Well, there was absolutely no way I could resist doing this blogfest. Thanks to Emily, Sarah and Vic for hosting it. I was that teenage girl who had a crush on EVERYONE, so restricting this list to just seven is going to be incredibly difficult. But here goes:
Oh, yeah, this was who my teenage heart beat for. I must have had five or six different posters on my walls, including one that was signed to a friend who gave it to me when she found out how much I liked them. I nearly wore out their CD, and I'm fairly confident everyone in my family knows all the words to it. I saw every video (including the really, really bad movie) and all the songs that weren't released because they never had a second CD. And, yeah, I may have cried a little when they broke up.
P.S. My favorites were Matt and Jesse.
I've actually been watching Boy Meets World again recently because I apparently don't remember any of the episodes, and I still remember the way my girlish heart fluttered over Sean. I usually wasn't into the "bad boys," but Sean had the heart of gold to go with it. Plus the leather jacket. I did like the leather jacket.
Now, I will admit that my crush on Rupert probably had more to do with my crush on Ron Weasley than anything else, but there was still something about the awkward redhead who was loyal beyond all measure. Also, there's a strong possibility I just like redheads.
Now, I've never played real hockey, but I always wanted to be a Duck. My brother and I used to play in our upstairs hallway with socks, then outside once we got older with a baseball mitt for the goalie. And I was always Charlie, because Charlie was the best of all the characters. He wasn't the best player, but he came through when they needed him, and later he proved that he was also willing to make sacrifices for the good of the team (I'm starting to see a pattern with my choices).
While girls in my middle school fought over Nick, I was far more interested in the younger Carter brother (not that I WASN'T into Nick, of course). He was carefree, he could do crazy gymnastics, and his music was fun and happy.
I must have watched Now & Then a dozen times growing up (and Casper a fair few as well), and I still got that warm, fuzzy feeling every time Scott and Roberta kissed after playing basketball. I think that was probably my first introduction into the wide world of on-screen romance, and the first time I realized I really like on-screen romance. ^-^
I almost went with an older picture of him here because he's very little in this. But I was very little when I had a crush on him (this may have been the pre-teen years really), so it was okay at the time. He's actually older than me, so I don't feel bad about this. But, again, while all the girls swooned over his older brother, I was deeply in love with the youngest Hanson... for no real reason that I can think of. Looking back, I can't remember what I found attractive, but apparently it was enough to make me buy the CD and the book about their life story.
