    Natsu 2016 Masters

    Got a question. Why am I not listed as scoring and participating in the Natsu Masters list of over 100 rikishi? I played in something like 18 games.

    Can anybody inform me of Osu's status?

    I posted an article about his health on the sumo listserve a couple weeks ago. He and his oyakata fully expect him to be back on the dohyo come March. It will be interesting if he stays in Makuuchi on the new banzuke. Go enter your best guess in Moti's Guess the Banzuke contest. :)
  19. I coinsider it an honor lose get pipped by someone with such sumo game credentials as Gernobono! The first Bench Sumo Yokozuna!
  20. Day 14 - Shohozan (Takayasu)
  21. I had coffee last week while I was in Japan with someone who is a big sumo fan. She postulates that Hakuho was giving away matches for sumo's popularity.

    New game offered: THE UNDERDOG GAME

    Now why didn't I think of this game? You bet I'm in! But I usually don't frequent the forum, so how can I play? Gaijingai

    I am looking for a match

    I am not sure if this is the match you want, but it was a playoff basho. I was there on Day 14 when Musoyama upset Takanohana in May 2001, injuring Takanohana's knee. The next day, day 15, Musashimaru and Takanohana met. Musashimaru did a "sort of henka", shifting aside at the tachiai and easily pushing a charging Takanohana down and out. It set up a playoff. Takanohana got a double mawashi grip on the back of Musashimaru's mawashi and backed him over the tawara. I really gained respect for Takanohana for that as his knee was really ripped up.
