The Heidelberg area is home to a few famous people. For one, Chaka Kahn lives here. Tennis star Boris Becker is from the area as well. But the two most famous residents are tennis uber-couple Steffi Graf and Andre Agassi. They have a house in Neunheim, right across the river from where I live.
As you may recall, my new favorite hobby lately is hiking up and down the mountain across the river. This past weekend I was on my down the mountain and I noticed a woman running up the hill in black spandex. As soon as I noticed her my first thought was "Damn, she looks exactly like Steffi Graf", followed closely by my second thought, "Wait, she lives right at the bottom of the hill! It IS Steffi Graf!". I tried to play it cool and didn't ogle her as she ran by but she made eye contact, gave me a smile and said something in German that I can only guess was hello. I smiled back and said hello and then immediately looked around to see if Andre was behind her but no such luck.
Steffi Graf said hello to me. Awesome.
