    Funny videos and photos of rikishi at play

    I briefly spotted some rikishi at Twin Ring Motegi on the MotoGP coverage today. I didn't get a long enough glimpse at the face to ID the one who was taking photos down at the pit wall. Did anyone happen to catch who it was?

    Hakuhou injured-Kyushu crisis looms

    It's often made with mayonnaise, which contains egg yolk, even if there are no other eggs in it. From the point of view of this discussion that's OK though, because my understanding is that eggs are pareve. Research reveals that in the South it's not too uncommon to add buttermilk to cole slaw. Just sounds like something that might spoil, if you ask me.

    Terunofuji's health problems

    That was...difficult to watch. Seeing the juxtaposition with the video above it is just cruel. Still, sometimes life is cold and uncomforting. Thank you for sharing it.

    Milk products in coleslaw dressing? It's fairly common to have eggs in them, but that's merely something in the dairy case at the grocery store, not an actual dairy product. It may be "creamy", but that's not because there's cream in it (usually).

    Harumafuji scandal thread- part 2

    It would be interesting to know how many of the abusers have also been victims, as is often seen with domestic violence.

    Harumafuji scandal thread- part 2

    Final report: 5.2% of the about 900 NSK members questioned told that they were subjected to violence last year - in 1978 it were 37%. The violence comes mostly under the name of "guidance". Those who suffer violence are mainly rikishi in their 1st to 3rd year, from mainly those who are in the 4th to 6th year.

    Local Sumo Customs

    And for the pro-ama bouts, Naya and Hoshoryu plan to be there - and they might fight again their opponent at last year's kokutai final and sf, local Sumiki. http://headlines.yahoo.co.jp/article?a=20181016-00013541-jprime-ent&p=3 There are other local events that have the name "ozumo" in the name also without pros taking part - basically these events have entry fees, so ozumo just means it's business and not just for fun. In Takaoka-city, the 29th Fushiki-basho ozumo was on Sep. 2nd. This ozumo has a makuuchi (general) division, with banzuke and sanyaku - k/s/o - and preparations the whole year, reported by the local paper, which is the promoter. o https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3HTWwgtgS6w And as special jungyo, this basho has e.g. events in local (nursery) schools - with the basho gyoji and yobidashi: here 2 kids got appointed police chief for a day o o o And plenty of events have pros as guests, with or without them having bouts (always with some against the kids) Tsuna-uchi for the east/west dohyo-iri at the 46th chibikko-sumo tournament in Hita city - the NSK supports most sumo events for kids in the country, and also the Otoi-ozumo, but not unrelated ozumo like the Fushiki-basho http://www.sumo.or.jp/pdf/kyokai/zaimu/h29_jigyo_hokoku.pdf oo Last year, with Sadogatake-beya guests - pics: http://www.hita-k.org/oyama/archives/5535 apparently the Minato-beya connection got lost

    Too soon? IatY, steady mate. Then, now, always an HMF fan. A bit of tongue-in-cheek playfulness. Despite his in the ring brilliance, the former Takanohana oyakata was consistently a bit off in matters of NSK management. A problem rectified too late for our most recent grand champion retiree.

    Funny videos and photos of rikishi at play

    When I first saw his picture and then watched videos of him (as oyakata) he reminded me of the comic actor Hiromasa Taguchi (the fat dance student in Shall We Dance). Furiwake seems able to take off the hinkaku-coat and show you his real character now and again.

    1. KFC/'muricans 2. You don't murder it with bacon. It's a small amount of diced bacon just to add that little extra. Works even better with potato salad.

    What is this? This is so off-topic. This is the burger/coleslaw/is Kintamayama old? thread. Mods, please delete this sumo-related post.

    I always liked him. When he was active and after that. What I also like about him is that he is seeking to do well without aiming to be perfect. I wish more people had his sense of perspective and readiness for fun and play.

    My pleasure. He's a very honest character, Furiwake-oyakata, eh?

    What kind of lunatic puts dairy products in cole slaw? Or bacon for that matter. Once you start putting bacon in everything, then everything starts to taste like bacon and it stops being special. Quite apart from being treif.

    Been looking for this clip for a long time...still one of my all time favourite segments in in the Year End Batsu Games until now :D https://www.facebook.com/AbsolutelyGaki/videos/934099600005692/ For the ones who are confused : Furiwake-oyakata (ex-Takamisakari) did a really funny parody in 2014's annual Year End batsu game.
