catch up with real life and not get to wishing I was still at the convention! Had such a great time!

Thanks so very much for posting the great pictures!!! Sounds like you had a very great day!

On the table, Dirk had a lot of pictures to sign and to one of them, I can tell you a little funny story:

Years ago my sister want to make me a special gift and send a screenshot of Dirk to him. He send the pic back (signed and asked, from where he can get a copy of this pic (I think, he liked the screenshot). Well, I asked my sister and we send a copy of the screenshot back to him again.

And now, I see THIS PIC on the table to sign!!!! Is this funny? It is the picture you can see only his head and he took the brown leatherjacket. I know, that was not easy to take a screenshot, where he is looking direct at the camera.

Many many greetings

Petra
