I have never actually seen Sixteen Candles or The Notebook, but my girlfriend tells me they are a sort of holy writ for college football fans. Is she lying?
Am I lying? Of course I have seen The Notebook. And I agree it was handed down directly to Ryan Gosling by God of College Football and Thunder, hear his cry.
As far as Sixteen Candles goes, I have not seen it but am willing to buy that it is the older testament of the two, starring John Cusack as Cam Newton, don't ya think?
Go watch both before watching No. 4 LSU take on No. 3 Oregon this Saturday at 8 p.m. ET. You might learn a thing or two. About drama and about doing nice things for your girlfriend like watching The Notebook with her. I watched it by myself.
