Run, Knobby, Run!

Congress wants him. He could be anywhere. From today's Times

A committee statement also said that as of Thursday afternoon, Chuck Knoblauch had not been found by the United States Marshals Service to be served with a subpoena. Knoblauch, Pettitte and Clemens had McNamee as a trainer. McNamee told Mitchell he injected them with performance-enhancing drugs.


This could be Knobby's greatest legacy.

He can pull an Abbie Hoffman, eluding Big John Law for years, now and then granting interviews to selected media. He'll become Che' Knoblauch, a symbol of growth hormone rights, the man who refused to turn his butt in to the brownshirts of the totalitarian state. Noam Chomsky will cite him. Keith Olbermann will forgive him for beaning Keith's mom behind first base. He will be the Yankee That Got Away.

Knobby's on the lam. Hide him.

They may get him, but they'll never get him alive.

Viva El Knobby, Viva la HGH, Viva!
