    Retirements after Natsu 2022

    I remember meeting Fukamiyama when he was a shin-deshi. He wasn't too impressive then but that could be due to the fact he was still adjusting to the sumo lifestyle. Actually, I'm suprised he lasted 12 years.
  2. Well, not really. But my favorite collectible card game just announced a new special card set featuring characters from the video game "Street Fighter." While I usually don't get excited about these special card sets, I will be procuring this one on principle alone:
  3. I'm only two hours away from Birmingham and am hoping to attend at least one day, if not both.

    Woo-Hoo!!! Finally I can get to see live sumo again. Never been a follower of amasumo, but since Birmingham is only a two-hour drive, I'll take what I can get!

    What we do in our off-time

    BTW, a Black Lotus sold at auction, earlier this year, for $500,000.

    No,but I did have a couple Gaea's Cradles which I didn't sell... My only regret is I didn't keep one of each of the cards I did sell. I wasn't planning on playing again, but going through all the old cards gave me "the itch" again.

    What we do in our off-time

    During lock down, I picked up an old hobby again from my younger days: A collectible card game called Magic:the Gathering. I played back in the 90s and something made me dig out my footlocker full of old cards. I was curious to find out the value of some of my cards and started going through them on a card pricing website. I was amazed to find out many of these individual cards are mow worth hundreds of dollars. I sold some to a local game store for $3500. That has financed me getting back into it and going to the store every week to play. It's kind of strange, though as I'm 30+ years older than anyone else there as this store is across the street from one of the biggest universities in the state.

    Tamanoumi pics overview

    I saw that too but figured since when the NHK announcers talk to/about him it sounds like they're saying Kitanoumi anyway. I guess they're interchangeable.

    Hakuho retires

    I impressed... A well written article about sumo in western press. It doesn't happen often.
  10. I never would've pegged you as a "Home Fry." Welcome to the club!

    I don't know, but he does look familiar for some reason.

    Just for gee-whiz, that's Aobajo behind Taiho's left elbow.
