In pocket billiards (pool), a "crutch" is the stick used to shoot with when you cannot reach the cue ball. It is formally known as a "mechanical bridge".
It's referred to as a crutch to insinuate that you're a lesser player that needs "help" to make a shot (this is a very big misconception, however).
It is sometimes also referred to as a "wussy stick".
The only way he could make the ball was with the damn crutch!
