A must read for all sports enthusiasts. Gallagher personifies a cross between a rock star and a sportscasting legend.
Michael Wekerle, venture capitalist and dragon investor on Canada’s Dragons’ Den
I can honestly say after reading John Gallagher?'s book that I am greatly surprised he actually lived to write it. So many stories, so many people, and wonderful photographs to document it all. But I can't believe he turned down a chance to go to the Playboy Mansion. That proves he’s crazy. This is sex, drugs, and rock ‘n roll. Wow, what a life!
Perry Lefko, author and award-winning columnist
‘And then, zany antics ensued.’ That cliché was written about John Gallagher. Read Big League Babble On. It's all here.

I don't know any prize fighter who retired as the undefeated golden gloves boxing champion anywhere, anytime, and like me, got to ‘dance’ with Ali. I love this kid.
George Chuvalo, five-time Canadian heavyweight champion
John has been able to vibrantly reflect his roots in Quebec, his Maritime maturation, and his Hogtown polish. Gallagher can be … an obnoxious fool and a great friend all in one paragraph.
Bill Watters, former assistant general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs
It's not a trip to the great White North without banging back a couple of Stolis with my good friend John Gallagher. A Habs fan who loves to bust Boston Bruins fans' balls.
Phil Esposito, former NHL player and coach, and member of the Hockey Hall of Fame
A riveting read, brimming with chuckles.
