Everything’s Comin’ Up Hobo!

Ted Williams, the homeless man with the incredible golden voice, appeared on the CBS “Early Show” this morning, and this interview (video below) is so touching that it very nearly melted the ice surrounding my withered black heart. Yes, not only has Williams gotten a job offer and a house from the Cleveland Cavaliers (NFL Films is also said to be interested), he’s also supposed to fly to New York today to be reunited with his 92-year-old mother in his native Brooklyn. In the video, Williams fights back tears of joy as he talks about how he feared his mother would die before he turned his life around.

I was trying to figure out why I enjoyed this video so much, and then it hit me: it’s basically the exact opposite of every reality TV show.
