    Thank you all for sharing your pics and videos. This is really appreciated by those of us who can only watch from afar... :-D :-) :-) More? :-) :-D

    Tochiazuma's Promotion to Yokozuna

    I must admit that I agree with this... (Cloverleaf...)

    Rikhis Talk Senshuraku Haru Basho 2006

    Again, thanks you so much Jonosuke for these translations... (Clapping wildly...) (Sign of approval) I (and for sure, other non-Japanese speaking forum members) really appreciate your efforts in keeping us informed of how the rikishi feel with each basho. Thank you thank you!

    Hakuho's rank in January 2007?

    I too continue to vote for Hakuho as ozeki. I believe that in essence, he is his own worst enemy. His complacency is something he should hold in check. At the end of the day, his intensity and dohyo smarts is what pushes him through always - barring any injuries. (A yokozuna...) :-(

    No More English Sumo on NHK

    I'm a TV Japan subscriber too, but I noticed that their English website for TV programs has already disappeared!!! (Showing respect...) Actually, he said after Haru basho. Do you really think NHK would listen to us? We're just silly gaijin. Very sad, Dale Oooh, sorry. I misread (or rather, just gut-reacted) to Murray's message. Anyway, TV Japan IS NHK, so maybe those of us who subscribe can write to TV Japan as well.

    Blog Translations

    I appreciate the blog translations a lot. I always say that for us, non-japanese readers, a peek into what else is going on with the rikishi is always interesting. Thanks to all the translators! (Eh?)

    Sumo on CBS

    Thanks! Only wish the feature was much longer. For us here in North America, English-speaking featues like that are few and far between.

    Asa comes to Sadogatake

    I vote Katayama too. Chest is not as hairy as Kotoryu's. The mage just fell off to the back so it kinda looked short. Certainly possible, since they are also in the same Ichimon, and Katayama looks a lot like Kotoryuu, but still seems like Kotoryuu to me.. Not Kaihou, that's for sure. <{POST_SNAPBACK}>

    Thanks Sasanishiki!...

    Asashouryuu's tsukebito shines

    Hey, the anecdotes about how Asa thanks him are heartwarming! Good for Shinzan then. (Applauding...) As Asa's sparring partner, he does get good keiko whether he likes it or not. Just a question: If he rises up the banzuke, that means Asa will have to find a new tsukebito right? Until when does a sumotori remain a tsukebito?
