" My Dad, Phil Ranallo a Buffalo Courier Express Sports Columnist, introduced me to Jimmy over 50 years ago.
He said to me that day, "Jimmy Breslin will be a print "super star" and boy was my dad right. My dad, like Jimmy, was an award WINNER! May Jimmy rest in peace. We loved him. John Ranallo"

"As a young aspiring writer, I had the good fortune of meeting Mr Breslin in the early 70's in the Lion's Head in Greenwich Village, with Pete Hamill and others...I would sit at the bar and listen to their outrageous stories...I was enthralled...I wanted to be him...he and that group were the last really great journalists. Condolences to them and that family.."
