Ted Williams Homeless Man with Golden Voice T Shirt

by on January 9, 2011

Ted Williams, not the old Red Sox player with his head frozen in a cryogenic crypt, but the homeless dude with the golden, cheesy radio voice, has turned into a viral sensation. Obviously. I mean he now has a shirt on Donkey Tees, which is pretty much the sign that you have hit red on the buzz meter.

Anyway, looks like he has a ton of job offers, including something from the Cleveland Cavaliers. It’s a really cool story and I’m happy for a guy who’s trying to get his life back together after throwing it away with drugs and alcohol.

Here’s a clip of him pan handling on a median in Ohio somewhere. The words on this Ted Williams Homeless Man with Golden Voice T Shirt are the same as he has on his sign.

Of course, now the dirty laundry is starting to appear as Mr. Williams has a pretty nice array of mugshots with shaved head, poofy hair and everything in between. Look, you’re not going to offer a job to a guy begging on a median without knowing there is some risk involved. Of course, the dude has had run ins with the law…he freely admits he let his life go down the toilet with drugs and alcohol. You just get the vibe that at 53-years-old he’s looking to get back on track, so you offer him the job, get all the great publicity, and, of course, you get the voice, which does seem to be exactly what a lot of media looks for.

Here’s what the sign says: “I have a God given gift of voice, I’m an ex-radio announcer who has fallen on hard times. Please any help with be gratefully appreciated. Thank you and God bless you. Happy Holidays.”
