    Aki Basho 2021 - Discussion Thread (Spoilers!)

    Okay, let's say Mitakeumi defies statistics and his own talent and goes 13-2, to jun-yusho Terunofuji. That puts him at 31 wins over three tournaments. Could he get the ozeki nod? The answer is no. And I'm mostly posting this because it'll quite probably make Mitakeumi lose tonight, rendering all discussion moot.

    Fortunately, Terunofuji has got another 75 more kimarite to choose from before he is forced to start losing to Hokutofuji.

    But then he got promoted and the YDC was all, "You can't go using your secret Mongolian bionic terror eye lasers on opponents anymore because it's un-yokozuna-like".

    Aki Yusho Predictions?

    Oh. Sure! The yusho pick is easy...once Hakuho is out of the basho. Us early Hakuho pickers aren't going to take this lying down. We are going to form a posse. And we're gonna drive on down to your house, and we're going watch some sumo with you. And we're going to heckle Terunofuji for 2 hours in the form of Broadway musical revue while you watch, helpless to stop us, and the worst songs get stuck in your head. How do you like that now, punk!?

    Miyagino beya out of Aki

    That is correct.

    The real truth is that Hakuho is suddenly vulnerable thanks to Shonanzakura's unexpected intai.

    And they took away his weed.

    Takagenji Caught Smoking Weed

    It hear it happened during the Nagoya basho. I imagine he'll be joining his brother in MMA soon.

    We'll always have Shohozan.

    Aki Yusho Predictions?

    I think Hakuho takes it again, Shodai jun yusho.

    Hattorizakura (Shounanzakura)-intai

    Oh! If Hakuho retires next tournament, that is PROOF that Hakuho used forbidden Mongolian magics to create a sumo simulacrum that protected Hakuho from suffering losses. With his final horcrux gone following Shonanzakura's intai, the dai yokozuna is now vulnerable to defeat.

    We've got 14 days to bring the topic back around to sumo. I'm sure we'll get there. And yes, Brodi's dad had posted on here. I think that's how he initially got in touch with John, who helped make introductions.

    Hattorizakura (Shounanzakura)-intai

    Not that I want to pry into his personal life, but I was always curious about his story. It seemed like there had to be more to his being there than simply a love of sumo, because sumo life ain't exactly grand and he wasn't exactly getting better. So why stick around for so long? Though, to be fair, I've trained people who weren't ever getting better at their job and clearly didn't like being there, either, but a pay cheque is motivation I can understand.
