Asked by coffeenut (6171points) January 13th, 2011

I’m not referring to the baseball player…I mean the Previous radio voice with a alcohol/drug problem who left his wife and 9 kids and ended up homeless…. Here

After a random you-tube video this guy got the second chance of a lifetime handed to him on a golden platter was given a house, job offers, T.V and radio coverage… and is now a “media sensation”...... Really?

Can he change his ways and embrace this golden opportunity….
What do you think?

I think he’s fully capable of changing his ways, if he hasn’t already.

great things happen when they are meant to happen, not before.

I have talked to the man. I have to drive by the corner where he stood every day on my way to work. I think it is a blessing that Doral Chenoweth took the time to actually talk to him and find out more about the man himself. I think this is a great deal to dump on a person with potentially limited coping skills. I think his going to rehab is a terrific idea as he actually has the possibility to make a difference in his own life. His family may be thrilled with the attention he is now getting but he stayed away from them for a reason.

Interesting question. The nation first embraced him as the latest YouTube overnight celebrity. His rise from the gutter back to former fame was a perfect Cinderella fairytale. Now the nation must come to grips with the fact he’s a living breathing human being who has faults aplenty to go along with his gift of a silver tongue. It will be interesting to see if he is yet mature enough to handle it—and if we as a natin are.

He needs help. No one ends up as he did without some serious issues. Fame and some VOs jobs aren’t going to solve those issues overnight.

Props to him, hopefully he sticks to his new found life, otherwise meh, here’s a 5.

Let’s hope he finds some AA meetings and really wants to stop. Because you can lead a horse to water but he has to want to drink (the water that is.)
