I Met Up With The Gamblers

Posted by evankessler on October 7, 2006

Today, I was reading a Yahoo! Sports article and saw Detroit Pitcher Kenny Rogers referred to as The Gambler. The danger in giving two people with the same name the same nicknames is that the original person with said nickname will vanish over time and only the most recent incarnations will be relevant. Let’s not forget, The Original Gambler also sings such songs as “Lady” and “Just Checked In To See What Condition My Condition Was In” as well as operates his own Rotisserie Chicken chain, whereas the latter Kenny Rogers is only a factor in rotisserie baseball leagues. Ironically, this message is brought to you by Boston Market.
