    Hi, I would like to play Bench Sumo (again). I am already registered on sumogames with a different shikona but I also used to play Bench Sumo in the early 2000s as Tameiki.

    Kisenosato decides to unretire after dominating Takayasu during pre-basho training. The NSK and YDC hold and emergency meeting and decide to reinstate him on the banzuke, condemning Chiyoshoma to the first ever Makuuchi-TD rank. Kisenosato gets a zenpai Yusho and is awarded the emperor cup by President Trump and an automatic slot to perform the dohyo-iri at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics (much to Hakuho's disgust)

    Last basho's first ridiculous prediction turned out to be somewhat un-ridiculous: Hakuho claims a series of little injuries are pestering him during the basho; meanwhile he wins 15-0 ; also takes time out after day 7 to get in BP with the Orix Buffaloes. So, I vow to start this basho with reliably ridiculous predictions Hakuho enters the basho so as to perform the dohyo-iri with Enho and Ishiura. Stumped for an excuse to go kyujo, he claims that since Frank Sinatra and BB King are his favorite musicians, and since he realized they both died on May 14th, he must spend that day in somber reflection. Enho is set to receive a new kesho mawashi from Subway sandwich shops; a spokesman said that his tachiai was effective PR for their brand. The Chiyomaru - Enho bout is shrouded in controversy as Enho temporarily disappears during the action. Only his muffled cries alert the gyoji to the fact that he has been trapped in Chiyomaru's fat folds. Kotoshogiku posts a masterful 11-win basho and, certain for a re-promotion to the sanyaku, proclaims that he will replace his former Koto-bauer with the Twerk. The YDC recommends his forced retirement.

    Enhou is harboring a right-shoulder injury from last basho. Today he did some light fundamentals." I still have no idea how much I can use the shoulder. I'll be checking out how I feel as I go about my business.." he said. He is trying his best to put on some weight, but is known for not eating much and has trouble eating hot food. "When I eat piping hot food I choke.." he said.

    Trump gets granted his wish to present the cup to the winner. Takakeisho who wins the yusho will be strongly against it and as a protest he will use his fierce oshi attack to send Trump flying into the 4th row... So much for good Japanese-US diplomatic relationship

    * In a match against Kaisei, Enho hops on him like a backpack. Unsure what to do about this, Kaisei walks out of the ring, hoping this will result in a torinaoshi. Enho is pronounced the winner. * Chiyotairyu and Tochiozan both refuse to participate in the basho until the new emperor settles the debate over who does a better Elvis impersonation. * For the second consecutive basho, Ichinojo manages to not fall asleep on the dohyo.

    Given all the interest in an all-Miyagino-Stable-member dohyoiri, and given the specific kesho mawashi set (with the yume kanji meaning "dream") in the rehearsal photos above, I humbly suggest that this thread be renamed: "Dohyoiri Dream Team".

    Kiribayama got his 3rd kesho mawashi: from the head of the Michinoku-beya koenkai and NWI holdings, trade partner of the Italian jewelry brand MIMI - with a black cockatoo as the MIMI logo, holding in its beak a FREE VOLA butterfly necklace for 660 000 Yen (plus tax). Maybe Kiribayama got the real one cheap: a present for his mother on Mother's day. The 4th kesho mawashi is in the making. o o o Michinoku-oyakata on the right - Kiribayama's parents came from Mongolia - the presentation was at the luxury shopping complex Ginza SIX o

    Ura (now sd16w) is doing rehabilitation. Asked about the state of recovery, he replied: "That I can't tell", but he also talked and smiled and made an impression full of vitality. Kise-oyakata: "When he got re-injured, I thought he wouldn't get back on his feet, but his character has become stronger." He made clear that the reentry date is unclear. http://www.nikkansports.com/battle/sumo/news/201904300000454.html

    Weights time again. Makuuchi average is now 163.9, down from 166.2 half a year ago, probably due to Enhou's 99 kilos (first Makuuchi rikishi in nearly seven years to weigh under 100 kilos since Takanoyama) skewing the numbers. ("I want to increase my weight by 3-5 kilos before shonichi," he said..). Heaviest Makuuchi- Ichinojou at 227 kilos. Takakeishou stays at 169. Chiyomaru is at his heaviest ever- 193 kilos. Hakuhou stays at 158, Kakuryuu up by 4 kilos to 161. Feel free to add more if you have a better seat than me.

    We are so much used to Hakuho smashing every record, we tend to forget about the extent of his lead in certain categories. Today, Hakuho secured his (Makuuchi) KK on Nakabi for the 46th time. Which is utterly insane. Here's the top 5 with a couple of comments: 46 Hakuho achieved participating in 83 basho (sit-outs excluded) -> 55.42% 1x as Sekiwake, 1xOzeki, rest Y at least one Makuuchi Nakabi KK in every single year between 2006 and 2019 (both including) five years with five Nakabi KKs (four of which in consecutive years 11-14) only person ever to achieve at least five Nakabi KKs in a single year (six has never happened) 25 Chiyonofuji in 75 basho -> 33.33% 2xSekiwake at least one Nakabi KK in each year 1980-1990 23 Asashoryu in 52 basho -> 44.23% 1xSekiwake, 3xOzeki most likely (I didn't really know how to check this) the only one ever to achieve a Nakabi KK in every single basho fought as an Ozeki (3/3) at least one Nakabi KK in each year 2002-2009 22 Taiho in 64 basho -> 34.38% 1xMaegashira, 1xSekiwake, 1xOzeki at least one Nakabi KK in each year 1960-1969 and 1971 20 Kitanoumi in 74 basho -> 27.03% 1xSekiwake, 2xOzeki at least one Nakabi KK in each year 1974-1975, 1977-1981 and 1984 Here's the query.
