The heading to this post stands for "It's A Game Of Chess Out There" and was a popular topic in the Chess Addict column in Chess Monthly. It is kind of like trainspotting for chess players, in that every time you hear a commentator covering another sport use that expression (or something like it) you score yourself a point.
Well after watching the Tour de France every night for the last week and a half I scored my point yesterday evening. Phil Liggett remarked "It is a like a chess game. Evans has to watch every move made by his rivals. And then try and put them in check". Certainly colourful, and even reasonably applicable.
