Olympic Memories: John Biever
'An SI Swimsuit Calendar and I'd probably get the weapon!'

The coveted Sports Illustrated pin.
Note to terrorists: If you plan on disrupting the Athens Olympic Games, bring pins, not bombs.

On the first day, at the Judo venue, I got hit up big-time by the volunteers and security guards at the media entry for SI pins, after I made the mistake of leaving a bag of them in my fanny pack which was going through the x-ray machine at security so I couldn't exactly say I didn't have any with me.

So SI pins to everyone, including the military man with the automatic weapon, who gladly put the weapon down to accept the pin. I half expected him to reach in his pocket and trade me a bullet for it --- an SI Swimsuit Calendar and I'd probably get the weapon!
