I understand I have to post at least once before I become a full-fledged member. I actually joined the forum a number of years ago, but my account seems to have been deleted (from disuse, not misuse). I've been a member of the mailing list since the mid-90s. I picked up a lot of good info from Abe-san, watched flame wars with Kawika play out, read Kintamayama's hilarious summaries of the matches, etc. In fact, Abe-san helped me come up with my moniker, 双輪山, which is supposed to mean two wheels on the mountain, or mountain biker. (If you have any good pictures of rikishi on bikes, please send them my way. I've searched the net from time to time, but there's not much there.)
Without actually seeing the matches, it's hard to make any intelligent comments (or unintelligent, for that matter). So it's nice to have the goo sumo feed these days, as well as youtube highlights. Thanks to all who make those happen.
