    Hakuhou injured-Kyushu crisis looms

    This is the opposite of a surprise.

    Preparations of the Y/O Kyushu 2018

    Must have wrapped it up with some Tums overnight.

    This pose was just CRYING for him to be wearing a cape.

    "Attendance". That was the key word I needed to look for. And somehow I missed it in the appropriate forum.

    Does that plan assume Western-style arena seating, or Japanese-style masuseki? Capacity will be rather higher with the latter than the former, I'd think. I was trying to see if there was any information in past threads on ticket sales for Kyushu, but I couldn't find anything.

    Since he just had the surgery, it's a safe bet he won't enter Kyushu. And I am not one to argue matters of taste. If Certain People want to ruin a perfectly good burger by dumping cole slaw on it, or perfectly good cole slaw by dousing it in milk, that's their business. I don't judge.

    It's often made with mayonnaise, which contains egg yolk, even if there are no other eggs in it. From the point of view of this discussion that's OK though, because my understanding is that eggs are pareve. Research reveals that in the South it's not too uncommon to add buttermilk to cole slaw. Just sounds like something that might spoil, if you ask me.

    What kind of lunatic puts dairy products in cole slaw? Or bacon for that matter. Once you start putting bacon in everything, then everything starts to taste like bacon and it stops being special. Quite apart from being treif.

    Wajima passes.

    That is "Demon-kakka", a metal band leader who is also a great and very knowledgeable sumo enthusiast and sometime commentator. I don't think he ever appears in public out of character, so yes, he's quite a sight in the commentary booth.

    Aki Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Hanakaze manages an actual bona fide KK every second or third basho. Compared to Hattorizakura, he's yokozuna material. Compared to Hattorizakura, so am I, so it's a pretty low bar.
  11. He still has a chance for a return to makuuchi too, as Kyushu should find him still near the top of Juryo. I hope he makes it!
  12. What was the deal with the gyoji wearing the kimono with script letter Ds all over it? I assumed it was a donor's trademark or something, but I couldn't track it down.
  13. TE WO TSUITE!! TE WO TSUITE! Te wo tsuite. Te... wo... tsui... te...
  14. He can't be any worse than the 40th.
