By all accounts, 2010 was a tough year for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Now that the calendar has flipped to 2011, it seems the organization is looking to improve their karma and start the new year on the right foot.
On Monday, a homeless man named Ted Williams was featured in the Columbus Dispatch. Williams was panhandling in the area with a unique sign saying he has the “god-given gift of a great radio voice.” Great radio voice indeed — check it out:
The video created an overnight internet sensation, and the Cleveland Cavaliers stepped up to the plate to offer Williams, who said his radio career was derailed by struggles with drugs and alcohol, free housing and work doing voiceovers for the team.
The Internet can be a cruel mistress at times, but it seems in this case it has used its powers for good and not for evil. Kudos to the Cavs organization for giving Williams another chance and hopefully a happy ending.
