Columbus Ohio Homeless Man Signs with Cleveland Cavaliers

Now this is a crazy story. The homeless man in the video above, dubbed the “man with the golden voice,” has become an internet sensation over the last couple of days after a Ohio news station covered him. Shortly thereafter, the Cleveland Cavaliers swooped in and offered the man a job as well as a house. Maybe I should have tried the “homeless man” tactic during the course of my job search.

Regardless, you’ve got to admit that this guy has a great voice. I’m all for these feel-good sort of stories, but you’ve also got to admit that:

1) You know the Cavs have got some extra cash kicking around, with Lebron taking his talents to South Beach and all.

2) Cavs owner Dan Gilbert probably still has to do some winning of the hearts and minds of Cleveland fans. Despite his ridiculous letter following Lebron’s departure and his promises of a championship before Lebron ever gets one, the Cavs are in the midst of a dismal season and Lebron is tearing it up.

This is one Cav that I’ll be rooting for, at least.

    i heard on the radio this morning that as of 2008 he was working.. even heard an ad for a news party he did.. Now that doesnt mean he couldnt have gotten the one job, spent all the money on drugs and remained homeless. but its an interesting twist to know he did infact have some sort of income and was able to get work not too long ago.

    great voice though, i want him to announce my every move.

    Three years from now hes gonna have a-hole press conference to announce he is teaming with michael buffer and gus johnson and taking his talents to monday night football, everyone will hate him.

    Well the ohio st president I believe stated that tcu would not last in the big ten because they play the little sisters of the poor every week. After tcu beat wisconsin, who was the big ten champion over ohio st, they purchased billboards congratulating them on winning the rose bowl signed by the little sisters of the poor. Oh the big ten won one bowl game against teams not in the big ten and many of them were not close
