    Where Are You Now?

    I live in Belgium, but since I speak Dutch and Holland is not far away, I voted for the Netherlands. Loved the extra hour of sleep yesterday...

    Asashouryuu ill

    Good point. Like most of the former Yokozuna, their promotion occured in a time where there immediate concurrents were out or weak. =>examples: Asashoryu: retirement of Takanohana, Musashimaru very weak, the other Ozeki struggeling Musashimaru:all Yokozuna and Ozeki (except Takanonami) weak or not even in the basho. Wakanohana: sub-par performances of all Yokozona and Ozeki Akebono: no Yokozuna at all, other ozeki out So now, Kaio has to seize the opportunity, because: Asashoryu ill and struggeling Chiyotaikai struggeling and on a losing streak against Kaio Tochiazuma injured Musoyama near retirement and struggeling for 2 years :-/ The only danger for Kaio next basho are the lower Sanyaku, of whom only Kotomitsuki poses a threat. (7-6 versus Kaio). As you say, if he doesn't make it to Yokozuna now, he never will. I will be rooting for him 'tough. (Blushing...) ;-) :-P

    New Banzuke

    I agree with sekitori-san. I also ordered a banzuke (september basho) and got it 4 days after it was posted, and I live in Belgium, the other side of the world. Very reasonable price too, thanks again! (Clapping wildly...)

    KAIOU, the next Yokozuna?

    With this Basho for grabs, and all other Ozeki struggeling and the Yokozuna uncapable to hold his form, all Kaiou has to do now is keep on going, win tomorrow and say to Asashoryu: "move over, next year there' s gonna be two" (Enjoying a beer...)

    KAIOU, the next Yokozuna?

    Maybe the home-advantage is just what he needs next tournament to finally become Yokozuna. Let's hope his nerves will hold...

    KAIOU, the next Yokozuna?

    Only Kaiou and Tochinonada (in a playoff) can still win the yusho. Wakanosato is allready 2 wins behind Kaiou, with only 1 day remaining... And since Asa has allready lost 3 in a row, no problem for Kaiou ;-)

    I've been searching for sake for quite a while, but I can't find any in my country. I live in Belgium, perhaps that has something to do with it? Does anyone know where I could find it?

    Featured rikishi - Ichinoya

    How old is he?

    It was not sake used for cooking. I had almost bought such sake last week, but when I looked more closely the bottle said something about this sake being used in sauces etc.. The sake I bought last wednesday came from a Chinese supermarket and was placed next to other types of oriental drinks, such as lychee wine. Therefore I am quite sure it is regular sake. I allready tasted it and it was quite good. (Licking lips...) I also tried to order sake from internet sites, but as you stated, most are only available in the US, and the ones that can be bought here in Europe come at a very high shipping price (

    After a 2 week search I finally found some sake in my country: in a Chinese supermarket in Brussels. The sake itself was pretty cheap, medicore quality. Better than nothing I guess... ;-)

    Do you know if there is one of those supermarkets near Terneuzen? Other parts of Holland are pretty far to travel to for me... It surprizes me that supermarkets in Belgium don't have sake, in some they've never even heard of it.

    Sumo site worth the advertisement!

    Very interesting site indeed! (Laughing...)

    Why was Futahaguro forced to retire? Was he misbehaving as a Yokozuna?

    Leaderboard Day 14 Nagoya 2004

    Kaio, Toyozakura, Miyabiyama and Asasekeryu have to win at least 3 (Shaking head...) matches in a row tomorrow to win the Yusho. And I don't see Asashuryu losing twice on the same day. My guess is that it will be Asashoryu who wins the Yusho once again.

    Asashoryu - Kotonowaka matches

    According to me, Asashoryu was extremely lucky landig on his right foot following the throw by Kotonowaka. His staying in the air afterwards on the other hand was extremely impressing! Good decision by the umpires by calling it a rematch, altough the public didn't seem to agree, flinging cushions following Asashoryu's win.

    Kensho Standings (Nagoya 2004)

    I expect to see some kensho for Miyabiyama very soon...

    Day 1 things

    Nice performances indeed by Kokkai and Kotomitsuki. In my opinion Kotomitsuki has got a good chance of winning the Yusho if he stays in this form :-)
  22. Faustonowaka

    Pick your winner

    Who is going to be the winner of next tournament?? My guess is it's going to be Kotomitsuki

    Day 14 Makuuchi Torikumi

    Can someone tell me who was the last megashira who was never Sanyaku to win yusho? => The last one was Sandonoyama in may 1961 (M13West) One year before him, in may 1960, there was Daigo (Wakamisugi) (M4West)
