I just thought there should be a section for the moments when the spirit of IJ intrudes on daily life in funny or surprising ways.

For example, last night, Stephen Colbert mentioned the T.I.U., or Tennis Integrity Unit, which is investigating "unusual betting patterns" coming from Russia and Italy. Germane because it's:
a) An abbreviation
b) Tennis related
and c) borderline ridiculous.
