    12 years and counting....

    Late as normal, but I had to say well done (Shaking head...) . My best friend is a drinker, but 3 bottles of wine a night isn't a problem.... (Sign of disapproval...)

    Can I second the request, the pictures on the BBC are horrifying. I'm praying that everyone here is ok and for the families and friends of the people who are killed or missing.

    Haru basho IS canceled!

    Hi, emerging from lurkdom briefly! The wrong reason for getting the publicity, but maybe someone from eurosport will take notice and realise that Ukers are interested still and bring it back! Hi Jan long time no see. The above story is currently the fifth most read story on the BBC website. NSK sure are getting publicity they never dreamed about - shame its all the wrong sort!

    Homasho - what's wrong with him?

    No idea what is wrong, but his left arm looked to be very heavily strapped today, so maybe his wrist/elbow?

    Thank you Dale

    A great thread, it's good to be able to thank Dale. I don't know how you cope, work, RL and sumo on in the middle of the night (I am not worthy...) . I'm generally getting kids & hubby of to school & work when the Sumo is streaming so I really value the chance to watch properly later. (Whistling...)

    New recruits Haru 2006

    Thanks for posting these, they're always interesting. QUOTE(Gusoyama @ Mar 30, 2006, 20:17) Do guys that perform THIS poorly at mae-zumo ever make it? Or is it pretty universal that if you have zero or even one win at your mae-zumo debut, you're doomed to mediocrity? If you look back, these guys are all, except Terasawa, within a few months of their 15th birthdays. There is a potential age gap of 7 years between oldest and youngest, surely the older guys must have a physical advantage until the youngsters develope the skills to cope with bigger tougher opponents.

    The powers that be may not, but how do the audience react to Baruto? I guess if he puts bums on seats he will be accepted gracefully. :-(

    Kaio: NOW is the time!

    I have to agree, I hate to write off any sportsman but Kaio just looks tired. For the last 3 or 4 basho his movement has looked more amd more painful and laboured. Today he looked like a man whose legs were too heavy. I have lived with a bad back for many years and when it is bad, no matter how hard you try, your body will just not do what you want it too.
