In a small coda to the Beyonce story, last night I had another celebrity moment.  We were having a casual Mother's Day dinner at Francesca's on Taylor when Chicago Bears tight end Greg Olsen was seated at the table next to us.

Unlike Beyonce, the former first-round draft pick didn't have security with him; not only can he fly under the radar, but the guy is 6'5" and built like a tank.  He and his party were attired in Chicago Blackhawks regalia, as were other diners in the restaurant, as they were all en route to the nearby Hawks-Canucks playoff game.

As they rose to leave, we said a quick hello.  I suggested to Greg that if the game were close, he not be shy about jumping over the boards.
