  1. Aki jungyo 2017

    I reckon it's part of everyday language among us rednecks too.
  2. Shishokai convenes

    Has anyone checked the Miyagino beya computer's browsing history to see if anyone is looking to buy a Rooney jersey? Just wondering...
  3. Great articles, John. I'm glad to go back to reading articles on sumo where I'm not whispering to myself "What a freakin' idiot!" as I'm reading...
  4. Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Aki 2017

    There were also fewer slots in Makuuchi and Juryo in the late 70s. (61 slots vs the present 70) which kind of skews the query results in the Db.
  5. Basho Talk - Aki 2017 (SPOILERS)

    I would argue if all the top guys (Y & O) were in "top form", there wouldn't be much drama at all as I'm pretty sure a healthy Hakuho at 32 is still better than everybody else.
  6. Basho Talk - Aki 2017 (SPOILERS)

    Without doing any research, I would guess the average for the Rikishi of the Year is probably somewhere in the mid 70s. Although in the last 10 yrs (the period Hakuho has been a Yokozuna) we have gotten pretty used to that number being around 80.
  7. Basho Talk - Aki 2017 (SPOILERS)

    That would be hysterical. I would love (and hate) to see it...
  8. Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Aki 2017

    Can't think of a scarier/funnier combination that has ever been written....
  9. Basho Talk - Aki 2017 (SPOILERS)

    CAN'T......... LOOK.........AWAY...!!!!!!!!!!
  10. Basho Talk - Aki 2017 (SPOILERS)

    Even if Goeido takes the yusho, I have every confidence he will come back with a convincing 6-9 in Kyushu.
  11. I remember reading in Sumo World back in the 70s/80s about these three. If it will help the research, I can look through and find it. I distinctly recall a picture of Takamiyama and Bryn George when the latter was a shin-deshi. (Jesse was 6'3 and Bryn was MAYBE 5'9)
  12. Basho Talk - Aki 2017 (SPOILERS)

    For some reason when I read your post (which included quoting Kinta's "Wacky Aki" moniker), I automatically read your Shikona as Wacky-Tacky!
