  4. It’s Tanabata and time to write down your wishes. The rikishi's wishes were posted on the Dolphin's Arena's (where the Nagoya basho is held) front entrance, in their own handwriting.

    Terunofuji "Please let me get through the 15 days safely"

    Takakeishou:  "Yusho."

    Shoudai "Escaping Kadoban."

    Mitakeumi : "4th yusho."

    Tochinoshin "World peace."

    Chiyotairyuu "I want a Rolex Daytona!"

    Ichiyamamoto: "Hachiyamamoto (8 yamamoto instead of 1-yamamoto, alluding of course to the eight wins he needs for a kachikoshi..)

    Akua: "I want to eat as many sweets as possible.."

    Is that how a ceremonial pitch looks like, or was it a custom event given the number of big names around? Doesn't seem like some of the ceremonial first pitches I've seen e.g. Mitakeumi do previously.

    Part of the "Tokyo Unite" movement- sports stars from all Tokyo teams from all kinds of sports come together- I don't know why ex-Hakuhou was regarded as a "Tokyo thing" but that's beside the point.


  6. Abi had 7 bouts at home today, facing Makushita opponents and going 5-2.  He is facing the Yokozuna on day 1 (unless he isn't..). "It's the Yokozuna- he is technically better and stronger than me -  strategy won't help much. All I can do is hit with all my might, and do my best to take advantage of anything that comes my way. I will not give up till the end," he said.  He got his makekoshi on the final day last basho. "Of course, part of it is that I'm not stroganoff, but my opponents have got me figured out. I need to change something. I'm going in too high," he added, checking out old videos of ex- Chiyonofuji and ex-Kisenosato who also went in high to see if he can learn something from them.

    Nice copyright trap. Onosho also doesn't face Nishikifuji or Nishikigi in the first 2 days.

    Should have read "looking forward to facing his good friend Nishikifuji this basho." No copyright trap, just screwing up more and more day by day.  There is no copyright to infringe upon, as I am translating stuff. Well, attempting to anyway. Sorry about that. And Scott has full permission, he's a nice guy -too bad  I let him down as well..


  8. Isegahama judging chief on the Ozeki camp: "I hope they don't do sumo that shames the Ozeki rank. They should man up and do Ozeki sumo, " he said. All three Ozeki face tough opponents on day 1. "Truth be told, I'm not expecting anything from them.. It's been like this for a while now-I'd say a year. Ozeki is the rank closest to Yokozuna. I want them to properly do their own sumo and aim for Yokozuna. I'm pretty sure they want that as well, but the results don't show that.. I want them to rediscover their own sumo. As for Wakatakakage and his Ozeki promotion chances, he wasn't looking that great last basho. He has to get more stable results. As for Asanoyama, well, Sandanme is Sandanme. He should just seriously do his own sumo and I think he'll be fine.." said Isegahama Oyakata.

    Is Onosho healthy for this basho? I haven't seen anything about him training (unless I missed it).

    I'm glad you asked-he is returning form a fractured rib injury and has been training. He faces his good friend Nishikifuji the newbie on day 1. "We've been friends since high school and have faced each other numerous times, so I'm really glad," he said. They grew up together and he even slept over at Nishikifuji's place, as he was living at a dormitory at the time while Nishikifuji lived in his own house. "His mother took care of me back then and I am grateful," explained Ounoshou. He trained at home today against three Makushita rikishi and was 22-3. "I have been properly doing what I should be doing," he divulged. He was injured last basho on day 5 in his bout against Takakeishou. '"As we fell, he hit my ribs with his knee. I was afraid of possible internal injuries so I took the rest of the basho off. At first the pain was so intense I had problems lying down, so I sat.. Every time I coughed or sneezed or laughed the pain was excruciating. I even slept sitting down at times," he added. He slowly got better and by the time the degeiko commenced at the beginning of June he was ready to go. He also  lost 10 kilos at some point and now weighs around 160. "It doesn't matter who I'm facing, I will do my best and if I  can concentrate day by day I think I will do well," he summed.

  11. Addendum- Kiribayama also spoke about his weight. "I'm about 140 kilos. Should I up it to 145? Looking at my Oyakata (ex-Kirishima) he was quite well built and around that weight. I don't see any point in needlessly putting on weight. Watching his old bouts, I'm convinced I don't need to put on any more kilos.. I will gambarize while aiming to be like my Oyakata in his active days (muscles and all). I'm not there yet, but I hope to get there," he said.
