    Natsu jungyo 2019

    My thoughts exactly , although I would be glad to be proven wrong.

    Nagoya 2019 Discussion (here be spoilers)

    What I find slightly mistifying, is that Izutsu is run by ex-Sakahoko, who is the elder brother of ex-Terao, the boss of Shikoroyama beya, which appears to be one of the larger and better run stables.

    What rikishi do you miss the most?

    I would say Terao, Kirishima and of course, Chiyonofuji. I must be getting old!

    Natsu basho 2019 discussions [SPOILERS]

    Here is an interesting aside, which not everyone might know. Hakuho and Douglas Adams (he who gave us 42 as the answer to the meaning of Life, the Universe, and everything) share the same birthday - March 11th. And I feel honoured to share it with two such illustrious persons too! Getayukata

    Spirited rikishi Natsu 2019

    I thought that Tochinoshin would certainly be No. 1, but he doesn't even get a mention!

    New kesho mawashi (pics)

    I agree that the kimono is more memorable than the mawashi. I'm not sure that I would say that it outshines it however, maybe that it it is more striking! Cheers, Getayukata

    More birds! I am loving these ones too.

    New kesho mawashi (pics)

    Oh, as a birdwatcher I love this one! It's a great portrayal of a Japanese Pheasant. It will have to go on my list of top 10 kesho mawashis!

    Hatsu Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Wait, you're a birder too? That would make two Geordie birding and sumo enthusiasts on this forum!

    Hatsu Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Wow! Another Geordie!! Welcome. I too was born and bred in Newcastle, but have been in Canada since 1973.

    CMs with (fake) sumo appearance

    This reminds me of an ad that I saw in a magazine in 1990, which I liked so much I kept it. Can anyone recognise the sumo wrestler in it, or is it just some model made up to look like one?

    Videos Hatsu 2019- Days 1-15

    I'm not a big fan of the highlights, but couldn't see any exclamation mark so that I could vote. I'm sure it's just me, but I find them too loud, and unnecessary. I'd rather just go straight into today's video. On the other hand, I do like font day!

    Have a go at a Haiku!

    May I suggest that "Yokozuna no longer" would fit the scan of a haiku better! Cheers, Getayukata
