As I recall it was Kongo (now, and long since, Nishonoseki oyakata) who broke the mould. He was regarded as a real blabbermouth -- as opposed to virtually everybody else.

His yusho basho was the very first time I ever saw sumo. I even remember reading the Sumo World article in the next (Aki '75) issue (Penned by you, possibly?? I don't have my collection handy to look it up...) which mentioned his boasting.

No, I contributed to SW 1987-99.SW had just started publication when I arrived in 1973. My first visit to the old Kuramae Kokugikan was in January 1974. I went with SW in hand --and although there was a lot of interesting information in it, I almost immediately started finding, here and there, mistakes of fact. The historical articles and many of the background pieces were fine, but even things like how to buy tickets were clearly out of date or plain wrong. I sent polite letters pointing out mistakes, but there was never any reaction, correction or reply. I continued to buy it (I still have the entire set, up to the time a number of us walked out) and eventually met Andy Adams in person and agreed to write background pieces and, subsequently, the Then & Now column.

It seems that way -- till I recall that only this evening, at Futeno's dampatsu party, I was exchanging greetings with (then active) Washuyama, Fukunohana and Mihogaseki.

Just look up anything involving Aran from the last couple of years. ;-)

Will Aran still get preferential treatment once Mihogaseki is no longer deputy shimpan-bucho?


With the new shimpan vice-director Matsugane instead of Mihogaseki, this might result in some preferential treatment of Shohozan (I am not worthy...)

2. Promote Shotenro from J5e with an 8-7. Something that hasn't happened since 1947 rendering it irrelevant.

if jiji press article 6:04am is correct, then your scenario 2 just became reality.... shotenro is in.
aminishiki made sekiwake and gagamaru and tochiozan are the osaka komusubis.

cant find the full list yet and also ask for caution, as i neither trust press nor my translation skills

GO BARUTO
