edit:


"We'd like to offer you full-time work with the Cleveland Cavaliers, as well as Quicken Loans Arena. On top of it, because we know you're a person trying to get up on your feet, Quicken Loans is actually offering to pay a mortgage on a home," team spokeswoman Tracy Merek said on the show.

With a name Ted Williams and a voice like that..... he is a sure fire lock. Damn...this guy is gonna be a millionaire in a couple years or less. I'll be begging him for some change.

Damn I came in here to make a joke about the Cavs having a history of hiring bums and Lebron not being around to carry this one on his shoulders too, but then I watched the video and was legitimately impressed. Nice.

That was nice of them to offer him a job with the Cavs, but I don't think he's going to be a very good small forward.

Hollinger's formula has them at +5 wins with him on the team though....

reminds me of the homeless man that was given 100K cash to see if he could get on his feet again. instead he bought a overpriced custom truck, booze and drugs. hopefully this guy doesnt screw this opportunity up!

Here Are The Mug Shots Of Cleveland's New "Golden Voiced" Homeless Announcer


http://static.businessinsider.com/image/4d24f054ccd1d5556f0a0000/ted-williams-mug-shot-golden-voice.jpg

Ted Williams, the homeless announcer who has been given job offers by the Cleveland Cavaliers and NFL Films, has not been shy about the drug and alcohol problems that left him on the street.
But it also didn't take long for The Smoking Gun to dig up his rap sheet, including trespassing charges from just last summer.
A Columbus, OH, businessman is a little peeved at all the attention being lavished on Williams, since he knows the honey voiced DJ as an "ongoing problem" who annoys customers, curses at employees, and steals from cars in the parking lot of a nearby Lowe's.
"Hes basically been a thief for the past two years, the unidentified man said.

it was stuck at 5.3 for hours, I don't think it updates with every play


uhhhh woops

Seems like a legit dude, I'd hire him to watch my future kids.

they need to get a film crew on his life for a reality show, see if he turns his life around or screws it up

It would be nice if he took his talent to Chicago and became the play by play announcer for the Bulls instead of the guy we have.

Lettuce be reality, the only reason anyone is giving a damn about this homeless thief/former drug addict is because of his voice. Why should he be any different then the 3.5 million homeless people in this country. Perhaps organizations should be more willing to supply other afflicted people with jobs and mortgage payments. Just sayin'
