Mt. Rushmore: First Crushes

With the TV Theme Madness in full swing, an interesting argument arose. Who was the ultimate first crush?

Well, we are here to settle it. So let’s have the list.

Winnie Cooper

Oh yes, Winnie. The classic. Winnie may have been the best because she hooked up with Kevin Arnold, which gave us all hope. Since Kevin was the kind of guy that narrated his own life, we felt like if he could hit that, we could hit that.

Topanga Lawrence

Also from the Kevin Arnold approach, Corey Matthews had NO business being with the lovely Topanga. The show also perfectly framed her development from weird girl to normal girl to hot girl.

DJ Tanner

Looking back, she may not have been the end all be all of girls that we remember. But at the time, there wasn’t a guy in 3rd grade that didn’t swoon over the older DJ. She doesn’t have the “dating a dork” syndrome like Winnie and Topanga, but Steve was a pretty cool guy. He was the voice of Aladdin, which was the only Disney movie boys were allowed to like. In fact, Full House may have been responsible for our first regular crush and our first man-crush. (Our current man-crush is Mike Tomlin. Not sure when that will end.)

Alicia “Al” Lambert

Impossible to find a good picture from this show.

Yes, there was a spirited debate over whether or not to include Al in the list. But the fact that she’s in the Bud Light commercial with the ax and chainsaw guys put her over the edge.

She may have been a tomboy at first, but no writer could keep her down. We could all see the awesomeness underneath, even if she went by “Al”.


There was much consideration for Alex Mack. Since Google Images is already up, we might as well include a picture.

We have no idea what the hell is going on here.

She also hooked up with a dork in 10 Things I Hate About You. And who among us has never yelled, “And he’s back in the game!”

    Alex Mack beats out Winnie for the sole reason that Alex Mack was our age and thus seemed “attainable”.

    And no, I have never yelled “And he’s back in the game”. I was never out of the game. Ever.

  2. C Gally Says:

    No one that has ever yelled that has ever gotten back in the game.

    And if by “never being out of the game” you meant “found a girl that is willing to put up with my shit”, I can believe that.

  3. The D-i-P Says:

    Def Topanga. I was Corey Matthews growing up. Philly kid. I had most of his same pennants in his room and I even remember having his bedspread.

  4. Maniak Says:

    I don’t even know what “i’m in the game” refers to. Must be some sort of hippie bullshit.

    I concur. Alex Mack is the winner of this shindig. Close second being Topanga, but hot Topanga, after she grew boobs.

    Anyone remember the first time someone in your class had boobs? It was fantastic. She instantly became 10x hotter. And she kicked me in the shins. Does that mean she liked me?

    crap. Time to go stalk on facebook…

  5. The Northerner Says:

    You’re damn right that’s what it means. That’s why she has a ring on her finger. Those types of girls are hard to come by.

  6. The Northerner Says:

    The D-i-P: did you have the Jew-fro like him, too?

    Maniak: No it didn’t mean she liked you. It meant “stop staring at my boobs, perv”

  7. C Gally Says:

    Dip: I hate you and everything that Philly stands for other than the Fresh Prince and Boyz II Men.

    Maniak: Do you remember the first time YOU had boobs?

    The N: Touche.
