Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich departs his Chicago home for Littleton, Colo., to begin his 14-year prison sentence on corruption charges Thursday, March 15, 2012.

The former Illinois governor, about to commence a 14-year sentence for corruption charges, was not going to go down without a fight. Rod Blagojevich’s black SUV missed the entrance to the Denver prison that he will soon call home. Was it a sudden attempt to thwart the legal system and escape? Not according to Blago’s lawyer, who said that they just got lost and then went to get lunch. The scene: A Freddy’s steak burger fast food joint. The situation: A final meal for a free man. The final thing someone said to him in the parking lot: “You’re the guy from The Apprentice.”
