Cavs offer homeless man job, house



You can't always judge a book by its cover, and people don't always sound the way they look.

The latter has seldom been more true than in the case of Ted Williams (no, not that one), a homeless man from Columbus, Ohio, who became an internet sensation after a Columbus Dispatch videographer found him near Interstate 71 holding a sign that read, "I'm an ex-radio announcer who has fallen on hard times.'' (See video above)

Not any longer, apparently.

In the spirit of the holiday season, the Cleveland Cavaliers offered Williams a full-time position doing voiceover work for the team and Quicken Loans, and offered to pay mortgage on a home.
