AT LEAST Jason Turner didn't get cheated out of a medal. The 33-year-old from Rochester, N.Y., finished fourth in the 10-meter air pistol but got bumped up to third when winner Kim Jong Su of North Korea was stripped of his bronze for testing positive for a banned substance. Yet Turner did miss out on what might have been a once-in-a-lifetime experience: standing on the podium and receiving his medal. (The USOC presented him with his bronze in a makeshift ceremony a week later.) So I think Kim should have to give his medal back just as publicly as he received it. Hold a special de-medaling ceremony for him. For good measure, as an official takes the medal from around Kim's neck, they should play the North Korean anthem. Backwards.
He Says No to New Jersey
PACKERS FANS who haven't gotten over Brett Favre need to follow the lead of David Witthoft, the 12-year-old Connecticut kid who famously wore the same Favre jersey for four years. He told me that even though Favre is now playing in his backyard, he doesn't want a Jets number 4 jersey: "I'm a Packers fan, but not just because of Favre," said the Cal Ripken of jersey-wearing. He's moved on. Brett's moved on. Time for other cheeseheads to follow suit.
THE FINE PRINT: The U.S. beat the world's No. 1 team, Croatia, in water polo. To give you an idea what a galactic upset this is, you would have to move to Croatia.
