    Field trip to Musashigawa

    Visited Musashigawa beya today as Konishiki's guest. Excellent asageiko, very serious even though it's mid basho. Not all out, but the boys were serious anyway. We even had some chanko and other stuff. Musashimaru is a totally relaxed and good humored person. Most of the time I couldn't believe I was there, talking sumo with these guys. It was another experience.

    Natsu basho 2019 discussions [SPOILERS]

    Someone sent me a message saying he would like to buy me a ticket to the basho as a token of appreciation for my channel. I said OK and we met at the entrance. It turns out he is a young Mongolian living in Japan we had a great time. Last night I had dinner with a couple from Pourtsmouth whom I never met before, who found my channel as well. The kkan was definitely not sold out., but I'd say there were at least a thousand seats empty. Maybe people just didn't show up but they were quite a lot. The second half of Makuuchi was exciting. Juryo was pretty boring except when Aminishiki and Toyonoshima mounted. I got a bit closer than last time but still got dizzy from the heights of the sights. Tomorrow I should have some news about something fun.. Tokyo is great.

    Natsu basho 2019 discussions [SPOILERS]

    Fun day at the kkan. Even met a forum member. My seat was so up high in the bleachers my eyes went home before me. Atmosphere was fantastic as far as I could tell without much oxygen up there in the mountains. Tochinoshin, Enhou, Aoyama, Tskakeishou and Abi made me shout out loud. Yumitorishiki was awesome. The udon near the stadium was in the soup. Good weather.

    YDC May soken

    And I translated an article, where Kitanofuji said all that, according to a Japanese reporter. I'm pretty sure the "tongue in cheek"iness came through quite clearly, as Kitanofuji was clearly taking the piss at some point. The word "complaining" was used a few times by the reporter.

    YDC May soken

    Because he is an ex-Yokozuna and the foremost tv sumo commentator and is well respected and can do whatever he wants, including showing up at the soken, though I'm sure he was invited.

    In the capacity of him being Kitanofuji.

    YDC May soken

    The closed- to -the -public soken was held today at the KKan. Kitanofuji commentator was not happy with what he saw. At the end, the top 8 guys (without Hakuhou) faced each other. Goueidou was 9-2, Kakuryuu was 9-3, and Takakeishou was 3-8. Takaysu 5-11. "Kakuryuu and Goueidou stood out. The rest sucked . I expected more from Takakeishou, it being a new era and all. I thought he would be more genki. This ain't morning keiko.. I wanted to see better keiko," he said. He didn't like the rest of what he saw either. "I don't like to start the new era with my grumbling but I came with high expectations and was greatly disappointed. I planned on keeping quiet for the new era but all I can do is complain from the start. Not one thing good about today. It was like an all night vigil over a body.. Really quiet.." he added. "I heard Takayasu trained against ex-Kisenosato and went 1-20. If Kisenosato would turn up for this basho, he would be my number 1 candidate for the yusho..Hakuhou? He was an excellent coach today. It's as if he's the rijicho.. From what I saw, no way is he going to enter. But who knows? If he does enter, he will win. It seems it would be enough if he should appear three times a year, no? He's going to win those anyway, wherever he has pains.. I guess I'll be called out to the Kyokai's offices tomorrow," he sighed, ending his tirade.

    Preparations of the Y/O- Natsu 2019

    I agree with this totally.

    Preparations of the Y/O- Natsu 2019

    I disagree-all it says is "he is coming at me with all kinds of stuff," not necessarily attacks. So we disagree again..

    Where is there any mention of an attack?

    Nothing is more relevant than arguing.
