    Interesting guess. But クロウ (Crow) seems to be to short for the remainder. Could the OP scan this part in a higer resolution?

    Basho Talk - Nagoya 2015 +++ Spoiler alert! +++

    That was the first time that I've ever seen a crowd chanting in unison for a particular wrestler. Well, Goeido comes from Osaka. It happend a couple of times the crowd during an Oska-basho was cheering for him like that [in hope the local hero might become Ozeki or Yokuzuna or beat at least the great guys]. I was rather suprised that this happened in Nagoya... The chearing for Goeido was really worth mentioning, though this time....

    Help Please Identifying Picture

    That's what I thought, even without having your expertise.^^ It doesn't seem to fit Kuramae Kokugikan. In the background there is a vertical advertisement banner. In the middle it says ウイスキー* aka 'Whiskey'. Right next to it some other related advertisement text is visibile, but not readable. Tried to figure out what it could be. 'Adjusting' contrast, etc... I couldn't work it out. Maybe someone can pin this down. *The older spelling was ウヰスキー. Wonder if that does necessarily imply postwar times? One way to fix a terminus post quem?

    What did they say today?

    Could anybody tell me, what the f**** Kaisei is doing in Brazil with Humpty Dumpty right now? Shouldn't he do Sumo in Nagoya? I still don't get it. And does anybody know, if they can recieve NHK sumo transmission in Alice's Wonderland? Has Humpty Dumpty ever got a kachikoshi?

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Nagoya 2015

    I'm very pretty sure that Kyokutenhou would retire on demotion. Well, I'd at least be very surprised if he'd stay on in Juryo. Positively...? Don't know.... Kotoshogiku's case is somehow different. After demotion he still has his chance of imediate return with a 10+ kachikoshi. I'm pretty sure he won't retire before that turns out helpless... I'd imagine Kokutenho to retire after the next Banzuke release and Kotoshogiku during honbasho... Just my wild guess without much expetise...

    Leaderboard Day 11 Nagoya Basho 2015

    As far as I see it, Kyokutenho is safe with 3 more wins, he could stay in Makuuchi with 2, but that is on the edge and with less then 2 he will be demoted. I'm very sure that he will go intai on demotion. So a very crucial basho for him. I cross fingers for him. Edit: Mmmhhh... Didn't notice. These comments would rather belong to the Promotion/Demothion-Thread right?

    Yes, of course you are.^^ ;) This is, besides of Kintamayamas dayly video digest, one of the most awaited and profound threads during honbasho time. Well, as of today, hardely anything we can make out of it, right? I think, we need 2 or even 3 more days to get a better picture on this topic....

    Sumo Reference Updates

    Nothing of importance, but I just noticed, that Osunaarashis change of writing his 'first' name 金太郎 -> 金崇郎 per Kyushu 2014 is still not reflected in the DB.

    Exactly. Hakuho was acting just the way he is allowed by rank and experience to act in a keiko session. "Babyface, come back later when you're grown up and need to shave!"

    New kesho mawashi

    No, that's just the middle part of his shikona from top to bottom on the left side. Yes it is. It is actually one and the same. Something, I must confess, I was't aware of. The middle part of his shikona is in fact this 夢 (yume). :)

    New kesho mawashi

    The decorative element seems to be the Kanji 夢 (yume), which means 'dream', 'vision'.
