2020 Fictitious Athlete Hall of Fame - Round 2

Billy Hoyle

Billy Hoyle
  • TV Show/Movie Appeared: White Men Can’t Jump (1992)
  • Actor/Actress: Woody Harrelson
  • Why you should vote:: Harrelson is a major part of sports cinema, and this was one of his best roles.
  • Why you should not vote:: He lost Gloria at the end. Sure he could jump, but he gave up Rosie Perez in her prime. How could any man do that?
  • : Billy Hoyle didn’t look like he could shoot hoops, but that was the point wasn’t it? With his goofy attire, and country look, Hoyle was able to hustle on the street courts, though you have to question just how good he was at it. Sure, he hustled Sidney Dean, but for what; $64 dollars? He had to escape to L.A. to avoid collections from bookees, he was hustled by Dean for a lot more than he got him for, and he lost Gloria Clemente (Rosie Perez) at the end. However, he did prove that white men can in fact jump. We’ll let you decide what that is worth, though we will say that we were entertained.
