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 Late to the Party...

Hi Everyone,

I'm new to this forum, but a long time fan of Dirk's, since the original run of Battlestar.

I have to admit I've been playing in other fandoms for the past few years, so my Dirklove has been just simmering on the back burner for that time.

After the new A-Team movie was released though, I found myself pining once again for the original TV series and resurrected my addiction to it . Surprisingly, I enjoyed the movie, but of course nothing can ever take the place of the series and the Original Face.

I also started to catch up on the busy bee Dirk has been since I last checked in on him, and I'm regretful that I hadn't been following his appearance on Big Brother as it was happening in 2007. For a couple weeks now, I've been devouring all the youtube vids and forum discussions I can find on it that haven't been taken down. I watch the youtube vids and then think OOOOHHH I have something to say about that, but then remember the discussions are long since over . I only wish that I'd been able to capture the entire live feed, as what I've found on youtube of him, although wonderful, is mostly highlights, and of course, many focus on the racism controversy.

But after watching and reading everything I could find about CBB2007, I have to just say that I am more proud than ever to call myself a DB fan.

Better late to the party than never I guess!!


7:23 P.M. - Ian is singing in the bathroom. Jade, Danielle and Jo are talking crap in the living room. Cleo is in the lounge, being NOT FUNNY. Shilpa is cooking chicken in the kitchen. Jermaine is praying in the bedroom. Jack is Nowhere. Leo, Donny, and Ken are climbing over the wall.
Dirk is sitting in the garden, being awesome.

I'm sure I'm not the only fan who recorded every episode of CBB and quite a lot of live feed stuff too on DVD.

Thank You for the Welcomes! And I'm glad you like the smilie...I searched for a cigar smiley and most of them weren't very attractive but then I saw that cute lil' cowboy and thought "perfect!"

Crazy Tommy T...have I ever told you that you are my favorite A-Team villian?

The video I've been finding has been mostly from the YouTube user KingPotter10...I don't know if that's anyone here? Lovely Dirk clips - I'm so grateful for them, and also the daily HL's.

Lately I've been reading the WHATM CBB5 threads at the Digital Spy Forums. I love reading them, but also they will mention some moment or conversation that I haven't been able to find, alas.

I'd love to see the footage of Dirk and Jo doing the jitterbug, and also of the conversation between Dirk and Ian (I believe it was) where Dirk is imitating animal sounds (coyote?), and I've seen a brief moment of Dirk in black pants and a white shirt/white tie dancing in the lounge, but I haven't been able to find more than a couple seconds of that...I'm not sure when it took place, it looked like it was after the "obstacle course" task because of the dresses the ladies had on, but I'm not sure...

Would love to see more footage of Dirk being silly behind the couch in the lounge, doing his leg-ups and his talking hand lol (where's sockii when you need him?), and then I've read about Ian making Dirk a sock puppet, but haven't seen anything of that.

I've read too where one morning the alarm music was the A-Team theme, but I haven't seen that, only the time when they played it for the task instructions.

So much I missed!!! ARRRGH! LOL I still love reading everything tho...even when the days got tough, I admired the way Dirk conducted himself in the house and can't get enough of any stories or news from those days.

I know it's impossible to go back and see everything, but I'm sure giving it my best try LOL.

One thing I do want to get off my chest though and that's in regards to Dirk telling Cleo to get her fat a** off the couch. I'm reading in some threads where he got nailed for saying that, but speaking as one who DOES have a fat a**...I wasn't offended in the slightest. AND whether it's physically true or not in Cleo's case, it doesn't matter, because even Kate Moss' rear would look fat if it was shoved in someone's Face against their will!

OH well, I know all these issues are water-under-the-bridge now, but since I'm coming to them for the first time now, I hope y'all don't mind me blowing off some belated steam here
