The other Daido, Omichi is it for the first time and has a makushita 15 qualification now, but the Emperor's cup (the amateurs have one, too, at the All Japan championships for becoming amateur yokozuna) is yet to be won - that also and he can start at ms10 like Endo - anyway he hasn't yet said that he'll turn pro.
Toyodai 4th year, he beat Nakamura from Nittaidai in the final.

    Sumo is a very good thing. Though better with affordable video.

Mitch.  If he joins, I vow to call him that till he changes to Oonara or something else.


What do you get when you cross an insomniac, an agnostic and a dyslexic?

A guy who is up all night arguing with himself over whether or not there is a dog.

I see him as listed as academically in business law; if he goes pro and eventually becomes an oyakata, maybe in 20 years they'll have an insider who can figure out how to deal with the huge mess that is the NSK organizationally.  Or maybe not, because he'll haven't spent any time actually using anything he learned in college.
