    Enho - predictions?

    What does any rikishi say to themselves when they get injured? Who knows. Probably some variation of "Curse my luck!" Mitakeumi gets pushed up sideways on the tawara. Messes up his knee. Tomokaze falls off the dohyo and lands on one stiff leg. Kotenage has hurt more than a few. Superstition is strong in the NSK. Maybe it's because bad luck is more of a problem than being less than a giant.

    How many big men have also succumbed to injury? Takanohana, Musashimaru, Kisenosato...the list is long.

    Corona and sumo

    +194 cases since yesterday. 1709 and rising. It has taken off. Abe's conference last night was the final denial.

    New ozeki Asanoyama

    The older gentleman is the former Director of the Kinki University Sumo Club, Katsuhito Ito, who passed away in January. The other may be the former manager of Toyama's Shogyo high school sumo club, who passed a couple years ago.

    Akebono - last chance

    Things have been hard for the former yokozuna #64. Still pulling for his recovery.

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    He had heart surgery a couple years ago, and it does appear he is in generally poor health these days. He will be 78 in less than a week, and signs of mental decline are creeping in. It's sad, but for such a star he has had a very good run.
