    January 2014 Videos- Days 1-15

    Day 12- I really enjoyed doing this today. And now for the hard part.. Yep, it's time again for me to remind you that donations are accepted at http://www.dichne.com/donate.html No obligation-just as a token of appreciation for my time, especially this basho with all that happened. I hate myself every time I do this, but I spend hours on this..so.. Thanks for all your efforts. Happy to contribute

    What's the status of Hakuho's injury today?

    And in this basho, that always seems to be a contributing factor... the slippery dohyo. Was noticing the increasing "no-hands-down-tachi-ai" by perhaps more than half the rikishi. On a surface such as this, perhaps keeping a low centre of gravity might not be a bad thing - and a there are more than a few guys whose initial charge is right out of an almost upright crouch. This surface seems to get more slippery as the basho continues, so we wait and see. Yet, the secret to salvation might be to NOT lean too far over. To keep some traction, I once suggested that some guys might tape up their feet, but use the sticky side on the outside. Might not be according to Hoyle, but it might supply some grip on that surface, no? With the sticky surface on the outside, how do they keep the tape on their feet? Safety pins? Staples

    @7:17 Could be a boredom-related injury?

    It must have been a while since Hakuho fought from that side of the dohyo. It's a wonder he knew which direction to go

    Thanks as always, Kintamayama. Great work. Since he gave up the nonsense, I'm enjoying watching Aran

    Man, I was looking forward to YBF's video. Seriously though, that's a real shame. What an awful injury.

    Man, the Hakuho-Kisenosato match was a classic! "You want to play silly buggers with me? Fine. I'll play silly buggers with you."
