  1. Yokozuna no-nos-short history summary

    How do we know something like this was not happening every month back in the 'good old days'? If bringing guns into Japan was pretty much swept under the rug then what about something that would have been considered a minor problem? Minor problems would have never been made public.
  2. Urban animals

    Halloween night, the wife and I were on the front porch waiting for trick or treaters. It was dark outside but I noticed what I thought was a cat walking down the sidewalk across the street. Upon looking a little closer it was a raccoon. Walking down the street like he or she owned it. The most raccoons I have personally witnessed are five. My neighbors across the drainage area said they saw 11 one night in their back yard. No wonder with all of the cat food they put out for the stray cats. It is a raccoon buffet. I have also seen opossums (alive and dead), way too many squirrels (alive and dead) and my neighbors saw a coyote (I've only heard the howling). Of course we have the normal assortment of birds but I have also heard and seen hawks, vultures and an owl or two.
  3. 42nd Grand Sumo Tournament

    Not on the Banzuke committee.
  4. According to the first post, the 8th edition will be in a couple of days. The Hakuho cup is held once a year.
  5. Sumo program announcements (pics and vids)

    Coming from 'Mr. Divine Ritual' himself.... He needs to worry about his own 'house'.
  6. Rikishi and oyakata CM activities

    I wonder if RoboCop is still single? Or has he secretly registered his marriage and has a child on the way like quite a few others seem to do in the sumo world. I'm sorry for the gossip speculation but most things are so hush, hush in the world of sumo. Kind of like most recently - Osunaarashi.
  7. First new Yokozuna during 2018-2019

    I want to see how far Enho can go. I'm thinking he will be somewhat successful (meaning 8-7 over 15 days, not 15-0!) the first time he faces someone but his opponents will develop a strategy to defeat him when they face him again. I hope he can prove me wrong. I would like to see a small guy that can defeat the big guys.
  8. Elections January 2018

    Only 2 votes? Couldn't have happened to a nicer fellow. Besides his own vote, I wonder who else cast a vote for the Dai-Yokozuna?
  9. Guess a rikishi - win a tegata

    I thought it was Mitakeumi...
  10. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Meaning Japanese from birth not naturalized.
  11. Trivia bits

    I remember when Hokkaido seemed to be the go to place for recruits. How things have changed. Is their no longer any talented recruits in Hokkaido?
  12. Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Hatsu 2018

    He is going to stay at the same Juryo rank because of his 'injury'.
  13. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Kotokaze did it as a Sekiwake and then went on to be an Ozeki.
  14. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Tochinoshin vs Shohozan match and interview(s) courtesy of youtube user MISELET. And congratulations to Tochinoshin. I hope he will continue to stay healthy.
  15. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    You do and his name is Terunofuji. Unfortunately, like Baruto, his injured knee has made him a shadow of his former self. The only thing worse than Aminishiki and Terunofuji returning was having them in back to back matches today. It was really sad to watch.
