Ted Williams...a homeless guy's story.

I'm sure you guys have heard of this guy by now...



Well this morning he made it on to an Ohio radio show and is now getting jobs offers left and right. I found the live streaming radio feed, but I don't want to listen to the bad music.

So here is his interview with the music chopped out:

http://www.youtube.com/user/Bunomous#p/p

The parts go in order of the playlist... he's on Today show tomorrow morning. No one likes bein at the rock bottom, it's just nice to see he's back on his feet and actually using his talent again to get off the streets.

I wish him the best, the voice sure surprised me! Love to see people rise back up after hitting rock bottom, because sometimes, they don't.

good for him!! it's good to see that america can still be the land of opportunity. most people would look at this guy and just blow him off, never imagining he had this talent. probably myself included.

makes me think of all the ex-white collar guys working as bartenders and waiters. you never know who you are talking to (or talking down to), so it's best to just be polite.

This guy used to beg not too far from my house. It's awesome that he is getting a second chance. hopefully he doesn't fall back into destructive habits with all the money he has been offered to do voice-overs since the video erupted.

I saw that the Cleveland Cav's hired him for a full time position, and it says they are also getting him a house and will be paying his mortgage.

I caught the story last night in PA. It was mentioned making a made for TV movie about this guy's life - if he can maintain his sobriety.
