    Videos -Kyushu 2014- Day 1-15

    Kotoshougiku was well over the line before Toyohibiki moved, but Toyohibiki skillfully recovered. At least that's what I can see from here. i think oshi-sumo rikishi (with thighs like an ox*) would take Toyohibiki's tachi-ai over Kotoshogiku's every day of the week. the fact that Shogi was well over the line, before Hibs moved, just gave the "chance" to the STRONG legs of the latter to find the best angle in order to push upwards and backwards an opponent with less mass and an ox like stature and style of pushing. Hibs found the way to beat Shogun for all eternity .... don't tell him ... or .... please tell him. I kind of like him (In jonokuchi...) *of course Toyohibiki and Kotoshogiku are respectively the president and vice-president of this "club"

    Nagoya 2014 Discussion Thread

    Today Kotoyuki was so certain for his loss against Tochinoshin, after the latter got a grip of the mawashi, that he had to give it a second effort to talk out of the dohyo. (Sigh...) That was horrible ..... Truly horrible. (Hit the wall...)

    Longest ever tomoe-sen

    the tomoe-sen in Makuuchi look like this Asashoryu had half of his tomoe-sen bouts in non-sekitori ranks. Musashimaru (unfortunately) was not very productive in such bouts ... Especially against Taka .... (probably a reason i never liked him (In jonokuchi...)) and this is how Juryo looks like in the tomoe-sen department. and this a list for more yusho through the play-off system. Asashoryu and Chiyonofuji were true grinders on the dohyo, but Hakuho may go past them with another yusho through a kettei-sen.

    all division yusho

    Tosayutaka and Tanzo are fighting for the top spot on this list for the time being. I am obviously counting out Goeido for a lower division yusho anytime soon. Same goes for Tokitenku, Shohozan, Aoiyama and Jokoryu for the time being Ikeru ... aka the "Jonokuchi killer" ... has a body made out of glass but how many yushos can a man "steal" from kids in the long run (Wearing a paperbag...) Keitenkai also has a legitimate chance for the top.

    hey Ken where can i find you?

    i am trying to contact Ken Coller concerning the DVDs of the bashos. I tried both his e-mails (don't want to type them here) but cannot reach him due to "unsuccessfull mail delivery". does anyone know a way to contact him? is the price for the DVDs the same as last basho (i imagine that a few of you guys buy them) ?

    Yokozuna/Ozeki preperandum - Aki 2013

    I have to say that never in a hundred years would I have imagined seeing an image such as this, even if I was stoned. not a very rare pose for a pic by rikishi here's Tochihikari back in the day for example

    Sumo Reference Website Down?

    i don't know if this is the right place to post this topic but here goes .... (Clapping wildly...) as i mentioned in the past i am completely illiterate when it comes to database queries. I don't know why but all these parameters in the query page make me insane and i barely ever get any results similar to what i was looking for. my problem this time is the following... i noticed the high percentage of okuri-something wins for Kaiho (not very strange though if you know his style of fighting) and i wanted to make a comparison to the rest of the sekitori (maybe include some retired ones too) and i wanted to avoid doing that manually. Is there any chance of doing this? please instruct me and i will buy you a beer when we meet. :-P :-)

    2013 Summer jungyo

    nice to see Harumafuji without the ankle wraps. I hope he is feeling healthier and that we avoid watching him use weak footwork during the basho. also happy for Endo being picked for kawaigari. He is already one of my personal favourites from the roster.

    New NSK homepage (split from Sumo Reference Updates)

    i don't know if this change creates problems with some of you that you administrate stuff online but i find the new site a huge improvement. I like it a lot.

    GTB - A key basho 2013!

    i actually submitted my entry to GTB. (Holiday feeling...) if anyone wants to have a laugh ... eeeeem .... i meant if anyone wants to see a newbie having no idea what to do with the bottom of the makuuchi i will post my entry here .... (Dribbling...) lovely stuff down there. i was actually thinking of making Makuuchi's lowest rank the M15w spot. This looks horrible (Wearing a paperbag...) (Raging at computer...)

    Adopt a Jonidan Game

    That was the point that I was trying to make in my original post. My interest is simply to revitalize the adoption concept. If it takes a simple game to drag people into doing it, so be it. I probably will not take part in the game, but let's do something. that would be my target and also the reason i would participate in a game like that. And again .... even though i have already "adopted" 2 rikishi, i wouldn't mind adding another one in the family. So yeah .... even if there is a time constraint and a "first come, first served" attitude around it i still pick Aoto .... :-D. Or i will just stick to my adoptions and dream of a better life for both of them in the future. (btw .... where is the customary topic where we brag about our adoptions?)

    Musashimaru starts own heya!

    maybe he just used water slides to lose the weight (pic taken from the Musashigawa facebook page)

    GTB - A key basho 2013!

    Moti's post made want to enter this game for the first (and possibly last) time. I may have to idea how to make a banzuke and i never really bothered about banzukes in general (except the actual printed banzukes that i love and tend to get them once in a while). sooooo ... yeah ... this time around i will set the "Bar of Ignorance" for everyone by being dead last when the results come out. (disclaimer: My final entry will be made by using all "non-scientific" methods to get the final product)

    Forum Update Feedback

    the Harumafuji pic is just fine ... (at least for me)

    Nagoya Basho 2013 discussion thread

    i find his shikona rather creative ... i am just fed up with fujis, yamas, ryus and kotos. the Endo shikona tells a lot about the rikishi's balance. His Oyakata saw that in him and tried to use it for his name (randomly selected pic of a motorcyclist performing an Endo, provided by google) B-)

    Adopt a Jonidan Game

    i know who i would pick if such a game materializes. I may have a problem n the "family" as i already have two adopted rikishi but i think we can work it out with some good "parenting" B-) (Gathering...) . so yeah ... if i could be on time when the picks are made i would definitely pick Aoto from Hakkaku beya. And i agree with Doitsu ... the game ends when all picked rikishi are intai. Same thing goes with all "adoptions" ... doesn't it? I don't remember anyone that stopped having hope in their rikishi ... (In jonokuchi...) btw ... i think i had 4 adopted rikishi over the years that went intai rather abruptly (Morioka , Daiyuchi , Hoshihikari and Chiyonoshima) ... not a good father after all .... :-|

    Nagoya Basho 2013 discussion thread

    Well .. this query prompted to make another one of my own and i found out that Kuniazuma (the Brazilian) is the rikishi with the most non-sekitori Yushos. He has 5 and the only other active rikishi with 4 are Goeido, Tanzo and Tosayutaka (he has a chance next basho to tie Kuniazuma if he gets the Makushita Yusho). Active with 3 yusho are: Aoiyama, Baruto, Ikeru, Shohozan, Jokoryu and Tokitenku . Ikeru could realistically catch up with the brazilian on his way up the ranks.
  24. Thanks for the links. Lovely stuff.

    Nagoya 2013 day after pics

    kinda funny given that his wife used to hang around Miyagino in her schoolgirl uniform a few years back. Yep, have the photo and was there when her mother pushed her to the front to meet him after asageiko. :-/ ........ Doitsuyama hit the spot here.
