This guy is all over the news and internet. Ted Williams (not the late baseball legend) was homeless and destitute until a video on YouTube of him doing his radio announcer voice for a handout caught fire, and now he’s famous. The world loves a redemption story, but it’s more likely this will end badly… addiction and self-destructive behavior is not something you are able to cast away no matter how much good fortune suddenly comes your way. In fact, it’s usually the slow crawl back from “hitting bottom” that ends up sticking and the sudden miraculous break ends up getting squandered. He says he’s been clean for 2 years so maybe he’s really hit bottom and is on his way up, and this miraculous break will be his reward. I hope it all works out for him.
