Where did the "buckety" come from?
This is often repeated.
A few years ago, I talked on the phone to A.Y. Thomas, one of the spectators who signed the affidavit in post#7. He said that the table had been newly covered but the pockets were not easy.
Also, Willie definitely missed (the 6 ball); and it took a lot longer than the "couple of hours" Mosconi mentioned.
It would be interesting to find out if others who witnessed the run are still alive and willing to talk about it.
