    Hakuho retires

    There's a expression for this photo in Portuguese: "cara de bunda" (something alike but not exactly "assface"). It's a face os forced smile in a situation where you would not smile at all.

    Not Yokozuna Sumo - not by Hakuho. Nor Kachiage or Nodowa.

    Nagoya Basho 2021

    He's not human - he's a Yokozuna. He isn't just a "professional athlete" and sumo isn't only a "sport". The elbows and slaps in the tachiai are also disrespectful (and that bazai! chant).

    What's the chance of Teru getting The Rope? I hope it was a done deal - a Y and J (being a Y contender until the end) as Ozeki and Y, J, D before that.

    Nagoya Basho 2021

    What I can say? It was an ugly fight. Ugliness is somewhat subjective to each sport, but I think that after 10y I'm starting to understand "not yokozuna sumo". In football a goal is a goal, but a goal made using the shoulders or even arms to deslocate other players ou even a legal "cart behind" is uglier than one made with class and jinga. After the first slap the fight grow cold to me and I heartly desired for a Terunofuji win.

    Nagoya Basho 2021

    Mostly because of the "International Olympic Committee" (and all the money from the sponsros) - the Tokyo city has no power to suspend the Olympics by itself.

    Bout-Length Nagoya 2021

    so far, 01.1s M12e Tochinoshin (1-4) tsukiotoshi M10w Terutsuyoshi (1-4) 69.1s M8e Takarafuji (3-2) tsukiotoshi M9w Shimanoumi (2-3) are the two extremes

    YDC meeting after Haru 2021

    Hakuho wants to do the dohyo-iri in the Olympics and the Kyokai needs a Yokozuna to do the dohyo-iri in the Olympics. So I believe an Intai for him after Nagoya and before Aki.
