T. GAMBLE: Gamble on name change benefits

OPINION: Who knew free gifts came with a name?

I recently read where famous movie actor Matthew McConaughey’s older brother received a free year’s supply of Miller Lite beer. He received this gift because he named his son Miller Lyte. His son is now 9 years old and the name just came to the attention of Miller, resulting in the gift.

T. GAMBLE: Did I mention the giant scoreboard?

OPINION: The football season is looking gloomy for alma mater Auburn

I promise I didn’t mean it when Auburn won the Football National Championship, after waiting 53 years, and I said, “I don’t care if we go 3 and 9 every year the rest of my life. I have my National Title.” I was kidding, God.

OPINION: In America, each day is now special

A day that’s not special would be a special day these days.

T. GAMBLE: Global warming made me do it

OPINION: Nothing bad happens that can’t be explained away by climate change

If my planned movie about a south Georgian family coping with a family member’s pursuit of a sex-change operation fails, it won’t be because of a bad script, lousy acting, botched directing or poor cinematography.

T. GAMBLE: Here's a High Life to a long life

OPINION: Three beers and a shot every day? I'll drink to that

T. GAMBLE: Some pig's hogging all the ice cream

OPINION: Pot-bellied pig struggles with dog days and ramps

Some Pig lived his first year in my backyard with access to the sun porch when too hot or too cold. But, alas, the good times came to an end, precipitated mainly by the fact he weighs about 250 pounds. Whoever first coined the phrase “greedy as a pig” sure knew what he was talking about.

T. GAMBLE: When the time is right to hop away

OPINION: Jim the Toad had been with us for almost two years

For some time, I impressed upon the Hurricane the need to set Jim free. You know, let him live in the wild the way God intended for a toad to live. Not to mention I was darn tired of going to the feed store every three days so that Jim the toad could make the Guinness Book of World’s Records as the fattest reptile ever.
