    After getting the confirmation emails every basho I entered for more years than I care to remember, my day 1 confirmation emails turned out to be in my spam box this time. I have no idea why this happened, but it has been fixed for day 2.

    All seems to be well for Day 2, so I am guessing that Jakusotsu has it right and I somehow reset things when I resubmitted. The email confirmations I found later in my spam box - quite what they were doing there I don't know, but hopefully I've got that sorted out now too.

    I got my entry in for day 1 Bench Sumo, received the 'thank you for your entry, an email has been sent to etc etc', but never received the actual email. I tried resubmitting several times, but always the same result. This morning I see that my intended entry was not recorded, and the default torikumi entry was used . Consequently I lost my match on the bench! I have not had time to check on my other games entries, but I don't think I received an email confirming my entries for them either.

    Favorite Songs

    This is a favourite song of mine, and another possibility for an anthem for the North Pole Ichimon.

    Sumo Ranfurly Shield History

    Wonderful work! I started watching sumo in 1990, so this latest batch has brought back many happy memories!

    Managed to get it to enter correctly on the third attempt.

    Hakuho - 17th annual poll!

    Wow! I'd forgotten about this completely. I cannot explain the discrepancies in my predictions for the number of wins for the year - a slip of the finger perhaps - certainly not intentional. Hakuho always felt rather special to me, because we share the same birthday - March 11th (but not the same year!), and I am proud to share it with such a stellar performer. I too, feel privileged to have been watching sumo during the time of his reign and I will miss his presence on the dohyo. I wish him well for the future, and look forward to seeing him pass on all his learning to his own rikishi. I wish him good luck with his own stable, and I think he's going to need it with the current folk in the NSK.

    So? Not even Hakuho the GOAT can hold off Father Time indefinitely, and one senses that it's now or never for him to zensho, or even to get another yusho. His recovery from the knee surgery seems little short of miraculous to me - I never expected him to last this long this basho- and I guess I'd just like to see one last hurrah before retirement. Terunofuji will have other chances to win, and indeed may well win this basho. Being old myself, I guess I just like to see a good oldie still able to beat younger opponents (I really wanted Federer to win Wimbledon too, but that didn't happen! ) I'm keeping all my fingers and toes crossed that this one does.

    Surely a zensho yusho by a 36 year old Yokozuna is a very rare event? And one that is not likely to happen again any time soon.

    I do hope Hak gets a zensho yusho but I think it may be difficult for him to get past Terunofuji as he is now. Best of all would-be Hak gets zensho, Teru gets the rope, Hak retires covered in glory, and everyone is happy except possibly the YDC. Jim
