    New recruits Natsu 2024

    I'm glad someone else noticed... Doesn't seem like the sharpest tool in the shed but maybe he was just nervous.

    Mount Rushmore of Ozumo: Celebrating Legends

    Futabayama His consecutive win streak record is still being chased almost 100 years later. Arguably the greatest in the first half of the 20th Century. Taiho Set the benchmark for greatness. The greatest in the second half of the 20th Century. Takamiyama The first foreigner to win the cup set the stage for the waves of foreign rikishi who still have a great influence. Andy Adams Single handedly responsible for introducing me and countless others to sumo through his Sumo World magazine.

    He's done. I think this is the last basho we'll see Kotonowaka...

    2024 Fuji TV 48th Grand sumo tournament

    I just remember seeing old pics of ex Wakanohana I and Tochinishiki doing the pensioner bouts back probably in the 60s or so.

    2024 Fuji TV 48th Grand sumo tournament

    No slight intended to those listed above, but it would generate more interest if they featured Hakuho, Kakuryu and Kisenosato... Just my 2 yen..

    He CAN, but he would have to enter the bout not thinking about who his opponent is. He just looked afraid/star-struck/intimidated in their first match up this basho.
  9. If this happens, I would favor Kirishima for the Y. I don't think Terunofuji's knees would handle that many tough matches in a row (and I may be way off here) but I think Kirishima would have more stamina than young Koto.

    Hatsu 2024 Rikishi Preview

    I really enjoy these. Gives me a lot of nostalgia for the old Sumo World previews in my youth that I read so much I almost had them memorized.
  11. Terunofuji Y Kirishima Hoshoryu O Takakeisho Kotonowaka O2 When he's on the dohyo, Teru is still better than anyone else on the banzuke. I think he'll hang on a little longer...

  14. I may have missed it, but I've constantly been thinking about my "friend" @Kintamayama and his countrymen this week. If you see this Moti, just know my thoughts and prayers are going out to you and yours daily. Stay safe, my friend!

    Trivia bits

    Ahh, yes. Remembered by those of us that followed sumo in the 70s a poster-boy for mediocrity.
