Yes, I’m qualified to write a column.  My full name is Mike
Lopiparo and I produced sports for 17-years at 1010 WINS Radio.  You

a rolled-up sock.  Of course I miss Barry Bonds.   Was he taking
steroids??? Probably.  Was he NOT a nice guy??  Probably.   But did he
hold up the Giants for more than a decade??  Definitely!!!!!. Continue reading »
