  1. I never would've pegged you as a "Home Fry." Welcome to the club!

    Colorizing old sumo photographs

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

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

    Takagenji's spot? Just guessing.

    There were 18 Shikimori Inosuke before him...

    Hokuseiho - Shot at a record?

    I know what you meant, but this is what came to mind...

    Terunofuji is the 73rd Yokozuna.

    I was wondering that myself. For some reason I have always enjoyed seeing the pictures/videos of current and retired Yokozuna teaching the newest member of the fraternity how to do the dohyo-iri. The first one I remember seeing was Wakanohana I and Wajima teaching Wakanohana II back in 1978.

    Ring entrance of the Mageshira ranks + Taiho

    I loved the old Kuramae KK. Iremember hanging outside the shitaku-beya telling each rikishi "gambatte" as they headed towards the hanamichi.

    Obviously, I have a different perspective than Araiwa, but I can honestly say I never missed watching a Makuuchi bout during my time in Japan. (I even quit playing little league baseball because practice was held between 4-6 pm and I refused to miss sumo.) I stand by my opinion, but it's just that: my opinion.

    I never thought of him as fierce but maybe that's because I always thought of Kitanoumi as the fierce one. I considered Wajima as more mellow.

    Takagenji Caught Smoking Weed

    That's why I added the "?"... I couldn't remember if it was for weed or yaocho..

    Nagoya Yusho Predictions?

    I wasn't too far off.

    Nagoya Basho 2021

    I feel privileged to have witnessed a couple things this basho: 1) The reemergence of the greatest to ever don a mawashi and 2) (IMHO) the greatest comeback in professional sports history. I would love to see Hakuho hang on for a few more basho in the hopes of witnessing the maturation of Yokozuna Terunofuji. Also to see a few awesome yotsu battles between the two of them. Unless Hakuho actually believes he can't beat Teru on the mawashi, I don't think we'll see the tactics he used here again.
