    But those guys are rolling in dough! Okay, they're making dough? Fine, they're making mochi. For free.

    His pirouettes on the edge of the ring were always a thing of beauty.

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Asanoyama wasn't seasoned enough to avoid putting his arm out to brace while Kakuryu went into that dive with both hands on his opponent's belt, trusting in shinto spirits and his little acorn bob to prevent severe trauma. Asanoyama was the aggressor up to that point. But in the final moments, it was clearly Kakuryu in control.

    I'm genuinely surprised that Aoiyama is facing Hakuho.

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    If someone had told me at the start of the basho that Aioyama and Hakuho would be tied on day 12, I would have assumed they meant that Hakuho would have withdrawn from the tournament around day 6.

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    On a day of mediocre sumo, the mono-ii is often the highlight of the sumo party as my friends and I all take turns providing the over-dubbed dialogue. A close second is "Towel Watch", whereupon we opine sagaciously on the order in which a rikishi chooses to wipe themselves with their towel.

    Mitakeumi does look like he's well on his way to his 7 wins.

    Nope. Only immediate kyujo for both of them will suffice. And Hakuho has to give me a car, too.

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    When a yokozuna is performing no better than Aoiyama, it's clearly time for them to retire.

    Ugh. Next you'll tell us the cafeteria won't be serving chanko.

    I think the piece of information that flabbergasted me the most was: They have an orchestra there?!?!

    I really want to see a CGI crowd made entirely of Gold Hat guys.

    Does anyone know a good VPN for attending physical venues?

    Ozekis and Yokozunas for January 2021 - let them rise up!

    Y Takakeisho O Asanoyama Mitakeumi level of ambition has convinced me that he can fill the void left by Goeidou's retirement, but it will take until the second basho of 2021 for him to get the mercy promotion.
