Fitz.... pack your bags!


I have to share this with you all as I think it is the most uplifting and superb story and while it is not directly GSW related, please bear with me as it is basketball related at the end.....

Having come from the UK and then lived in San Francisco for several years, I was truly amazed at the number of homeless who choose to head there and I often wondered about the backgrounds of some and how they came to be in their situation on the streets...

Anyway...someone else, a reporter, thought the same thing and on spotting this homeless guy by the side of the road in Ohio, could not believe his ears.......

Watch...

Homeless man with awesome radio voice- get him a gig! (TED WILLIAMS) (via biiiiirdman)

Now.... the uplifting part...

It seems the Cleveland Cavs have given this guy his 'second chance' and what an incredible voice they will have for their arena! I would swap our GTOE Franko Finn, or whatever his name is, in a heartbeat for this guy to become the Oracle announcer!

As the title says, I think I would even have him sit next to Jim at games on the radio rather than Fitz!

As I said, while not a GSOM/GSW directly related theme, I thought it a superb story and one which gives us all hope that 2011 might just be a bit better than 2010.... Most importantly...congratulations Ted Williams! I think I would even go to a GSW game in Cleveland just to hear this guy... Bravo sir!
