Homeless Man Offered A Job By the Cleveland Cavs

I’m a bit late on this but this is a brief interview with a man claiming to have a God-given voice for radio and it’s not just a claim … it’s a FACT. His name is Ted Williams, he is currently homeless. Here he explains his life story briefly in just under a minute.

The video on YouTube has garnered over 4 million views in just over 24 hours. Talk about viral! Amazing!

Since the video made its way around the world, I’m happy to report that Ted has received an offer of not just a full-time job but also a mortgage on a home by the Cleveland Cavaliers. The story is below:

Ted Williams, a homeless man who is the subject of viral video that has captivated the internet at large, has been offered a full-time job and a mortgage on a home by Quicken Loans Arena and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

A woman named Tracy, representing Quicken Loans and the Cavaliers, called WNCI 97.9 on Wednesday morning and made the offer. CNBC’s Darren Rovell confirmed the authenticity of the offer on Twitter. Williams was inundated with offers throughout his appearance, so there is no word whether the offer has been accepted or signed at this point.

Williams story became a viral sensation on Tuesday with the original YouTube clip reaching more than four million views in 24 hours. He was found by a Columbus Dispatch reporter on the side of the road, using his incredible voice to collect money on the street. You can watch the original clip here.

The Cavaliers and Quicken Loans Arena are offering voiceover work in radio and television along with a new website launch that will require voiceover work from Williams.

The Cavaliers offer does not figure to be the last one that Williams receives. According to Rovell on Twitter, NFL Films is looking to contact the man dubbed the “Homeless D.J.” about work. Williams is also sorting through numerous opportunities for other appearance on national TV and radio, which could result in further offers in the days to come. [Source]

I can only imagine if this all works out a movie on this mans’ life will soon follow. I love GOOD news like this. It lifts my spirits and reiterates that there are still good and deserving people in this world. God bless him.

Mike Tyson’s Daughter, Exodus Dies In Tragic Accident

26 May 2009 at 2:05 pm (Celebrity, News, Sports) (, , , , , )

!!! UPDATE !!!   @ 7pm

Exodus Tyson’s 7-year-old brother found her Monday with her neck in a cord dangling from the exercise machine, police Sgt. Andy Hill said, calling it a “tragic accident.”

The mother sent the boy to find his little sister, who was playing in a separate room. That’s when he saw her in distress and got his mother, police said.

“Somehow she was playing on this treadmill, and there’s a cord that hangs under the console — it’s kind of a loop,” Hill said. “Either she slipped or put her head in the loop, but it acted like a noose, and she was obviously unable to get herself off of it.”

The girl’s mother took her daughter out of the cable, called 911 and attempted to revive her.

Responding officers and firefighters performed CPR on the little girl. She was rushed to nearby St. Joe’s Hospital after she was found around 10:30 a.m. local time, MyFOXPhoenix.com reported.

Hill said former heavyweight champion Tyson, 42, had been in Las Vegas but flew to Phoenix immediately after learning of the accident.

So VERY tragic and sad. Poor baby girl. My thoughts and prayers are with Mike and his family. I know this has GOT to be a difficult time for them

Some very sad news to report. According to a report published by Palluxo, Mike Tyson’s 4 year old daughter, Exodus Tyson, who was admitted to Hospital yesterday, has passed away.

An employee of St. Joseph’s Hospital who wished to remain anonymous, told the publication that Tyson’s daughter died shortly after Midnight, Tuesday Morning.

According to the report by Pallaxo, the Doctors at St. Joseph’s Hospital attempted to resuscitate, but after 10 minutes the child was declared dead.

Earlier reports stated that on Monday Exodus was playing on a treadmill when she got tangled in a cord that was attached to the console. She was found by her brother unconscious. The child’s mother called emergency services and attempted CPR before Exodus was rushed to the hospital. She was put on life support and fell into a deep coma.

Tyson who was in Las Vegas at the time of the tragic accident, rushed by plane to get to Phoenix to be with his daughter.

OJ Found Guilty

4 October 2008 at 10:36 am (News, Rants, Sports) (, , , , , )


Story Here

uh, derr, it wasnt me, folks!

uh, derr, it wasn't me, folks!

You know, I’m glad this man is guilty. He literally  got away with murder all those years ago and he fucked up again by being a dumb ass. He’s just really, really stupid. What did he think? He’d get away with this, too?

If that’s what he thought then he is the SUPREME definition of a man that thinks he’s above the law.

For those unfamiliar with the case, it was alleged that OJ and others burst into the Las Vegas hotel room of two sports memorabilia dealers  to “retrieve” personal items that OJ says belonged to him. However, they were armed. OJ and the others with him were charged with armed robbery (go figure) and later found guilty of all 12 counts.

OJ is really dumb. I can’t stress this enough. There are ways to go about things and the man lacks this common sense. After the trial of the century, where you know good and well you got away with the murder of the mother of your children and her boyfriend, you then want to go rob someone with arms? Where was he born? On the planet of “i don’t have a fucking clue?”

I’m glad he was found guilty. There is no love lost between OJ and I. All these people saying, “the white man got their justice” or “the white man won!” … how about the PEOPLE got their justice? How about the black idiot lost? I mean, damn, people. It’s no longer about race. It’s about intelligence and intellect and the lack thereof. This man needs a brain transplant or something.
