    Asashoryu, Harumafuji, Baruto bouts - video clips

    I thank you!! :-) What is wrong with Harumafuji/Ama?! In the bout against Kisenosato, it looked like he just fell over. :-)

    Beer or Milk?

    In my experience, whether it is accurate or not, the idea that beer is a regular part of the sumo diet, is often put forth as the actual practice in "informational" TV shows, articles, etc.. about sumo (at least in the US). I have watched several programs, including a 2008 National Geographic special, that spoke of beer as a regular part of the sumo diet. If it is not accurate, then these types of programs are much to blame for spreading the "myth."

    Day 13 results and day 14 pairings

    I had hoped that Kisenosato and Kotoshogiku would be able to KK and move back toward Sanyaku after their MKs last basho. Any thoughts on why they weren't able to move back to Sanyaku? Are they injured? If I missed this discussion on another thread, please direct me there. :-P

    What to do with Wakanoho?

    I voted for the one year option and then for him to be allowed back with a shikona change. It would really depend on how well the Kyokai as a whole stayed away from scandal. I do feel bad for him - his misstep came right as the Kyokai couldn't absorb anymore scandals involving sekitori. It will be interesting to watch how it is handled. Good luck to him!

    Asashouryuu- A new turn of events..

    ;-) The timing of this is not the greatest... even if he gets a pass from the Kyokai.

    Interview with Izutsu Oyakata

    Wow! That was a really good and informative interview. I thought his idea of some sort of high school equivalency for rikishi was a good one - worth being explored. Thanks for sharing the interview! (I am not worthy...)
