    Sumo’s newest Ozeki — Shodai Naoya

  8. Jakusotsu: Gee, Gaijingai. If it weren’t for the software hiccup in day 12, you would have ended with 15 more points for 187 points and jun-yusho. Poor Gaijingai! The status you missed out on. All your new koenkai members world be talking you out for dinner and drinks. Gaijingai: Go ahead, rub it in. But ha ha on you. I only drink Gracie’s Draft. They don’t have that in Tokyo. Take that! Hah!

  11. Gaijingai: Hmmm...I see that I was not entered for Day 12. I did enter Shimanoumi, who should have won me 15 points, but we all know that there is the occasional hiccup in the system, plus it's only a game, so I'll let it slide. Jakusotsu: Then why bring it up? Are you looking for sympathy? You will find none from me. Gaijingai: That's good. Thank you! Jakusotsu: ZAP!

    UDH Aki Basho 2020

    So guys - why can't I get any standings past Day 4? All the links do for me is to take me to the UDH site and nothing shows up after Day 4. I'm using both Chrome and Edge as my browsers throughout this basho. Any help would be appreciated.

    JWS July 2020

    Ross Mihara:: Here’s Riyo Ohta with a Hanamichi report with Gaijingai. Riyo: Gaijingai, congratulations on your success. As noted, you have back to back Yushos and a total of 3 Yushos in the two years this game has been running. What do you say to this? Gaijingai: Why aren’t I a Yokozuna??!! I’ve been cheated! I’ve been robbed! When I get my hands on the Wackytaka guy, he will feel like a new recruit when I’m through with him! Riyo: Oh dear! then I guess the party will be called off. Gaijingai: What party? Riyo: The big party for your Yusho! All the sushi and okonomiyaki you can eat...for a week! Gaijingai: Er...Um...As I was saying, I would still be in Jonokuchi if it were not for the excellent training of Wakatake in the operation of this fine game! Riyo: I thought so. Back to you, Ross!
