    Takanoiwa hits his tsukebito

    For 30 000 yen you can have a cut at Takanoiwa's mage and an invitation to the party in the kokugikan afterwards, about 100 fans from the general public are targeted. At Baruto's danpatsu-shiki, this option was sold for 100 000yen to just 10 male members from the general public, so it's cheap - and women are invited as well - not on the dohyo, but with some extra measures (attached ramp or below). Takanoiwa had consented to the idea. To 250-300 related people, invitations have been sent by Chiganoura-beya - the oyakata wants to limit it to 400 people in all. It remains to be seen if Taka keeps his promise and won't meet with Takanoiwa for 10 years or if he'll come to the danpatsu-shiki. http://www.zakzak.co.jp/spo/news/190114/spo1901140002-n1.html

    Day 3 pics overview Hatsu 2019

    This and many more days of pics this basho will likely stay just as this overview - we don't have enough members in the pic posting team now, and I don't think I'll ever have the time to do those days later.

    Hatsu Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    The best reason ever for a henka - Terutsuyoshi (from Harumafuji's heya) vs. Takagenji "I had the feeling that the god(s) of sumo told me not to go straight on," - after a false start where he made Takagenji fall on his backside and likely got him angry: "because he might fly into rage and come at me, he's scary then" http://www.daily.co.jp/general/2019/01/15/0011981438.shtml
