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."

Nice! And good to have a confirmation from the man himself. Thanks, Tracy! About time to prepare the things I want signed then. Now, if those MCE organisers would only manage to send the tickets, which were paid ages ago

Gosh, I'm so looking forward to this weekend, can't wait!

Dirk has just informed me that he will NOT be at the Movie and Comic Event in Bottrop Germany after all.
Conflict in schedule.

I'm sorry Karin

aw, noooooo!!!

Now I'm shattered. I've so been looking forward to seeing him! He hasn't cancelled a con in ages, and now this! I've just lost all my interest in the event, but since I've already paid for the tickets I guess I should go for one day and see Richard at least.

Please tell me you're only joking...

You must be sure and tell Richard how disappointed you are that Dirk couldn't make it

Seriously, so sorry you won't get to meet Dirk there. But he seems to like being in that neighborhood, so maybe another place, another time.

Ooh, thanks for your support, Ost and Christy! I'm feeling better already

@Ost: LOL, you're a cheeky girl Unfortunately this 'neighbourhood' means mostly the UK, which is normally a bit far from here. Even Belgium in October will not happen for me. But I'm so disappointed, I'm seriously considering flying over to England for a weekend next year, if he really does another round of Columbo over there! Actually - I could have done that this year, if I hadn't waited for the con...

@Christy: true, Richard can be very charming and I sure like him, but...he's not Dirk and I seem to prefer Dirk's personality over Richard's these days (sorry, Richard).

......sorry, I tried to cheer ya up abit. But I honestly must say that I'd be very if he had to cancel a con appearance that I planned to attend ...sadly, it happens. And (before any1 'pounces' on me..) I know/and understand that it can't be helped !
I sincerely hope that it works out for you to see him as Columbo (if, like you say-he does another 'round') !!
*pouts*...wish the Columbo tour would come to USA...

I am, believe me, more than I can say. I was grumpy all day today Especially since I know that there aren't so many cons in driving distance of my place and the chance to see Dirk here is more than slim

Yeah, I know and accept it as well, but I'm still very disappointed. Columbo seems to be the only option at the moment to make up for the current disaster, sort of.

Keep your fingers crossed, maybe an amercian theater company will notice the success of the play and will take it to the US with the same cast?

Well, one can dream, right??

Thanks Flash !!

Will do...(keeping fingers crossed that maybe, just maybe the theater company comes here...)...AND...crossing them for you that things all work out and you get to see Dirk as Columbo !!

Oh, how soo very true that is ! That's about all I've got left...dreams...*sigh*

...*returning now to my 'Fantasy Island'*...lol...

Thanks for your sweet words, my friend. Yes, you do know, I've pestered you with this subject more than enough However, things happen and maybe I'll get another chance. The tickets are paid and I'm still going. Seeing Richard again after a decade will be nice as well. It's expensive enough with tickets and hotel, so I'll do my very best to enjoy the weekend, even if Dirk is not there

Anyone here also going to FACTS Belgium? I am planning to go (Gent is 2 hours driving but we are taking the kids and are going to make it a fun day out!) I guess I will bring my photo with D&D for them both to sign AND Dirks book "And then we went fishing".
Am also thinking about taking some miso with me... Anyone any tips on what else I could bring for him?
