    Corona and sumo

    Nishonoseki Ichimon has canceled its rengo-keiko in Osaka which was slated to be open to the public due to the Corona outbreak.

    Coronavirus in China

    Yes, no symptoms but I have asthma and I had a cough and I'm over 65 so they allowed it. Today, they tightened the criteria again- they are changing the criteria on a weekly basis. A cough and a fever over 38 and you get tested.

    Coronavirus in China

    I took the test. I just got the results - I'm OK.

    Coronavirus in China

    I'm out of work since March 9th. When things will get back to normal eventually (3 months at least, I am being told) my sector will be the last back in, as people will probably not feel comfortable congregating in groups of more than 50.. I'm screwed but have some savings. The government is helping out a bit, not nearly enough but better than nothing. And I'm in the danger group of affection. Happy times.

    Aminishiki injured/ Intai

    Aminishiki rebooted his blog today, writing about his deliberations concerning his danpatsushiki, slated for October 4th. He says he may have to postpone it to after the Natsu basho 2021, or do it in June or July with a smaller crowd.

    Corona and sumo

    Only rikishi under 150 kilos?
  9. We don't even know if it's happening, but we will do our own sumo, moving forward, ever forward, taking it a bout a day, not thinking of the yusho race, and hoping everything will go as planned.. GTB. Please play. Rules: Guess the Banzuke. Simple. You get two points for a bulls-eye and one point for just getting the rank right. You get no points for thinking it's all over. Tiebreakers - Most total guesses, then we check the banzuke backwards - getting the lower half right will be important. The most correct guesses in the last ten places will win the tiebreaker. If still tied , we go up a ranking at a time like a penalty shootout. It's up to you to check if you are on the list of entries. It's going to be your fault if you don't notice that your entry went missing in the Internet void. No late entries will be expected or accepted. For rules, standings and videos: http://www.dichne.com/Guess.htm For the nifty entry form: http://sumodb.sumoga...b/GTBEntry.aspx For the "new" archives: http://sumodb.sumoga...gtbarchive.aspx Free online live sumo for foreign sumo fans as well!! http://inyourdreams-suckers.tv Special helper (hopefully) for your banzuke-making, courtesy of Tsuchinoninjin: http://sumoninjin.droppages.com/sumoHBcustom.html Deadline- Monday April 20th, 2020 at 18:00 GMT ("Get Mended, Takayasu!!") - PLEASE NOTE-THIS IS ONE WEEK BEFORE THE OFFICIAL BANZUKE ANNOUNCEMENT !! Special thanks to Andoreasu who runs it, Doitsuyama who automates and maintains it and to Enhou.

    How do you figure they are failing? 2178 cases so far is pretty good compared to the world.

    Yoshikaze situation

    Yoshikaze is considering postponing his danpatsushiki, slated to occur on October 3rd, because of the virus issue. "I'd like to have my danpatsushiki when everyone can attend at peace.. I am considering postponing it and when the final decision will be made I will notify everyone. I am praying for those that have contracted the disease and their families," he tweeted and posted on the danpatsushiki website.

    Yoshikaze situation

    I think this warrants a separate thread, as Yoshikaze's situation is pretty bad. Probably kyujo, far from fit, drop to Makushita, and he'll retire. It's not me speculating, but some online papers are pretty sure this is going to happen. We'll know in a couple of hours if he's out of the basho, and if he's out, probably sooner than later, an intai announcement.

    Kyokai Elections January 2020

    Already? Again? Yes indeed. The elections are coming. . Isegahama Ichimon met to discuss their candidates. 9 Oyakata of the 11 belonging to the Ichimon were present. . Two of them announced their candidacy. Current riji Takashima Oyakata and Isegahama Oyakata who was riji in 2017, until he resigned after the Harumafuji incident. Only one Oyakata from Isegahama can be chosen for the 10 member rijikai. It appears that of the 9 attending today, most were leaning towards Isegahama Oyakata. "Too early to say. The two oyakata who were missing are on Takashima's side. there will be some discussion during the basho and we will decide, " said an anonymous source who preferred to remain anonymous. So it seems the Ichimon will reconvene at some point to try to reach a unanimous decision. If they decide to go with 2 candidates, and that can happen, add that to the 2 apiece from Dewanoumi, Tokitsukaze, and Takasago and the 3 from Nishonoseki that would make 11 riji candidates. There are 10 places. So elections will be held. It happened before, of course.
