    Sumo article in Swedish newspaper

    Here is the translated article. A Swedish Krona (SEK) is about 15 Japanese Yen. For other conversions: http://www.xe.com/ucc/ Sumo's future depends on an Estonian Baruto is an example of foreigners having an increasing influence on the more than 1500 year old Japanese national sport of sumo. Baruto, whose real name is Kaido H

    Sumo article in Swedish newspaper

    I'll see what I can do. Sorry..couldn't resist.. (I am not worthy...) I think I'll settle for the easiest way out. (I am not worthy...)
  3. When I opened my Dagens Nyheter today (Sweden's biggest morning daily), starting with the sports pages, to my surprise there was a full-spread article about sumo, under the heading of 'Sumo's future depends on an Estonian' and with a big picture of Baruto getting his hair done. The article contains a lot of basic facts about professional sumo, visit to Mihogaseki-beya, interview with Baruto, interview with Doreen Simmons, etc. A very well-written article. After perusing the article, the only glaring mistake that I could find is that the expression 'a sumo' is used a lot throughout the article. Unfortunately, it does not seem to be available at http://dn.se. Edit: I found out that as a paying subscriber, I can download the paper in PDF format. So for you to have a look at the article, I have made it available here. See pages 4-5.

    Sekitoro oracle question.

    Very well, sir.

    Sekitori Quadrumvirate - Technical problem ?

    Yeah, let's hope so. :-D Of course I will have Internet access where I am going, and I will try to monitor my email accounts at the hakkeyoi.net domain (***@hakkeyoi.net, ***@s4.hakkeyoi.net etc.) But I doubt that I will be able to enter a hundred picks manually again.

    Sekitoro oracle question.

    Baruto's 0-1-14 a few basho ago was counted as such, which I wasn't happy about that either since a handful of players did manage to change their pick at the last minute. Masatsukasa should be removed eventually...I think Kashunowaka needs to do that manually, if my previous observations on this are correct. That is correct, and so are your other observations. Tokitsuumi's zero wins will be counted as such. I don't make the rules, so I'll leave that to Zenjimoto to answer.

    Sekitori Quadrumvirate - Technical problem ?

    Back home for a couple of hours, and just entered all the emailed day 1 picks. I hope everything will work now, because I leave again tomorrow and it will be hard for me to fix things away from home. Let's see what we have here ... Sorry, Tainosen - you have now entered some of the same rikishi again on day 2, which makes it impossible for me to enter your day 1 pick. I will continue to check the rest of this thread. Stay tuned. Edit: I think that's it.

    No games for me this basho

    I am going away on a trip during the entire Natsu basho, and I will also be away a couple of days before that. I will even have to skip the pre-basho games ... :-( I will request kosho at the game sites, but I announce my kyujo from Natsu basho here just in case.

    Rikhis Talk Senshuraku Haru Basho 2006

    Saw it later. Well, if he says 13 win yusho, I think that's too low now.

    Yes. You can always edit your message and make the font a little smaller ... (Dribbling...)

    Although I do think that the overuse of big fonts actually detracts from the message, essentially I agree with Kotoseiya.

    Rikhis Talk Senshuraku Haru Basho 2006

    According to the translation, he does say "more than 13 wins", which would mean 14-1 or 15-0. I think that Tochiazuma would in fact be promoted with a zensho yusho, but not with a 14-1 yusho. So for all practical purposes, I think he is back to square one. If what he says is actually "13 wins or more", he is not setting the bar high enough IMHO.

    How high will Bart rise?

    Yes, I had Homasho above Baruto too. But it's not a given by any means. Very difficult to predict how they will handle these huge results.
