A Twist on the Susan Boyle Story

Another good reminder not to judge someone by their looks.  Great story.

UPDATE:  Reports today indicate Ted’s been offered a job and housing by the Cleveland Cavaliers, and NFL Films is also interested in putting that golden voice to work.

    If that’s what they did to poor Ted Williams’ frozen head, they should be ashamed.

    Great voice, though!

    Right now thousands of unemployed voice over talents are asking themselves “Why didn’t I think of doing that?”

    I heard this on entertainment tonight last night and was impressed once again like those who picked on Susan Boyle because of her looks didn’t really see how talented she was until the end of her performance. This guy has talent too no matter if he was homeless or not.

    I first noticed what great hair he has! He has a great life story to tell. He needs to get a book deal!

    Is it me or does he look and sound a little like Bob Ellsworth?

    This gentlemen was interviewed on one of our local radio shows yesterday. I was absolutely impressed.

    He shared a little about his story and how he came to be homeless. Needless to say, he was hoping to get hired and it’s nice to hear that he has an opportunity now.

    I hope this works out for him. Thanks for sharing this.

    TSA stopped Ted Williams from getting on his flight from Columbus to NYC. No appearance on “The Today Show” on Thursday morning. No visit to 92 year-old Mom in Brooklyn. See, he didn’t have ‘proper ID’, said the TSA. So Ted spent today at the Columbus Courthouse, trying to figure out how to get a copy of his birth certificate. Obviously he did have some form of ID, but the TSA wasn’t satisfied with it. The man has been homeless for four years. OK, America – What are we going to do about this out-of-control phony security dance? These blockheads, however, are typical of our society. Follow the little rule book, and throw common sense out the window. Wrong. No little rule book takes away YOUR OBLIGATION TO THINK FOR YOURSELF. There are times you have to make an exception. That’s “the exception that proves the rule”. It’s like the traffic cop giving the mother of the little girl in a coma in Las Vegas a ‘jaywalking ticket’ – gave it to her right in the hospital. Or the policeman giving a ticket to the Dad who raced to the hospital while his wife’s water broke in the car on the way to the hospital in New Hampshire. RETRAIN EVERYBODY — OR FIRE THEM.

    I truly hope he can stay straight now and the media doesn’t start digging into his past life. I wish him well.
