I noticed this posted to the door of the Kiefer store. In case other people have overlooked it, Beard will be in downtown Chicago on April 13th (lunchtime).

Dan Christian and I went for the autograph signing. It was nice to meet her, abeit rather uneventful. Dan asked her if it was annoying to be asked about the Teddy bear all the time.

A friend and I went. She was great. We made it through the line twice. She talked to us about how much she respects masters swimmers for finding the time to swim and not just sitting at home watching tv and she said she'd like to swim masters. Also, she gave me some breaststroke tips ... watch out!

What did she say to the question about the bear?
