    Takanohana activities

    One of the TV channels in Japan has a topic segment and Taka and his son were discussed for several minutes. It lasted so long that my wife, who is not a sumo fan, got bored and went into the kitchen to get some food.

    Rikidozan was born Kim Sin-rak in Japanese occupied Korea. That may be why their is no birth prefecture. He is also considered the father of pro wrestling in Japan.

    Who Is This Woman?

    This is true but the same thing happen during the Taka-Waka era. I am afraid that most of them will get bored, flitter away and move on to something else. I hope that I am wrong.

    How many 25 year olds even watch sumo any more....

    Who Is This Woman?

    You are right! I did forget to credit @Akinomaki for getting the photos for every day of the tournaments. Akinomaki does a great job. As for the photos, I downloaded those four and saved them so I could upload them again. I really do believe that those photos are of the mystery lady. As I and others have suspected, she is older than she appears. She looks much younger with the mask. @Kaninoyama posted an interview and it is obvious that she does not want any attention. With a full house it would be harder to notice her but being by herself, close to the dohyo, she really stands out. I hope everyone will leave her alone, enjoy the mystery and let her enjoy the sumo.

    I decided to check out the 2018 Kyushu last day photos mentioned by Amamaniac earlier in this topic. Here are four photos that could have the mystery lady in them. She, of course, is on the left side of the photo in white. What do you all think?

    Rikishi Status - 2021 Hatsu Basho

    I am seeing reports on a social media site that Takakeisho has withdrawn from the tournament. Can anyone confirm this?

    I am really enjoying hearing about Cal's experiences in Japan. It sounds like he should write these things down and turn them into a novel. Tell Cal that Camp Zama is an Army installation. Yokota is Air Force.

    Reading old results in sumodb?

    I think this is what they mean?: y=yasumi (absences) d=draw (stopped) a=azukari (undecided) o=other draw

    Kotoshogiku retires

    You shouldn't be apologizing because you have done nothing wrong. I stopped feeding the troll. The zombie doesn't care about facts. He makes an argument and when you counter the argument with facts, then he tries to change the subject with a different argument. I don't see his posts now unless someone quotes what he says. The statement you made above about posting in a tribute thread about Ozeki standard arguments is spot on. A tribute thread is not the place for them. It is obvious that the zombie doesn't like Kotoshogiku so why say anything in the first place?

    Who Is This Woman?

    It probably is the same person. I know their was several threads of discussion on a sumo Facebook page about this particular lady and the moderators put a stop to it. At first the moderators allowed only one thread and then they shut that thread down. Stalking and creepiness were the reasons for the shutdown.

    You should know by now that the zombie ignores facts.

    Kotoshogiku retires

    Once again, you make a statement and I counter that statement with a fact. Now you have done it again. Now I am done.

    Kotoshogiku retires

    He was an Ozeki for five and a half years. Some people would think that was pretty impressive by itself but my comment was in regards to your comment about Kotoshogiku not being in the mix to win. You seem to have missed that point so I will say it again. In the last tournament of his Ozeki run he was 12-3. He lost on the last day to Baruto or he would have been in a playoff with Hakuho. That is what I call being in the mix to win.

    Gagamaru retired

    I hope that Gaga will be successful now that his time on the dohyo is over and I am sad to see his ozeki run finally come to an end. You will be missed big guy.
