We have no problem saying that we are a fan of Kenny Rogers; although we qualify that by saying we are referring to the early 80’s Country Pop dynamo with the rugged good looks who knew how to “hold em”, and not the one who became the poster boy for awfulplasticsurgery.com, with his Liberace like makeover.
Rogers starred as Brewster Baker in the racing film “Six Pack”, where he is trying to get back to the big leagues, AKA: the NASCAR circuit. Along the way, he encounters a group of orphans who had stolen parts from his car, and rescued them after their van goes into a river. Naturally, he takes in the kids and of course helps them escape a corrupt Sheriff (Of course it is a corrupt Sherriff!) and hilarity ensues. Actually hilarity didn’t happen, and really the film is an attempt at a Hallmark moment with a Kenny Rogers soundtrack, on an oval track.
For our Fictitious Athlete HOF purposes, the film does give an authentic feel with the use of actual NASCAR footage and other scenes around racetracks. That probably isn’t enough to get the “Gambler” into our Hall.
