    This is the second major band gig Kotoshogiku has landed in the past couple years. Don't know how he manages guitar practice and keiko. Those are not head-banger bands.

    A gripping Tamawashi story

    I can't quite put a finger on why this guy is so good, but I have to hand it to him.

    Just hold on a second. I want to squeeze in one more comment.

    Interesting to hear that Kotoshogiku is following your lead and joining a band. Shades of Konishiki.

    And how you have adapted to the technological changes since your teen years is impressive. Indoor plumbing was the tough one for me. Now we do that IN the house? Seriously?

    Basho Talk - Kyushu Basho 2016 ** (SPOILERS)

    Is this the first time the Henkamafuji maneuver has failed? Hak seemed to anticipate well, and when Harumafuji lunged from the side, swiveled perfectly to turn the tables. Since Ishiura can also do that maneuver, also stepping to the left, when he faces Harumafuji there is potential for an amusing little do-si-do as they both go sliding by.

    Basho Talk - Kyushu Basho 2016 ** (SPOILERS)

    It was a fluke move where Kotoyuki caught him with the heel of the hand right on the button. Fingers taped or loose would have made no difference. Boxing gloves are used to protect the hands (else they would be breaking fingers constantly), not cushion the blows. A knockout is due to the sudden jarring of the brain; how it feels on the face doesn't change that.

    Basho Talk - Kyushu Basho 2016 ** (SPOILERS)

    In the past, Hakuho always took advantage of someone trying to change grips and immediately drove him out. Today no reaction when Terunofuji did it. Hakuho definitely losing a step this basho, perhaps not fully healed.

    Regurgitated grilled food, perhaps.

    Kintamayama, you are a person who always gives a hoot. As always, many thanks.

    Thank you for your efforts above and beyond this basho. Sorry to hear that you received complaints; hope those folks can find something better to do with their time. Enjoy the rest of your vacation, and safe journey home.

    To be honest, it's a bit of a disappointment considering the sterling work you've done all these time, Moti. The typos, the rushed-feeling of the editing,..........aaaah who am I kidding I loooove you man and if you're a hot cute little asian girl of chinese descent I'll take you out to a nice candlelight dinner and give you sweet mushu all night long afterwards :PNote: I'm a little but not-so-cute asian guy of chinese descent so I hope nobody thinks I'm racist of something If Kintamyama is actually a hot cute little Chinese girl, she is doing a masterful job of disguising herself in her promo videos... Not that I love her any less because of that.
