A little ditty ’bout Sam and Diane

If you watched any early episode of Cheers, you had to wonder why those two were dating. As a Wikipedia contributor notes:

Though bright and witty, Diane Chambers was also often pretentious, snobbish and woefully lacking in street-smarts.

And what would a down-to-earth guy like Sam Malone want with someone like that? If you have to ask, you’ve probably never been a guy:

Shelley Long

I once saw Shelley Long at the Sherman Oaks Galleria. I think. I can’t be sure. I was too busy turning away to make sure I wasn’t staring. Which tells you far more about me than it does about Shelley Long, but such is life.

    Back in 1990, I was startled to see Brooke Shields standing next to me in a ski shop in Beaver Creek, Colorado. Man, she’s tall!
    And so were her bodyguards.

    It’s a nice pic of her. I never thought her hairstyle was very flattering for her. But you men aren’t looking at her hair, I know.

    Yes … some classic “Night Shift”, maybe? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RGTa4bKyFac

    She does funny, sweet, and sexy as well as anybody.
