    Pictures at an Exhibition

    This pic was in my newspaper today. However, the comment said: "grand champion Buyuzan ;-) lifting up some children"

    Akebono leaves for Wrestlemania

    From WWE.com: Big Show had never been in a Sumo Match before. And his inexperience clearly hurt him. Akebono, a former Grand Champion, defeated Show at WrestleMania, using his experience and savvy to toss Show out of the circle and ultimately the ring. After a long standoff to start the match, Show held his own for a few minutes, even lifting the giant Akebono off his feet, before Akebono was able to gain some leverage and send 493 pounds of Big Show flying. Big Show and Akebono exchanged a respectful handshake after the match as Show was humble in defeat.

    Kensho Standings (Haru 2005)

    I think that on the final day of the basho, the winners of the last 3 matches recieve arrows, a bow string and a bow respectivly. Normally the first of those 3 matches is a Sekiwake vs Sekiwake-bout, so Hakuho got the arrows. I think it has nothing to do with the number of kensho placed on the match.

    Sushi and Kaiten-zushi!

    I just spent the weekend in Paris and had the chance to eat some sushi at a fine Japanese Restaurant near the "Arc de Triomphe". I liked it very much (Sign of approval) and will be eating more sushi in the future!! ps: nothing tops a Valentine's day at Paris with your partner (Dribbling...)

    KaioU's destiny

    Just wondering...

    Chiyonofuji precedent

    There are some differences too. Chiyonofuji was a yokozuna with 31 Yusho and over 1000 wins under his belt, with nothing more to prove. KaioU is (or was) chasing Yokozuna promotion and still has to prove he can remain focussed when it matters most. Even so, I too believe KaioU should consider retiring when he loses tomorrow...

    Day 3 results and day 4 pairings

    Kotonowaka is going to annihilate all his opponents and retire as a sekiwake!! Too bad for KaioU, I don't see him winning all of his remaining bouts this tournament... :'-(

    Forum demographics strike again!

    I am interested in hom many different languages each forum member speaks. At home, I speak Dutch (Flemisch) At work, I speak French (since most of my collegues and "clients" only speak this language) At this forum I use the English language I try my best to speak German I hope to learn Japanese somewhere in the future My dog understands what I want without me even speaking to him (and vice versa!) How about you??
