Ah, childhood celebrity crushes: Those formative Tiger Beat guys and gals who helped to develop your superior tastes in men and women today. God love them. In fact, if it weren’t for New Kids on the Block and a personal resemblance to Jordan Knight (yeah: I rocked the pompadour, right along with stripes shaved into the side of my head and parachute pants), I probably never would’ve gotten a date in high school.

Today’s comment diversion, as suggested by Todd, asks you to look back 10, 15, 25 years to the pinups and posters that adorned your bedroom walls growing up: Whose face do you remember being the last you saw before closing your eyes and entering a sexual fantasy land full of “21 Jump Street” characters and Kelly Bundy?

I’ll get it started, and I suspect there are a lot of heterosexual men born in the mid-70s who share similar childhood crushes:

1) Alyssa Milano (you’ll always be my first love, Alyssa)

2) Phoebe Cates (how I loved Private School and horseback riding)

3) Nicole Eggert (who else was dying for a Jamie Powell spin-off of “Charles in Charge”)

4) Kelly LeBrock (I nearly broke my VCR remote freeze-framing the split-second shot of her ass in Woman in Red)

5) Samantha Fox (Lifesize poster? Guilty.)
