    Hatsu Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Making fun of the elderly? How mature of you.

    Yotsu or oshi sumo?

    Definitely yotsu. I can understand mixing in oshi sumo when needed, but I'm not a fan of the rikishi who just stick to violently flailing their arms and hoping for the best.

    Rikishi birthday pics

    Although no one usually refers to a birthday as an anniversary in western culture, I suppose anniversary is acceptable since by definition a birthday is the anniversary of one's birth. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Birthday?wprov=sfla1

    Aki Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    He looks like 650 pounds of chewed bubblegum. Sad.

    Takanohana transported to hospital

    He's already been discharged from the hospital without elaborating. Could have been heat stroke.

    Basho Talk Natsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Kakuryu has no shame. I would expect nothing less than a henka from the mediocre Yokozuna desperate to add to his paltry yusho wins. He has done it TWICE in the same match vs. Kisenosato, Aki Basho 2015, day 14:

    Basho Talk Haru 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Doesn't look like he did. Kind of close though. I was expecting a torinaoshi.
  10. I believe it will start at 4:00 AM on the US East Coast, as Daylight Saving Time begins Sunday, March 11 at 2:00 AM.

    Osunaarashi scandal

    I'm curious about his original fabricated story and what exactly was he protecting his pregnant wife from? Possible stress or something else?

    Why can’t rikishi drive?

    Their geta get stuck between the pedals.

    Basho Talk Kyushu 2017 (SPOILERS)

    If I recall he didn't do it on day 14 either.
