    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.

    Terunofuji is the 73rd Yokozuna.

    Just quickly back to the shiranui vs unryu debate...does anyone here really think that Terunofuji is destined for a long career at yokozuna? He's just a temporary stop over so Hakuho can retire and Endo can 'get gud' and become the next Yokozuna and revitalize the sumo wrestler butt body pillow industry.

    Wait, wait, wait! It's like 2k to be a sponsor? And you get seats for that price? Just for one day, or multiple days?

    Hey. The five days are up. Go home, people.

    Sumo and the Olympics

    What ever happened to that guy's mawashi? Was it recovered? Or his preserved rabbit bits, at least?

    Sumo and the Olympics

    I think the steps were supposed to be... 1. Sumo at the Olympics! 2. ....mumble mumble... 3. Sumo is now available on TV for international audiences for FREE! And sumo forum members get free tickets to every basho, airfare included!!

    That was not comedic gold. I hope they kept their day jobs. Oh, wait...

    Konishiki’s House Up For Sale

    Sheesh. Couldn't he have waited until the Canadian dollar was doing better than the USD? I'll have to pass this time.

    Bright colored mawashi, Ura among them...

    What makes you think he doesn't? He's the Mick Jagger of osumo digests.

    "The new fences include a life-sized samurai"... which is somehow better than ?

    Nothing shows up for me, either. I'd hate to think that Seiyashi is intimating Kintamayama might lack a certain je ne sais quoi?

    Bright colored mawashi, Ura among them...

    But first he must travel to the end of the Yellow Brick Paywall. And along the way, he shall meet three companions, one who desires Fighting Spirit, one who desires Outstanding Performance, and one who desires better Technique! And though the YDC will try to stop him, in the end Kintamayama will reach the Emerald Database and present the Wizard with his request. But the Wizard only agrees if Kintamayama fetches the Wizard Hakuho's latest controversy to quell his interbasho boredom. And so...

    Aran was Alan, which was just Alan pronounced with a Japanese accent. As a foreigner watching sumo, I thought it was hilarious and sly that he was able to use his name as his shikona. From the east, the Almighty Noble Mountain! And on the west, it's Alan!

    Hakuhou caught watching Judo

    We could all chip in and buy some kensho banner that read something like: "Oi, what happened to the judo scandal, eh?"

    I hear at Hollywood parties they line up rows of poppy seeds and lick them right off the table.

    I still think Aran takes the cake for choice of shikona.

    Have you EVEN TRIED a poppy seed bagel?? There is no such thing as 'trace amounts' once you start. It's all or nothing. No survivors. A bakers dozen down.

    That gives us FIVE DAYS to speculate! We can get this threads power level to over 20 pages.

    Hakuhou caught watching Judo

    They're probably just worried that if Hakuho watches judo, he might decide to expand his obviously limited technical repertoire and become a serious contender.

    I've learned that drug test will be orally administered. Kyokai: "Did you do drugs?" Rikishi: "No." Kyokai: "Okay. Let us know if that changes."

    Sumo and the Olympics

    I think the sumo association gave up too easily. ANY even can be a sumo event with the correct mind set. So get out there, gambarize a little, and yorikiri some badminton folks.
