Ballard! The Musical by Don Macrae
Harold Ballard is back! The wild, cynical curmudgeon, blamed almost universally for the ruination of the Toronto Maple Leafs, has returned. He may have been the most hated man ever to disgrace Toronto's athletic scene, but he was also the most entertaining. And now, the most outrageous episodes in the life of this ruthless sports entrepreneur have been put to music. Here is the unmufflered, musical account of the life and times of the most eccentric, flamboyant and controversial figure the sporting world has ever known. Here is the unauthorized, discordant tell-all of the man who fought it out with his players, his family, sportswriters, broadcasters, the Soviets and anyone else he thought might want to lock horns with him. You'll laugh, you'll cry, and you'll sing along as the stage is transformed into a circus of dissonance with the off-key spectacle that was Harold Ballard.
