The Most Annoying Typo, and Tino Martinez

There are a couple words I regularly spell incorrectly while typing, due to some quirk involving the way my brain fires my fingers at my keyboard. One of those words: into, which I regularly, and annoyingly, spell "inot." 

Every time I do this I "grr" silently to myself, and, while correcting the error, see the the "inot," and instantly—due to yet another brain misfire, this one involving an erratic form of mirror-image dyslexia, apparently—think of the name "Tino," which then makes me think of former New York Yankees first baseman Tino Martinez, who won four World Series with the Yankees between 1996 and 2000.

Which then makes me even more annoyed.
