    Food Prizes

    I know Fukushima is not a small prefecture, but I'm always curious about how they are addressing the radioactive fallout when they're handing out these bursaries, and whether heyas would actually want to use the goods they received.

    Naruto beya-new violence..

    Maybe it means that they've only been a temporary inconvenience and therefore the fine is reduced.

    Kisenosato intai

    He had over a year to slim down.

    Kisenosato intai

    I think in the spirit of Kisenosato we should take 8 basho to reach a decision on whether to move this thread to Ozumo Discussions.

    Hatsu Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    I don't think Tamawashi, Takakeisho and Mitakeumi are particularly great rikishi yet, but I don't think they'll have to be. Tochinoshin, Goeidou, and Takayasu are hardly the most intimidating line up of ozeki, Hak seems content to compete just enough for longevity, and Kakuryu has been nursing chronic injuries for years. If 2 out of 3 of these guys aren't Ozeki by the end of Nagoya, I'll be genuinely surprised.

    Okay, new up-and-comers, yay. But the real news this tournament is that for the first time in, like, 2019, Goeidou was one of the top performing Ozeki/Yokozuna. Being one win off Hakuho's pace isn't shabby, not to mention stealing a victory from the dai-yokozuna himself. And, hey, how about that kachi koshi? #goeidouwatch2019

    I could see the reticence for promoting Takakeisho, since in his 9-6 result at Komusubi he failed to beat anyone of merit among the joi. But if he grabs another yusho here, I think that makes a strong case that there are no longer people of merit in the joi, and the NSK should crown him and give him truffles and coca cola for life. Or a year. Whichever comes first, really.

    That's the only conceivable way that Gagamaru could pull off a wicked awesome win like that.

    Acceptable Ozeki Record?

    Takanohana deleted the thread with a karaoke remote and blamed it on Harumafuji because of the OBSC. Also, the answer is 8 wins, but it should be 10 wins; therefore, 9 wins is acceptable, except for when it's 11 wins to qualify.

    They let some rikishi fight despite them only having a single decent move, so they ought to let a rikishi fight with only a single decent eye. It's only fair.

    Man, I got here late. All the good comments are taken.

    Takanoiwa hits his tsukebito

    He couldn't possibly do worse that Osunaarashi.

    Takanoiwa hits his tsukebito

    Maybe they'll retire Takanohana a second time for good measure.

    That would be absolutely awesome.

    Takanohana resigns

    You cannot truly appreciate Sumo until you've heard it in the original Klingon.
