Willie Hoppe's Goat Farm, By George H Sutton - 07-17-2010, 10:26 AM

In case you've never heard of him, George H. Sutton (not to be confused with George F. Sutton) was an accomplished billiard player who really didn't have any hands, it wasnt just a nickname.
You can see an old movie of him here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tGHMaYaRWlA

Apparently George was friends with Willie or "Bill" as he called him.
