Former Yankee second baseman Chuck Knoblauch surrendered to authorities in Harris County, Tex., Tuesday after he was charged with assaulting his common-law wife.

Knoblauch - named in the Mitchell Report as a player who used performance-enhancing drugs - took the anti-anxiety medication Xanax and had been drinking heavily Friday night when he hit and choked Stacey Stelmach, according to prosecutors.

Knoblauch was charged with assault of a family member. A change in Texas law that took effect Sept.1 makes it a felony to choke a family member, and the former All-Star faces up to 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine, Harris County Assistant District Attorney Donna Hawkins said. An emergency protective order barring Knoblauch from contacting his wife was also issued.

Knoblauch, 41, was being held in the Harris County Jail in lieu of $10,000 bail.

"The judge wanted him to be processed just like anybody else. We hope to get this resolved as quickly as possible," Knoblauch's attorney, Dan Cogdell, said. "It's a disagreement between he and his wife. They're going through a divorce. It's a rough time for both of them."

Cogdell did not return a call from the Daily News. The Hendricks brothers, Knoblauch's former agents, did not return an e-mail.

Chief prosecutor Kari Allen told State District Judge Hazel Jones that Knoblauch and his wife had been arguing when she tried to take away his car keys. An altercation ensued.

Knoblauch and Stelmach have a 5-year-old son, Jake, who accompanied the 1991 AL Rookie of the Year when he was deposed by congressional investigators before the Feb. 13, 2008 hearing on the Mitchell Report.

Knoblauch told the investigators that he had obtained human growth hormone from former Yankee strength and conditioning coach Brian McNamee. McNamee told former Sen. George Mitchell and his investigators that he had also provided performance-enhancing drugs to Roger Clemens, Andy Pettitte and other players. Clemens is currently under federal investigation for perjury.

A former Gold Glove infielder with the Twins, with whom he played seven seasons, Knoblauch finished his baseball career with the Kansas City Royals seven years ago. Knoblauch's Yankee career was highlighted by his three championship rings and his well-documented fielding hiccups that surfaced in 1999. His off-target throws to first base during the 1999 and 2000 seasons got so bad that then manager Joe Torre eventually used him in the outfield and as a designated hitter for the 2001 season. He retired after the 2002 season and returned to his native Houston.

We all knew that Chuck Knobluach could hit but couldn’t field and now he is out there CHOKING HIS COMMOM LAW WIFE!!  I bet she mentioned the fact he couldn’t throw to first and he was like I WILL THROW YOU DOWN THE STAIRS BITCH.

NHL kick off

I didn’t want to write up a whole NHL preview because fuck it would take too damn long. I didn’t ask Iggles to pitch in because that dude is too busy with his ball busting and fantasy updates. Rio’s basically shut it down. Chiefdude doesn’t actually post anything but pictures and Stylegal is still MIA. I decided I would say a line or 2 about each team (some of the shit I say won’t have anything to do with the upcoming season…ha) and if I think they are play off bound or not. If you don’t like it then skip this article. Alphabetical order seems appropriate.

Anaheim Ducks: I can not take a team serious that is named after a Disney movie. Is Charlie Conway still playing there? Playoffs – YES.

Atlanta Thrashers: If Heatley didn’t kill a guy they would of dominated – Savard, Heatley, Hossa and Kovalchuk. Didn’t work out and now only Kovalchuk is left. Playoffs – NO.

Boston Bruins: It is going to be hard to replace a top sniping goal scorer, in Ke$$el but if Sturm, Wheeler, Kobasow and Bergeron all pick up the slack we may not be overly concerned with Ke$$el gone. Playoffs – YES.

Buffalo Sabres: This is the team Mrs. Booze and her brothers grew up rooting for. Now she loves Lucic and couldn’t name a current Sabre…suck it Ryan Miller. Playoffs – NO.

Calgary Flames: Jerome Iginla ENOUGH SAID. Adding Jay Bouwmeester always helps. Playoffs – Yes.

Carolina Hurricanes: Basically returned the same team as last year and added Aaron Ward. I would like the Bruins to meet them again in the playoffs. Playoffs – YES.

Chicago Blackhawks: It is all or nothing for these guys this year. They will have any decisions to make next off season with their core group of players. Playoffs- YES.

Colorado Avalanche: What a joke this franchise has become. I mean really, I think a few phantom all star teams could beat them. Playoffs – NO.

Columbus Blue Jackets: This team goes as far as Rick Nash and Steve Mason take them. I am not sure it is playoff bound but they will be entertaining. Playoffs – NO.

Dallas Stars: This is my sleeper team this year. If they can carry last years momentum over then hell they can play with anyone. Playoffs – YES.

Detroit Red Wings: They are the Yankees of hockey or are the Yankees the Red wings of baseball? Either way. Playoffs – YES.

Edmonton Oilers: It seems like every 5 or 6 years they go from suck to mediocre. This could be the year they are not too bad. Playoffs – NO.

Florida Panthers: They lost their best player in Jay Bouwmeester is not going to make a shitty team any better. Playoffs – NO.

Los Angeles Kings: I only know Jonathan Quick from their roster and that’s because he went to ZooMass. Playoffs – NO.

Minnesota Wild: I hate all the Koivu’s – Mikko and Saku. Playoffs – NO.

Montreal Canadiens: I am upset that I can’t yell “FUCK YOU HIGGINS” anymore but I am sure Brian Gionta, Hal Gill, Scott Gomez or any other of the new Cuntnadians can fill that void once the season starts. Playoffs – YES.

Nashville Predators: I don’t know how or why Tennessee has a team. Playoffs – NO.

New Jersey Devils: They have their old coach back. The King of the neutral zone trap. Their games will be boring. They have a great goalie. They will win lots of games by 1 goal. YUCKY. Playoffs – YES.

New York Islanders: Seems like every year they are rebuilding. Maybe this team should be folded. I will watch this new kid, John Tavares. Playoffs – NO.

New York Rangers: They made a major over haul of their roster. Lots of new faces with loads of NHL talent. Chris Drury and Henrik Lundqvist anchor a solid team. Playoffs – YES.

Ottawa Senators: Go Sens Go or is it NO SENS NO. They aren’t going anywhere this year. Playoffs- NO

Philadelphia Flyers: Ray Emery – check. Chris Pronger – check. Mike Richard/Jeff Carter – check. This could be an exciting time in Philly or a riot at the arena every night. Either way I am excited for the fire works. Playoffs – YES.

Phoenix Coyotes: A young team that needs Coaching, an owner, a sense of direction, OH and some fans. Playoffs – NO.

Pittsburgh Penguins: Two of the best players in the NHL with Crosby and Malkin. Returning cup champs. Playoffs – YES.

San Jose Sharks: They can only be better with Dany Heatly on a line with Joey T. Playoffs – YES.

St. Louis Blues: Hard working team who really gelled half way through last season. Didn’t go as deep in the playoffs as I thought last year. Playoffs – YES.

Tampa Bay Lightning: Vinny Lacavlier and Marty St. Louis should be able to bring a team to the playoffs. Not this year. Playoffs – NO.

Toronto Maple Leafs: I hope they don’t win 25 games. Playoffs – NO.

Vancouver Canucks: LUONGO, LUONGO, LUONGO and the Sedin twins! Playoffs – YES.

Washington Capitals: Ovechkin + Backstrom + Green = a top 5 team in the NHL. If they could only get an outstanding goalie. Playoffs – YES.

Out of the East - Boston, Carolina, Montreal, New Jersey, NY Rangers, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Washington.

Out of the West - Anaheim, Calgary, Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, St. Louis, San Jose, Vancouver.

The playoffs will be rocking as always and someone always ends up scoring an upset.
I have Boston vs Washington and San Jose vs Calgary with the winners moving on to the Stanley Cup. It is still the day before the season starts and injuries could derail this whole plan.

10 Fall Beers

10 Great Fall Beers

Existing somewhere between the light, refreshing offerings of summer and the richness and heavy spice of winter brews, fall beers provide the perfect seasonal transition. Malts take center stage. Hues get darker, matching the season's withering foliage. And overall flavors get heartier, preparing to hold their own against fall's thick stews, slabs of turkey and decadent wedges of pumpkin pie. Plus they offer a more flavorful alternative to throwing back cans of Budweiser and Coors on football Sundays (not that there's anything wrong with that). So with the help of resident beer expert Tim Ensor at the Brooklyn-based craft beer dealer Bierkraft, I've compiled a list of 10 great fall beers -- from both the US and abroad -- to get you through the coming months.

Most can be found at well-stocked grocery and specialty beer stores - and maybe even your neighborhood pub -- but if you're having trouble finding any, many retailers (Bierkraft included) will ship via mail order. And if you happen to be in the area, stop by the breweries for a guided tour or tasting.

Brooklyn Oktoberfest Beer
Brooklyn Brewery, Brooklyn, N.Y.

I'll kick things off in my home town. Located in a former matzo ball factory in Brooklyn's trendy Williamsburg neighborhood, Brooklyn Brewery has received numerous awards and keg-sized quantities of critical praise. Brewmaster Garrett Oliver consistently concocts some of America's finest beers and his interpretation of the traditional Bavarian Oktoberfest lager is up to his usual standards. With a deep, reddish amber color and plenty of rich malt and caramel flavor, this full-bodied seasonal brew is the perfect way to welcome the cold.

Dogfish Head Punkin Ale
Dogfish Head Brewery, Milton, Del.

With pumpkin ales sometimes less is more—because nothing makes my taste buds shudder like an overly pumpkin-y beer with its own well-stocked spice cabinet. But the seasonal flavors in this offering from Delaware's innovative Dogfish Head Brewery are subtle and well-balanced, with its pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon and allspice evenly paired against mild hoppy bitterness and head-spinning potency (Punkin Ale weighs in at a whopping 7% alcohol by volume!).

Southern Tier Harvest Ale
Southern Tier Brewing Company, Lakewood, N.Y.

Taking advantage of the fall crop, harvest ales are brewed from freshly picked hops, giving them an intense, grassy character. The style is growing in popularity among American beer makers and this young upstate New York brewery produces one of the best. Inspired by the English-style extra special bitter (ESB), its golden straw-like color and potent hoppy zest will satisfy those craving a bit more bite in their fall beer and certainly pays homage to the season's bounty.

Victory Moonglow Weizenbock
Victory Brewing Company, Downingtown, Penn.

Essentially a heartier wheat beer, weizenbocks tend to have complex malt character, minimal hoppy bitterness and a bright fruity quality. And Pennsylvania’s take on this Bavarian fall classic is dead on, partially thanks to Victory’s brewmasters having trained in Germany. Moonglow is dark amber in color with prominent banana and clove—I know this sounds unappetizing, but trust me, it’s good—balanced with a refreshing citrus crispness common to wheat beers. And at 8.7% alcohol by volume, it’s by far the most potent beer to make the list.

Paulaner Oktoberfest-Märzen
Paulaner Brewery, Munich, Germany

In 1810, Crown Prince Ludwig of Bavaria threw a party to commemorate his marriage and thus the first Oktoberfest was born. Decades later in 1872 the Spaten brewery adapted the popular Vienna lager and developed the first Oktoberfest beer, deeming the style Märzen (March) after the month in which it was brewed (though it wasn't tapped until fall). But while Spaten may have founded the Märzen, Paulaner has perfected it: Malts and sweet toffee dominate but prominent hops round out the flavor resulting in a complex, satisfying brew with an essence of Heath Bar. Plus, you can't beat the label, depicting a row of burly German women merrily hoisting beer steins in celebration of fall.

Great Divide Ridgeline Amber/Fresh Hop Pale Ale
Great Divide Brewing Company, Denver

This amber ale from one of America's most decorated microbreweries is smooth and easy to drink but rich enough to hang with fall's hearty dishes. Visually, think rich copper; taste-wise a perfect balance of malt and hops with a subtle nuttiness. If you're looking for something with a paler complexion and a lot more earthiness, Great Divide also has a praise-worthy harvest brew called Fresh Hop Pale Ale. Though fresh harvest brewing requires a far greater quantity of hops, nothing says fall like Fresh Hop's powerful grassy aroma—it's like a newly mowed lawn.

Original Flag Porter
Darwin Brewery, Sunderland, United Kingdom

Appearances aside, trust me when I say you’re not about to glug a jar of straight molasses. This near-black elixir is somewhat lighter than expected and manages a smooth drinkability despite its bold malty taste and lots of coffee and chocolate flavor. Plus it has a great back story—OFP is brewed using yeasts salvaged from a ship that sank in the English Channel in 1825. Several intact beer bottles were found in the wreckage and while according to brewer and microbiologist Dr. Keith Thomas the brew itself tasted like “old, wet boots,” enough live yeast was present to cultivate resulting in this complex, fall-friendly porter.

Smuttynose Pumpkin Ale
Smuttynose Brewing Company, Portsmouth, N.H.

According to brewing lore—and the Smuttynose Web site—early American colonists made beer with local squash in order to “extend their supply of costly imported malt.” This assertively hoppy offering from the Granite State’s premier brewery succeeds in honoring this heritage with a hint of pumpkin layered beneath bold clove and nutmeg. It has a noticeable but appetizing bitterness and stands out as one of the spicier and more natural-tasting pumpkin brews.

Sierra Nevada Harvest Ale
Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, Chico, Calif.

Creators of America’s first harvest ale back in 1996, Sierra Nevada has dropped another hop bomb on the beer world. The result of two 8,000-pound hop harvests, both brewed immediately, this year's ale is aromatic—think grass and pine trees—and has a manageable, complex and forestial bitterness. A touch of malt and caramel provides a subtle candy-like balance. One of the most vibrant and fresh-tasting beers on the market, Sierra’s Harvest brew tastes as if drawn from some unspoiled spring of pristine ale in the mountains of Northern California.

Ayinger Oktober Fest-Märzen
Ayinger Brewery, Aying, Germany

I know, yet another Oktoberfest—can you tell I’m obsessed? This seasonal brew comes to us from the 1,200-year-old village of Aying in Bavaria. The Ayinger brewery uses mostly local ingredients to produce its 12 beers and has been operated by the same family since 1878. Their unique take on the Märzen style is lighter than many of its heavily malted counterparts and has a pleasing bread-like quality with a crisp, refreshing finish. A beer-loving friend of mine recently described it as "Having a Triscuit vibe…but in a good way."

I’m taking a timeout from the fantasy weekly review because I’m really pissed off. I know, I know….I won the week so how can I be pissed off. First of all….if you know me than you know I can always find a reason to be pissed. Here is why….V is coming back and none of you Mo-Fo’s told me. For those of you under the age of 33 or 34 you may not remember V the mini-series which aired in 1983, but it was probably the best mini-series ever made. I’ve been talking about this show for years and always thought they should try and remake the series. Anyway, I’m watching TV last week and saw the commercial for V the Series that airs this November. Most people will look forward to what the show will be like since graphics and special effects are a million times better than in the early 80’s….but not me. I’m just looking forward to seeing the alien/human sex scene. And yes Chrissy, I’m well aware you probably already have some XXX rated bootleg version of the scene, but I’ll just wait for the TV version. Thanks

On to the football…….

Genius…absolute genius. Congratulations Beach Bums, you get The Good Award for week 3. I know what you guys are thinking…how is that possible? Because BUMS is smarter than the rest of us…plain and simple. At first I was completely shocked to see that the bench players for BUMS had not only outscored his starters but they also outscored everyone’s starters. I mean how is that even possible????? But then it dawned on me while walking the dog….BUMS had found a loophole in the scoring system. Where does it say in the rules that your starters are the team of record? Why can’t your bench players be your team of record? Well done BUMS…..well done!

If only I had figured this little trick out in 2007 I wouldn’t have come in last.

FAST WILLIE PARKER dammit! MUST START! Did I not send out a text earlier in the weekend? Seriously people we went through this same crap last year. If I tell you a player is a must start then you start him…end of discussion. What was I last year…13 for 17 on must starts? Somebody look this shit up…I don’t know what the exact numbers were but I know I was on fire with the must starts. With the Celek/Parker combo this week that makes me 3 for 4 this year. Do you bet against 75%? I don’t think so!!!

I’m trying here…I’m really trying. It’s still early and I understand we are all trying to get adjusted to our rosters. But seriously guys…this is a bonafide cluster-fuck we got going on here. Roethlisberger 20 points (MIM), Santana Moss 33 points (MIM), Willie Parker 19 points (MFN), Kevin Walter 10.5 points (Smidawgs), Cotchery 25 points (FELONS), 49ers Defense 14 points (FELONS), Carson Palmer 15 points (WIZARDS), Julius Jones 19.5 points (BUMS), Knowshon Moreno 15 points (BUMS), DeSean Jackson 28 points (BUMS), Vernon Davis 24.5 points (BUMS), Pierre Thomas 29 points (IGGLES). All of these guys were on the bench and cost their teams at least 9 points. This is a looooong list and it’s possible I missed a few…what a mess. Come on people lets start paying attention to who starts and who sits.

“Go 2 the bottom of the page and look @ the league leader all receivers on the bench” Sunday, 3:42pm…STREET PHARMACIST

Man did I love this text. So we are coming towards the end of the 1:00pm games and as we discussed earlier there were a lot of points being left on the bench this week. I can’t remember the last time I saw all the league leaders at one position on the bench this late in the day. But the real reason I loved this text is that PHARMACIST found the league leaders page and took the time to find each of them on their respective teams and confirm they were all benched. I see people logging on and off all day during the games and I always assumed they were just checking in on their own team. I didn’t realize there were other losers out there like myself that check all of the other teams. I guess it’s just nice to know I have some company in Loserville!

Beach Bums
All joking aside…you do realize that if you played the right people you would have had a 178 point week. This is the team to beat people.

Lets be honest here…I’m not the most mentally stable person in this league. And if we took a vote of who goes postal in a shopping mall one day I would fully expect to receive 100% of the vote (yes I would vote for myself). But Smidawgs has got to get an honorable mention here…I’m very concerned that he is gonna blow a gasket one of these days. Every Monday I can count on walking into work and Smidawgs gives me the ‘we gotta talk’ look, I reluctantly go ahead and start a conversation but in the back of my mind I’m thinking this could be it for me. And 95% percent of the time he’s not even pissed at me but I’m still a little scared.

It’s OK Smidawgs…I love your energy but this is just fantasy football…you are starting to scare people.

Franklins Felons
Just between you and me FELONS….you gotta be a little disappointed in the Fitzy/Johnson WR combo. You know I’m a Johnson fan and I’m deep at the RB position. Call me kid…you make the right offer I may even pay the transaction fee.

I just want to make sure I have this straight. I drafted Donald Driver last year figuring a young inexperienced QB (Rodgers) would need a veteran WR to be his safety blanket. So what happens? Yep…Rodgers throws to Jennings all year long. So this year I draft Jennings and this bastard Rodgers is now throwing to Driver all game long. Green Bay is about to go on my NO DRAFT LIST!

Madd Fucking Niggerish
FAST WILLIE PARKER.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Most Interesting Men
Killin’ me….you’re absolutely killin’ me. I sing MIM’s praises last week calling them the team to beat, and this is why I picked them to win this year….blah, blah, blah. And this is how you repay me…..58.5 points. 58.5 freaking points!!!!!! Incredible. Somebody please tell me that these jackasses aren’t going to get paid for low week.

Terrell Owens=Team Wrecker. Sflabo is just the latest team that Owens (0 points) has ruined in his storied career. Don’t worry FLABO…you’re not the first and you certainly won’t be the last.

Street Pharmacist
Man I really like your team Street Pharmacist. Other than Vincent Jackson your team didn’t have a good week and you still managed 91 points. Just another PHARMACIST kind of week…hang in there and at the end of the year you wind up in the top 3.

Team Mung
When your kicker is the 4th highest scorer it’s never a good sign. Welcome to fantasy football kid.

The Slippery Wizards
Be very careful here Mr. Roy E. Williams. I don’t know much in life, but I do know you never piss off the head Wizard. You needed to come up big Monday night for the Wizards to win their first weekly win EVER….and you cam up small.

On a side note: Has this been confirmed that the Wizards have never won a week? I know they haven’t won one since ADSL started but does this consecutive winless streak go back to previous fantasy football leagues? Just curious.

Only in Philly

19-Year-Old Arrested For Duct Taping Cat In Philly

Cat, Nicknamed 'Sticky,' Now Up For Adoption

A cat wrapped from its head to paws in duct tape was dumped in a yard in Philadelphia.


Pennsylvania SPCA's Humane Law Enforcement officers have arrested a 19-year-old individual in connection with duct taping a cat from its head to its paws and dumping the feline in a yard.

Officers from the PSPCA rescued the cat Tuesday from a yard. According to investigators, the female cat was so tightly wrapped in duct tape that she could not walk, according to CBS station KYW-TV.

Medical staff at the Pennsylvania SPCA was able to successfully remove the duct tape and the cat, nicknamed Sticky by staff. The friendly feline is doing well.

The Pennsylvania SPCA had offered a $2,000 reward to anyone who provided information leading to a conviction of the person or persons responsible.

"I've been doing this for a lot of years and I have to say that this is the worst case... I've seen animal's feet duct-taped and their mouths duct-taped, but never a body suit like this," George Bengal of the PSPCA said.

Though charges have not been announced yet, according to the PSPCA, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania was pursuing a misdemeanor charge against the person responsible for this crime. A misdemeanor charge carries the potential of up to one year in jail, a fine up to $2,500 and prohibition of pet ownership of up to one year.

There is no word yet on what led the arrest, PSPCA officials are planning on releasing details of the arrest to the media later today.

Sticky is not yet up for adoption; however, applications are being accepted. Applications are available online on the PSPCA Web site.

Typical Philly raising serial killers!
