He earned the nickname Fast Willie from his teammates.

This brings up a good memory from my fantasy football nub days.

Shortly after I joined this site it took me a while to figure out why the "LT2" when people here were talking about LaDainian Tomlinson. But a few weeks after, when I was talking to my dad about LT, he said "WHO???" I said "LT." Him being a Giants fan, promptly told me that "L.T." has been retired for quite some time now and wouldn't want to draft him with the top pick in any fantasy draft for 2004. Maybe 1984...

It's been LT2 ever since and I had my question answered the hard way. ;-D

Thanks for that Lung. I knew he used to race dogs, but I didn't know Fast Willie went all the way back then.

As far as LT2 goes, I knew why the 2 was added because (not to give away my age or anything) I remember the original LT playing. I was quite young then though, I assure you. ;-D
