TICKET STUB TO UT-WYOMING GAME AVAILABLE

I know, you're thinking who on Earth would want a ticket stub from Tennessee's homecoming game against Wyoming, which the Vols lost 13-7? I know because I was there.

Yuck. And that's why I don't want the stub any more. Bad memories.

But just as I was about to pitch the offensive stub into the trash it occurred to me: There might be a Gator or Bulldog out there who would like to have it. Think about it: The game was the first after UT Coach Phil Fulmer announced he isn't returning next season. And it was a game the Vols lost to one of the worst offenses in college football.

That makes this ticket stub a collectible for any Tennessee-hater from the universities of Florida or Georgia. If interested, please contact my assistant at david.crumpler@jacksonville.com.

MOVIE STAR GETS SPIRITUALLY 'GOOPY'

Oprah Winfrey, look out: Actress Gwyneth Paltrow is getting into the make-over-your-entire-life business.

Times-Union readers may recall that I spent all of September 2007 living according to Oprah's amazingly all-inclusive Web site: Oprah.com, whose motto is "Live Your Best Life." We called it Oprah*tology, since it attempts to help a person with everything from fashion to dining to spiritual development.

Well, looks like lovely Gwyneth has headed down the same path with her own Web site/life map, which is called Goop: Nourish the Inner Aspect. Yes, that's GOOP.

Goofy name aside, where do these star types get off anointing themselves as spiritual leaders? And what does it say about Americans? Are we worshiping movie stars nowadays in addition to idolizing them?
