    Trump coming to the basho

    it would be cool if Alec Baldwin get there ahead of Trump and present the yusho trophy on his behalf. https://youtu.be/8vQlhWBvAwY

    Trump coming to the basho

    I cannot recall a head of state, perhaps some CEO presenting a new trophy/prize. I do fondly recall Paul McCartney and his wife sitting on masu-seki at the Fukuoka basho in the 90s.

    Games Bugs

    Does anyone know if the BenchSumo game has closed? The Basho Entry Form button is grayed, so it seems like it is. I was just hoping it has a bug too, so I might still enter.
  7. Is the BenchSumo closed already for next week's basho?

      dude!  how's things man?  I am working out of bangkok, what a blast!  hey, 2 questions.  what time is the cutoff for daily entires and how can i confirm i am entered into this basho?

      seems like i cannot enter day 1 picks, figure i am late.

      seems like i can still entry the basho, cause that link works.

    Is this round 2 or round 3? If so, I’m not droning for either. Please see our two PM thread on June 15. MAEDEN

    Favorite J-Pop Bands

    and i didn't learn my lesson, Scandal is here in September, going GA again. one advantage, cause i will go solo, it is much easy to socialize in GA.

    Favorite J-Pop Bands

    it was a pretty good show. general admission you didn't see so much of the girls, but the band has a killer sound!

    Heya sizes

    after watching John's interview with Akebono, one question came to mind. what is the largest heya, in the number of rikishi. Akebono shares that in the old days a stable could have a 100 rikishi and there were fewer stables....
  14. i will be in the Big Mikan, aka Tokyo, this summer. anyone wanna have chankonabe near Ryogoku on say June 14th?
