    Oh, man. I remember that. I believe I snorted my 酒.

    I exercised my electoral powers. It felt kind of weird picking out Goeidou as the top prospect on a poll, but here we are. The future is a crazy place.

    Takakeisho injury update

    Maybe he'll get lucky and face Goeidou 10 times this tournament?

    Would you throw the Zabuton???

    I typically go watch in Fukuoka, and it's difficult to lob the zabuton because...I feel like I made a post about this? I DID!

    Next Yokozuna??????

    Please do not mistake my comment for an endorsement.

    Next Yokozuna??????

    As self-appointed director of the Sumoforum.net Goeidou fan club, I feel obligated to remind you all that Ozeki Goeidou exists.

    Osunaarashi scandal

    Maybe he's getting a drivers license.

    Dangerously close to the third rail...

    Does anyone know why Akebono was chosen to do the dohyo iri over Takanohana? I mean, geez - Takanohana had 18 yusho at that point, to Akebono's 9, and he was a solid yokozuna. Was it simply because Takanohana was injured at the end of Hatsu 1998? He annoyed the YDC too much? It always seemed odd to me that Akebono was favoured for the role. And, you see, with how much the organization has complained about Hakuho's antics recently, I can kind of envision this shit show errupting where, say, newcomer yokozuna Mitakeumi suddenly gets the nod for the Olympics and two days later his body is discovered near a bloody karaoke remote.

    How will this era end?

    I kind of expected either Goeidou or Takayasu to take advantage of the current power gap and get the rope. Goeidou isn't any younger than Hakuho or Kakuryu, but he's demonstrated in the past that he can step up at the right time and he's won before. Takayasu hasn't won, but is 4 years their junior and has been steady in the sanyaku. The past year seemed like it would be a gift to them but...I guess years of battling genuinely tough opposition has left them as chronically injured as the current yokozuna. Goeidou, especially. I mean, he could probably string together two jun-yusho and they'd tie a rope around it and shower him in magic fish.

    I disbelieved you about Mitakeumi. But I looked it up and it's true. This kid had seriously better get his crap together or else I'm going to start a Mitakeumi fan club.

    The young generation (japanese rikishi only)

    Even Onosho's picture looks disappointed in his performance.

    What rikishi do you miss the most?

    I miss Harumafuji because I feel that right now there isn't a rikishi that quite emulates his style of wrestling.

    Nagoya 2019 Discussion (here be spoilers)

    I suspect that Onosho is simply demonstrating regression back to the mean. I, too, have noticed that whenever Hakuho doesn't win, someone else seems to win. I've tried to notify the local papers of this conspiracy but they don't appear to be taking me seriously.
