    Makunouchi Yushos in 2023

    Y - Terunofuji O - Takakeisho S - Hoshoryu O - Hoshoryu K/S - Takayasu M - Does Daieisho have one more big show in him?

    Yokozuna Terunofuji in 2023

    He'll stick around, but will only be in 3 full basho and a partial. Thus my 6 kinboshi is rather low, but we'll stick it out there (Abi-2, Kotonowaka-2, Tamawashi, Wakamotoharu).

    Tamawashi - the new sekitori veteran

    I see another year of him. He'll last through Hatsu 2024 then the significant decline and intai later that year. So, 3KK/3MK with a 10 winner in there in July or September and a big MK after it.

    Ozekis and Yokozunas for January 2024 - Feast or Famine?

    Terunofuji Y Takakeisho O Hoshoryu I'm on the fence for Wakatakakage but thinking he'll fall short. As for Abi, will his new-found attitude propel him higher? Again, he'll find his wall.

    Takakeisho in 2023 (used to be the 'youngster's poll....)

    Barring injury, he's a perma-zeki. Don't see him ever getting the tsuna. I see him being more consistent this year and will go with 1Y, 3JY. 13-2 in the yusho (prior to return of the Yokozuna) and split 11-4/12-3 in the JY. I see a pair of 9-6 in there to round out the totals.

    Aki 2022 discussion (results)

    Am I the only one who would like to see a Yusho playoff at 7-0 between Asanoyama and Asonoyama?

    Natsu 2022 Discussion Thread - here be spoilers

    All this would do is create another rikishi who is owed a favor. Where would this madness end?

    Happy birthday Yangnomazuma

    Thanks for the shout outs! My birthday was a rather regular day but I did win in Bench Sumo. We celebrated yesterday with a dinner out and am heading out for a special round of golf today.

    Kyushu 2021 discussion

    Although I know who you mean with "TKO" much like the various "Taka" and "WTK" that litter the board, is it REALLY that difficult to use people's actual shikona? Clarity is cool....

    Kyushu 2021 discussion

    Meh...he just taped it up a bit tight and the blood flow from the foot back up is constricted enough to cause some discoloration.

    Hakuhou caught watching Judo

    If one must google the name, can one even consider the person the GOAT of GOATs? I think not.

    Terunofuji is the 73rd Yokozuna.

    I was struck by the obvious grimace of pain when he got into the kneeling position. I'm quite familiar with that pain and it gives me even more appreciation for the strength of the man. To work through that pain - it doesn't really get much better unless you're really warmed up, something I'm thinking sumotori rarely achieve. Mine have the tendency to hurt for a while, go numb until the surrounding muscles get tired, then announce themselves with a hearty "here I am!!!". Without my braces, some of my activities are just not possible - bowling, racquetball, etc. At least I still have golf and darts without the braces.

    Nagoya Basho 2021

    In MMA and boxing, they remove their gloves and leave them in the middle of the ring. Hopefully we won't be seeing a mawashi left on the dohyo.

    Nagoya Basho 2021

    I often read the righteous indignation from the SF masses when certain things happen and giggle uncontrollably. I prime the fingers for a snarky retort then remember that it's a forum and opinions are meant to be shared. Aoiyama with a dame-oshi? Would you rather have Aoiyama fully engaged in the basho, trying his hardest, and putting in effort, or would you prefer slow, weak, IDGAF Aoiyama? At least he found his balls and decided to fight. Henka this and henka that? I think the Forum makes much ado about nothing on that topic. It's part of the game. This talk about Hakuho's bout on day 14 and people bemoaning his lack of hinkaku is pretty hilarious. I remember back in the day when Asashoryu was the GOAT and people were literally whining about hinkaku and how Hakuho was SOOO much better than him. It was said it will be nice when Asashoryu is gone so we can have a Yokozuna (Hakuho) who embodies all the good in life. Now, it appears he's the devil incarnate. Was it unconventional? Sure. Were those harite delivered with much gusto? Yes!!! Does "Ozeki" Shodai deserve a wake up call? Hell yes! I can only hope that at least part of the reasoning was just that; to smack some sense into an Ozeki that underperforms with the regularity Old Faithful. All told, thanks for the laughs.
