This guy is getting crazy offers, apparently the Cavaliers are courting him to be a broadcaster for them along with other offers. He isn't gonna be homeless for long.

Ted Williams Reunites with Mother for First Time in 20 Years (Man with the golden voice)

When I learned that he hadn't seen his mom in twenty years, I couldn't watch this with dry eyes.

Now when he gets reunited with his nine kids, that's a video I want to see.

Odd story, it's been all over the place the past few days.

It's even hit the sports stations, thanks to the Cavs angle.  I think the appeal to the article is that so many people are close to the edge of 'nothing' right now, and this guy has gotten the break that the rest of us can only dream of.
