Video: Ted Williams Offered Job by Cleveland Cavaliers

No, not that Ted Williams. Wednesday, the Cleveland Cavaliers offered a job to Ted Williams, a homeless man from the streets of Columbus, OH. Apparently, he used to be a radio announcer before drugs and alcohol (now two years sober) led to legal troubles.

Guilt of theft was pleaded to this past May 14, and Mr. Williams has also been to jail for other theft and forgery offenses. He became a viral sensation after the Columbus dispatch posted a video (see below) of his panhandling (his sign speaks of his voice) and him displaying his amazing voice.

When asked about his checkered past, Cavs’ senior vice president of marketing Tracy Marek said,

“We’re going to start with our heart first. We’re going to start from the perspective that we think this is an amazing individual who has a lot of components in him that represent who we are and what our DNA is.”

Good point; Michael Vick and Ben Roethlisberger did far worse and still got to play again. And if the announcing gig doesn’t work out, any random homeless man off the street could referee the games better than any of the jokes currently in the league.
