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."

So, want to hear my plan of attack? Come up with the randomest questions you can think of, and if you find yourself at a loss for words, ask one. Gives you time to recover and makes you look confident as an added bonus. I bluff my way through a lot of conversations this way when I'm nervous and it usually works pretty well. But it helps if you're at least a little prepared - the time I tried to fill an awkward pause by telling a History major I didn't feel like much happened during the Middle Ages was not a moment of brilliance, to say the least.
That's great news! You guys can already have a mini Dirkette summit if you do. I guess I'm still flying solo on mine. I'm very sure you'll find an interesting internship and be able to go through with your plan.

Thanks! That's a great plan of attack . I'll try that one and I'll try to be prepared too But a certain someone seems to be a very confident speaker and I think it's gonna be a challenge to get him at a loss for words

OMG. Do we need to warn him?

This would make my plan sehr fantatisch! I think we'll just surprise him.

We'll show up and be like, "Hello, mate. We're your crazy fans from your website and if you try to get rid of us, we'll just call a parlay. Savvy?"

"The Dirkettes? You're the worst fans I've ever heard of."

"But you have heard of us!"

And at some point in the convo, working in, "There's a 'Lieutenant' in there somewhere..."

(Actually I just wanted to use the GIF and then I tried to make the post go with it and got carried away. Savvy? I mean, sorry. )

Lol.

"Mate"? He's going to think we're from Australia.

"The worst fans i've ever heard of"? I hope not. He liked the birthday card and the Christmas card.

"Crazy fans"? Ok. I'll give you that one. Just fun crazy; not scary-psycho crazy.

If he gets rid of us, then no surprise for him. We'll switch and become Dwightette fans....but, it just doesn't have the same ring to it.

Maybe John can clue us in. Do we need to worry about our reception in Missouri? He's not going to cancel on us, is he?

Like I said, just got carried away with the Pirates of the Caribbean references.

Dwightettes? To quote Body Slam, "Is that a stomach disorder or a disease?"
