So... I'm sure most of you have heard about the homeless guy with the amazing radio voice. If not, here's the original video that was making the rounds yesterday:



Well... since then, he's been receiving offers non-stop for jobs, including from the Cleveland Cavaliers. Here's an interview with The Early Show that made me cry...



The internet is awesome.

Not to piss in this guy's Cheerio's, but I had some reservations here with the stories of him abandoning his family PLUS leaving his wife with a love child to raise he had from an affair (not exactly a heart-warming story), and then news broke last night of him being detained after an argument with his daughter at an LA hotel.

Today, he's entering rehab: http://www.ktla.com/news/landing/ktla-t ... 5923.story

Sometimes I think we want stories to be more feel-good than they are. Aside from having a really cool voice, I haven't read much to believe this story is going to end well.

And here's the proverbial "other shoe dropping":

"Although Williams had claimed that he was sober for more than two years, he admitted to Dr. Phil that was not the case. He he has been drinking daily."

They both could hit .400.

One was on a breathalyzer but still.
