    New ozeki Asanoyama

    It isn't just happening in Hawaii. We have a Japanese friend that works in Spain. She went to Milan, Italy on vacation with an Italian coworker just before the virus got out of control in Italy. She had locals there making rude comments to her because of the virus originating in China. I guess they assumed that she was Chinese. As soon as she got back, her company told her to self quarantine for two weeks.

    New ozeki Asanoyama

    I believe Asanoyama deserves the promotion. Recently, rikishi seem to be getting injured right after their promotion to Ozeki or Yokozuna. My hope for him is that he will continue to be healthy and that he has many more years as a sekitori ahead of him.

    I did say almost all....

    Sumo betting

    I am certain almost all would have lost money when Kakuryu lost to Tokushoryu. To me, that was the biggest upset of the entire tournament.

    Rikishi Status - 2020 Haru

    Oh my.... that is not good. Not a whole lot of treatments work for back problems. If he keeps putting on weight, then that may only exacerbate the pain.

    Quite a lovely retirement. I enjoyed it immensely.

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Haru 2020

    In the past, I believe their have been cases where the kyokai seems to have encouraged Yokozuna to hold off on retiring. It seems like that was mentioned in Sumo World magazine. Of course I am talking about really old issues of the magazine.

    Coronavirus in China

    Oh please just stop. This is all on China. Every legitimate source points to this virus starting in Wuhan. If anyone believes anything else then they should be congratulated for believing the Chinese propaganda machine. As for the rest of the post, I am tired of politics being inserted into the conversation. Not everything is about politics and I fail to see how a thread titled 'Coronavirus in China', gets turned into a discussion about U.S. politics.

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    I love it when a rikishi tries a henka and loses. Great job by Ikioi of 'turning the tables'.

    He was flexing his right leg after this match. I hope that he is okay.

    Coronavirus in China

    The airline company sent us an email today. We were advised that we can cancel our flight and get a full refund. At this time, the airline has no plans to cancel the flight. We are still planning on going. I have been checking the W.H.O updates every day and their seems to be a steady number of new cases being reported in Japan. Fifteen on the March second, nine on the first and twenty on the last day of February.

    Corona and sumo

    This is potentially going to be a very bizarre Haru basho. I say potentially because it still could be cancelled.

    Corona and sumo

    Can't the rikishi be quarantined in the Osaka Prefectural Gymnasium for the 15 days of the tournament? The Juryo and Makuuchi rikishi could conveniently have one match every day. That would work out nicely for us sumo fans.

    Banzuke for Haru 2020

    Honestly, that is a very good question and I don't know if their is an answer. When sumo had the kosho system, some of the rikishi were abusing it. How many rikishi were actually injured during that time? Now, it could be the exact opposite. Since their currently is no kosho system, most rikishi will show up for a tournament even though they are nursing injuries. Some of them will fight for the entire 15 days and maybe go 2-13. Others, go kyujo during the tournament only to return.

    Banzuke for Haru 2020

    He won it with only one good leg. Injuries really do keep some rikishi from reaching their potential.
