Yup, You're Old: Both Topanga And Rider Strong Are Getting Married This Weekend

Should I call her Danielle Fishel and not Topanga? Is she really ever allowed to be anything other than Topanga in our minds? The lovely Topanga, she of the hourglass figure and impossible hair, she who made your Hypercolor shirts go all pink and your Body Glove bike shorts extra tight, is getting married this weekend. To this fellow. I guess Topanga is half of a golfing/tennis/country club couple now? Alas.


Also getting married this weekend is Boy Meets World’s Rider Strong. Why does he get referred to by his real name and not his character name? Well because his parents had the foresight to name him f*cking Rider Strong, that’s why. Strong is less of the country club type, and more of the Portlandia Instagram type. Here he is with his intended.

Where did I get the hipster label? Ohhhhh, get a load of his wedding plan:

We’re tying the knot at a summer camp in Oregon. Bad news: Danielle Fishel’s getting married this same weekend, so I’m missing some of my Boy Meets World family (that was my fault, she chose the date first). On the bright side, after I mentioned my new favorite band, Typhoon, on Twitter, they offered to come play at our wedding! So grateful. It’s going to be a camp-themed weekend with everyone sleeping in bunks, a ropes course, games, a talent show…let’s hope it doesn’t rain too much.
I mean that’s a little more Salute Your Shorts than Boy Meets World, but who are we to quibble? If Fishel booked first and most of the Boy Meets World cast are heading to her ceremony than that means she has the best bet of landing Mr. Feeny as an officiate. Sorry, ropes course, Feeny trumps all.

    No tea, no shade, but Rider Strong is a serious-ass porn name.

    Also, who knew? Once Topanga got all that hair out of her face...

  • Maya

    Funny - I'd never heard of either of these people until now, so to me this headline is more like "Yup, you're young."

  • Danar the Barbarian

    ... Ditto, but to me, this headline reads, "Yup, you're old."

  • Rebecca Hachmyer

    The 14 year old girl in me just died a teen tiny bit. Oh, Ryder, there is a part of my heart that will always belong to you.

  • APOCooter

    I feel less old than I do behind. This is pretty much just another friend in my Facebook feed getting married and/or having kids. Every time I see it I just want to shake them and be like, "SLOW DOWN! Jesus, we're not old yet!"

    And then I realize I'm almost 30.

  • Bodhi

    Next up, everyone will start procreating & your news feed will be full of baby pictures & updates on feeding & pooping

  • It'll only get worse from here on out, trust me. Wait until you start getting wedding invitations from your friend's little sisters and that cousin you could have sworn was 13 like, three weeks ago.

  • michaelceratops

    I read this as Danielle Fishel and Rider Strong were getting married to EACH OTHER and I was thinking "HOLD THE PHONE!!"

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    I'd allow it.
