    @Swami i totally agree, i prefer paper. Clyde seems to still print a limited number, i think this makes him quality for a press card from NSK. I might have a duplicate or two post 2002. let me know, happy to send any duplicates to you. i wanted to get something on Instagram, so hence the back cover pictures.

    Shiko by everyone

    that's a lot of shiko! supposedly one of the most important exercises in sumo. does anyone know that the expected shiko per day that a rikishi is suppose to do. for some reason the number 100 pops up in my mind....

    they usually look sharp in a suit. i found that the hardest part is that they have no clue on how to put on a tie.
