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."

Long night...

Posted 07-01-2008 at 12:52 AM by ostarella (Me own blog...)

Was on the forktruck *all* night - 8 straight hours. My thighs are kinking up from the foot controls (forward, backward, brake) and my right knee is all swollen - hate the last day of the quarter!

You have to wonder...

What were these people afraid of? Getting their hands dirty? Is this a big-city thing, this callousness? Or is it just the new way of looking out for the old number one?

I don't understand it. At all. In the neighborhood I used to live in, we had a lot of car accidents at the intersection. Mostly fender-benders, but sometimes worse. Everyone in the neighborhood...
