    Hatsu 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Agree with the others. That was an awesome interview. I wish I had the time to translate it, but have to rush to work.

    Hatsu 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Interesting exchange earlier between Wakanohana and Shigeki Kiyono (the blow-by-blow commentator on Abema TV). While talking about Kotoshogiku's 700th win, Wakanohana said that the other day, his daughter told him about his record and that he didn't know about his own win-loss record until then. In fact (he added), he didn't even keep track of his overall win/loss record while he was active because he didn't care about it. At that point, Shigeki Kiyono said: "If it had been Hakuho, he would really have cared about it, right?". Is it because Hakuho talks a lot about records? I have heard him talk about records, yes, but that was usually in response to questions put to him by reporters about his future goals etc.

    Wow, Enho! That should be an ashitori plus (ashitori+tsuridashi).

    You, sir, are an encyclopedia. Thank you very much. I finally managed to attach a pic of Goeido's kesho mawashi. Anything on this one?

    Huh? I can't upload a pic even though it is only 6 kbs? I better read the pic posting thread, but some other day. Goeido's kesho mawashi pic will have to wait, haha.

    Hi Akinomaki I noticed these kesho mawashi (Kabuki mask = Endo / The other one = Goeido... in next post) in today's makuuchi dohyo iri. I believe I haven't seen them in this thread before. Are there any pics of these anywhere and any idea when they got these kesho mawashi? I hope the NSK add a feature on their website where they have pics of all the kesho mawashi of all rikishi.

    Ishiura keiko violence - the next scandal

    Sorry about the off-topic question: I have long wondered about this and thought about asking this question, so I'll use this chance to ask it. Has this (rikishi starting a fistfight after a match ends) happened during an actual honbasho, on the dohyo in plain view? I guess the closest thing I have ever seen was Hakuho's angry reaction and stare off against Asashoryu, but I'm thinking about a proper slug/slapfest. Oh wait, I just remembered Chiyotaikai's off-the-dohyo confrontation with Roho... but I'm still looking for a post match streetfight on/near the dohyo. And while we are at it, I have also wondered about a rikishi's mawashi coming off completely during a honbasho match, leading to his losing the match. The closest thing that I have seen on this topic was about a lower division rikishi's mawashi coming off (I believe it was in the early 2000s, but I can't remember).
  9. Saw Abe Shinzo giving the emperor the 'banzai' in today's ceremony.

    Sakatottari from Terutsuyoshi! Always great to see rare kimarite.

    Izutsu-oyakata has died

    Just found out today. Sad news indeed. I have remarked in the past on Kakuryu's incredibly deep grip on the aite's mawashi at times where he grabs it past the knot at the back. Watching Sakahoko's match against Chiyonofuji, I saw him employ the same grip. Like oyakata, like deshi.

    Win a Harumafuji tegata

  13. I hope they make a new sumo game soon. It's just my luck. All three sports that I want to play games of.... nobody is making games for them: sumo, cricket, boxing. I am tired of waiting, but as they say... hope springs eternal.

    I don't mean to use any profane language on this family friendly forum, but in my language, Kindai means "Get yourself f***** in the a**". Good thing nobody speaks Baluchi in Japan. I believe there is also a gyoji name with Kindai in it. If the ending is pronounced with a nasal sound (Kin da innn), it would mean "This person gets f***** in the a**". My humble apologies if this post violates any forum rules. I can assure you this post was made with a purely linguistic focus.

    Hatsu Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    What a funny moment in the commentary booth. Terao thought they were not on TV and he took his time answering a question, leading to funny glances from the blow by blow guy and Maruyama Karina (guest commentator). He finally realized they were on TV and he goes: "Are we on TV already?" = Laughter in the studio.
