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 BSG Intro

Just curious... am I the only one who initially thought the BSG opening sequence of "There are those who believe..." etc. was voiced by Baltar? After hearing it the first few times, I was trying to place the voice and somehow thought it belonged to John Colicos, not having heard Patrick McNee enough. Am I hearing voices? Am I crazy?!?

"I'm tellin' ya, Face, my ball can talk!"

"Lots of 'em can talk, Murdock. But can it sing?"

Well actually I've been trying to place the voice myself the first times I watched the Original BSG. So no I don't think you're hearing voices or that you're going crazy unless it's happening to me too

You're both crazy. Welcome to my world!!!


Isn't it Adama (Lorne Greene) that actually does the voice-over?

Make room for more crazy.

It's actually Patrick MacNee who does the voice-over. He's the one who plays Count Iblis in War of the Gods. He has a good voice for it.

Yes. Patrick McNee did the opening narration, and he did play Count Iblis. He was also the voice of the Imperious Leader.

Lorne Greene (as Adama) did the closing narration: "Fleeing the Cylon tyranny, the last Battlestar, Galactica, leads a rag-tag fugitive fleet on a lonely quest - a shining planet known as Earth."

Thanks John for your explanation. Now I can stop guessing
