  1. Nikkan Sports popularity poll

    You’d expect him to be higher up? Foreign, and often lacking hinkaku. I’m not surprised at his placing. Kisenosato #1 is a joke.
  2. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen rikishi in casual clothing before though. 100% certain about Hakuhō– do yokozuna get special privileges?
  3. Injuries....

    That’s always been true in my opinion. I’ve said a few times before that Hakuhō was beating Harumafuji solely because he was uninjured while Harumafuji was a walking mummy. Kisenosato also had a mostly or almost entirely injury-free career I think and it got him to yokozuna in the end. Only rikishi I don’t understand is Gōeidō, he seems to never be injured (unless I’m wrong there?) and he’s even done a zenshō yūshō, but he’s so inconsistent with results. Granted, he’s still made it to ōzeki and held onto it this whole time, so can’t be doing too badly…

    I remember you from araibira’s days. Good work.

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen Hakuhō that taped up before. Maybe it just never caught my attention, but I still remember how he was the rikishi that could never be injured and always had 0 taping… sad to see. Too bad for Tochinoshin.
  6. Basho Talk Natsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    I’m not sure why everyone seems to be saying that Hakuhō won’t try to win on senshūraku. Have you people forgotten every time you’ve said that about pointless Harumafuji–Hakuhō bouts in the past and they always ended up being the highlight of the basho? These guys want to show they’re the top dog, it doesn’t matter if they’re out of the race, they still want to win. If Hakuhō didn’t lose to Ichinojō yesterday I would’ve given the win to Hakuhō for sure against Kakuryū but now I’m not sure. I’m still thinking he’ll win though.
  7. Basho Talk Natsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Why did Hakuhō lose. :( That was bad. Makes me question whether he’ll actually beat Kakuryū tomorrow. I’ll tentatively predict (and hope) that we get a playoff, but I think Kakuryū will win it then. Edit: For whoever was saying Tochi injured his right hand… I don’t think you punch the ground with an injured hand. But who knows.
  8. Basho Talk Natsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    My prediction: Kakuryū beats Tochinoshin, Hakuhō beats Kakuryū, tomoesen! Do you have a real answer? They’re clearly post-treatment for his right shoulder injury but what was the treatment? Looks like they could be covering injection spots, what kind of injections would those be? I’ve read people say steroids are used for treating injuries so maybe you’re not even wrong.
  9. Basho Talk Natsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Does anyone know what those bandaid things Tochinoshin has on his right shoulder are about?
  10. Basho Talk Natsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    I wish they’d test him so we’d know. Personally I have nothing against juicing, it improves the level of competition and gives us better bouts to watch, but my problem is when someone juices and beats someone who isn’t. That’s unfair.
  11. Basho Talk Natsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Wow, Tochinoshin. Amazing bout, I’m glad Hakuhō went for the belt. Would be wonderful if he can zenshō. I just hope he’s not juicing, as that would take away everything from the run. And to think he was supposedly injured coming into the basho… he just looks stronger than ever. I can see him make yokozuna in 2 more basho.
  12. Sumo program announcements (pics and vids)

    I don’t know if this was already posted or if it’s even the right topic so sorry in advance but… this vid is amazing, Hakuhō explaining various sumō techniques (how to break a grip, how to effectively get one, how he breathes at tachiai, etc.…)

    ^Fist bump? That was a “my wrist/elbow hurts” motion.
  14. Basho Talk Natsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    What the hell was Shōdai doing? Was he even trying? Tochinoshin is more of a yokozuna than the 2 current ones right now. Barring injury he gets promoted soon enough. I think he’s gonna yūshō, and possibly beat Hakuhō tomorrow. If he actually does then the yūshō is as good as his.

    Are we thinking of different people? It was 2 (and so long ago that it wouldn’t matter for today anyway): http://sumodb.sumogames.de/Rikishi.aspx?shikona=futabayama&heya=-1&shusshin=-1&b=-1&high=-1&hd=-1&entry=-1&intai=-1&sort=1
