    Hakuho retires

    At least they didn't make him sign it with blood?

    Hakuho retires

    Its crazy to think back to the far off time of Nov. 2010, when I first started watching sumo real-time. Asa had recently left, and Hakuho was already a Yokozuna with several titles. More than a decade after that point in his already great career, its finally come to pass. Even though it has been expected for a while now, its an odd feeling. Curious to see what a couple billion Yen and a goat for a coach can get you though. By my count, this leaves just 6 sekitori from that banzuke (Takayasu, Tochinoshin, Kaisei, Sadanoumi, Takafuji and with impressive levels of doing just enough, the 36 year old Okinoumi).

    I think this Twitter post has the commercial referenced-

    ^ Same, really. If nothing else, I'll always remember this match of his that occurred not too long after I started watching https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6wdBMyZUWgM

    Ryuden Scandal

    I'm not sure if "to be shin-juryo you have to beat an Ozeki" necessarily follows from that line of thinking. The exchange bouts work because to be juryo, you have to beat a struggling guy the bottom of juryo, not somebody well above your current level.

    Does this weird commercial count? https://twitter.com/stooloots/status/1395826041172729860

    Trivia bits

    Interesting career Onishiki had. Following his first and only appearance in the sanyaku, he managed both 7 kinboshi and 3 Juryo+1 Makushita yusho. A bit all over the place.

    I'd argue an obvious Yokozuna candidate not making it due to injuries is just as, if not more, sour. We'll never get to see what could have been with a healthy Yokozuna Terunofuji, but somehow we may get to see him wear the rope anyways. Regardless of how that potential tenure ends, I think he'd always be remembered as the guy that made Ozeki, dropped to nowhere and managed to not only fight back but even surpass his old self.

    Reminds me a little bit of the Bill Masterton death. He got checked hard (but legally) during an NHL game and crumpled while hitting his head on the ice (in the days before mandatory helmets). Made it to a hospital, but eventually died of the brain injuries. The guy who had the hit would later meet with Masterton's family, who said it was fluke accident and they didn't blame him. Despite that, he would say the incident was always in the back of his mind and "It bothers you the rest of your life."

    Actually not so concise rikishi talk

    Now I'm just imagining him trying to wrestle in a suit of armor.

    2021 "Kozumo" Hatsu Basho discussion thread

    I seem to recall the person getting the first bye in a 9-way playoff can't also get the second one, but can't remember where that came from to confirm...

    Happy to see Bushozan not completely collapse after that 3-0 start. Hopefully its enough to sneak in, if he's going to use 2/3 of my name he might as well be good
