    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?"

    Takagenji Caught Smoking Weed

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

    Bright colored mawashi, Ura among them...

    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.

    Hakuhou caught watching Judo

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

    Sir Not Appearing In This Film.

    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.

    Takagenji Caught Smoking Weed

    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.

    Terunofuji is the 73rd Yokozuna.

    Now that Terunofuji has gained the rank, I look forward to endless discussions on the forums about his perceived hinkaku.

    Bright colored mawashi, Ura among them...

    Customer review - Bright colored mawashi 1 out of 5 stars The title of this product led me to believe that I would be experiencing a "Where's Waldo" but with Ura hiding amongst colourful mawashi. When I opened the product thread, I was very unhappy to discover it was just a bunch of writing about other rikishi who wear colourful mawashi. There weren't even any pictures at all. Very disappointed. Would not purchase again.

    Nagoya Basho 2021

    History supports the notion that Terunofuji is the more likely to henka in crucial matches. OH! OH! MAYBE WE WILL GET A DOUBLE HENKA!?!?!? It's like double rainbow but waaaay more fun.

    My money is on Hakuho.

    Shoot. This plan has holes in it.

    Nagoya Basho 2021

    No, Hakuho needs Terunofuji to get the rope so he can outlast him until November and nudge that "outlasted junior yokozuna" counter to five.

    I feel bad because I clearly jinxed Takayasu.

    Trivia bits

    And he might still have time to squeeze in a fourth...

    Nagoya Basho 2021

    It seems likely that Takayasu will secure his kachikoshi, which I think is impressive given that it seemed possible he'd miss the tournament entirely. It's feels unlikely that he'll beat either Hakuho or Terunofuji, though, so he's probably topping off at a maximum 9 wins. Don't think that'll help his re-promotion chances all that much, but I've liked his fighting spirit.

    Chonmage after intai?

    It's a little known fact that moto-Takatoriki is the NSK's current shadow enforcer of the chonmage rule. Together with his hand-picked squad of Barberians, they scour the country-side seeking out violators of the Imperial edict. The last thing you'll hear is a 'snip' before he hands you a mirror and asks "How does it look?"

    And the Mongolian wrestlers hold an average of 7 yusho each!

    Ikioi retires

    As a moderately-avid Pokemon Go player, I've got about a dozen Hariyama all named for Yokozuna...

    Nagoya Yusho Predictions?

    I'd love to see it, too, because it means that Hakuho made it through a whole basho.

    Preparations of the masses- Nagoya 2021

    Many thanks. I blame a lack of vitamins. Fortunately, these Calbee chips have all the vitamins and nutrients a sumo fan needs! If they're good enough for Takakeisho, they're good enough for me!

    DIdn't we use to have a thread dedicated to sumo CM? Am I misremembering the term?
