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 Zork: Grand Inquisitor

I thought we already had a thread on this, but maybe I was wrong. If so, I'll let someone else figure that out.

Long story short, I felt the need to share this clip from Zork: Grand Inquisitor, where Dirk plays Antharia Jack. I always thought he bore a slight resemblance to Harrison Ford in appearance and some mannerisms, but in this clip he is blatantly channeling Indiana Jones/Harrison Ford, and it is on point, ladies and gentlemen.

That was funny.

Actually the, “I know a guy who knows a guy..” is a nice cross between Indiana Jones and Faceman. Don’tcha think?

Reminds me of a quote from the Starsky and Hutch movie (Snoop Dogg) - “I know some people, that know some people... that robbed some people.”

This wasn't even the thread I was thinking of - I thought there was another one titled "Antharia Jack."

Here's a YouTube clip with the funny Easter Eggs the programmers hid in the game. You might enjoy this more if you've watched a walkthrough of the game - which I might have done... in between working on my capstone project for my major, of course.

For the record, telling yourself that you need a life and actually getting a life are two separate zip codes, buddy.

True story!! P.S. I’m impressed that you conversationally quote the A-Team almost as often as I do.

Hey guys,

not sure which of the two Zork threads to put this on and also not sure whether this is already known but the game is available on Steam and it's playing perfectly fine on Win 10.
