Who the hell is Ted Williams I hear you say? (I mean that, too – why do you think that free usb cup warmer turned up in your mail the other day?)
Well, Cleveland’s Ted Williams is the star of a viral video that you may have seen by now, the homeless man with the sign telling people about his golden voice. Someone videoed Williams doing some radio style announcements, uploaded it to YouTube and now Williams has been offered a job with Basketball team the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Williams seems under the impression that god has something to do with his current good fortune, I on the other hand am inclined to believe that if God really cared he would have dropped him into a million dollar mansion instead. Either way, this is good news for one of the many men living on America’s streets, so here it is.
Let’s not kid ourselves though, few homeless men will have this kind of luck as few homeless men have that kind of voice. What most guys in Williams’ situation need is what America is least willing to give its homeless – a little fucking help.
