Jersey Red Quote

From Sports Illustrated November 10, 1975 "Easy nine the hard way" by: Pat Putnam

"What's a hustler?' demanded Jersey Red, a delightful free spirit by the name of Jack Breit who now lives in Houston. "I go to a town and say, 'Hey, I'm the greatest nine-ball player in the world and if you got anybody you think can beat me you can make a bet.' Sometimes when I bankrupt a town they get a little hot,  but I say, 'Look, I told you.' That cools them. We may be gamblers and we may be promoters, self-promoters, but we aren't hustlers."
