I choose me
On 90210, poor Kelly Taylor couldn't choose between Dillon and Brandon, so she rejected both of them, saying her famous line, "I choose me." Following a ditzy blonde's lead, A-Rod has decided not to play for the country of his birth or the country of his heritage. A-Rod's taking some criticism for this, but I can see how it must have been a difficult decision.
Now I'm reminded of a much more important issue: the abundance of beautiful girls named Kelly in 90's television. There was Kelly Bundy, Kelly Kapowski, and Kelly Taylor. Not to mention, there was their 80's predecessor Kelly Gaines Boyd who inspired Woody Boyd's great song, "Kelly, Kelly, Kelly..."
What does this all mean? Have a generation of men gotten in trouble for accidentally yelling "Kelly," instead of the name of their girlfriends? Have plain looking girls named Kelly needed therapy? And what was Hollywood's inspiration to name beautiful women, "Kelly?" Kelly Tripucka?
