    No idea.. Perhaps a youtube problem,as I uploaded it as usual.
  3. Hot Nagoya? Arena air condition in bad condition..

    Shifting venues is not an option. Too many local families are dependent upon these once a year local bashos for their living. Too many traditions, too many "persons" involved. It will never happen. Not only that, the possibility of moving them is not even hinted at. I remember when they had that under 50% attendance rate not so long ago and we discussed it here, at some point we became worried about our pinkies and stopped talking about it altogether, while whistling loudly.. So because of the heat? No way. Ever.

    I've had a complaint that my videos break up and generally are technically inferior.. Is anyone else having any problems watching? I am befuddled. If so, please let me know so I may seek a solution.

  8. Hot Nagoya? Arena air condition in bad condition..

    Yesterday, 4 ice pillars were placed in strategic positions in the arena, together with 22 electric fans.The pillars were placed east, west, north and south to make a perfect balance and cool air was felt around the dohyo. The air conditioning itself, which failed a day before, was working well,. emergency measures notwithstanding. Pillars of society under the bleachers:

    Day 8- Nakabi:
  11. In the sweltering heat of Nagoya and during a serious heatwave, the Dolphin Arena air conditioning system broke down, it was announced. The Executive Committee met yesterday to check out measures in case the system collapses entirely. Electric fans and coolers were being considered. After two and a half hours of discussions, it was announced that the system has been fixed, and the meeting was adjourned. Yesterday during Juryo it was reported that the AC system was not working properly. "The cooler is a joke," said TV commentator Kitanofuji, who was commentating for the radio yesterday, to the press. 225 kilo Ichinojou said "It's hot" many times and looked completely exhausted. The Nagoya arena is famous for its "fans with fans" even when the AC is working, so I guess it must have been very comfortable yesterday for everyone.

  14. Rikishi Status Nagoya 2018

    Interview: Q: What is the status of your injury? A: Last night I iced it for hours and the pain resided a bit, but this morning the toe was swollen more than yesterday. It is very painful and I cant step on it. Q: The moment you were injured? A: When i was thrown I felt my knee snap and when I fell, hurt my right toe. Q:Diagnosis? A: I had an MRI and there are no broken bones. The ligament seems to be a bit strained. Q: With all Yokozuna out, your responsibility as a new Ozeki was high.. A : I wanted to do sumo but this is inexcusable. It's regrettable, but I don't want to do "strange" sumo and in my current condition, I can't exert any power. Q: Is there any chance you may return this basho? A: I will return to Tokyo and get checked out in a hospital there as well, but in any case I will be icing the injury for 2-3 days and if it does get better, I would like to re-enter.
  15. Hot entrance change-Nagoya

    The rikishi will not be entering the stadium from the main entrance as is customary in Nagoya from tomorrow. Due to the very extreme heat , there have been cases of fans getting a heatstroke and passing out and being taken to a hospital in an ambulance. The fans like to watch their favorite guys come walking in and can stand for hours in the blazing sun waiting to get a glimpse of them. "This is part of the fan service, but regretfully, we will be suspending it for the coming week and the rikishi will enter from another entrance. We apologize," said Hakkaku rijicho.
