    Spirited rikishi Aki 2022

    You know the reason why. It was the "fierce resistance" put up by Shodai.

    The problem right now is who is going to step up and become the next Ozeki and Yokozuna? As much as I like Terunofuji, we knew that his time would be limited because of his knees. The current Ozeki, trying to be nice, are not good. I was pretty certain that Asanoyama would be the next Yokozuna but he will still be in Makushita next tournament. I do believe that he is the best current candidate to make it to Yokozuna, barring injury. I hope some of these young guys step up and soon. Their are some terrific matches and some young guys that have potential but the current state of sumo right now, in my opinion, is bad. Will I keep watching? Of course because I like sumo. I will be watching for these young guys to finally take over the top of the banzuke. I hope tomorrow that the Takayasu and Tamawashi match or matches are entertaining.

    Ridiculous pedictions day 10-15

    If he keeps losing you better buy some lottery tickets.

    Terunofuji needs to withdraw. He is headed into Onokuni territory or worse.

    Corona and sumo

    From the article: "For asymptomatic people with the virus, the self-quarantine period will be shortened from seven days to five, so long as they get a negative result from an antigen test at that point." Someone at work had mild sinus symptoms and was given a covid test. It came back positive. He kept getting tested and kept coming back positive. A week and a half later, he was finally allowed to return to work and he was still testing positive. Unless things change, I won't be going to Japan for a few more years.

    Banzuke for Aki 2022

    No kidding! A J8e gets promoted to Maegashira 16w with a 10-5 record while a J13w gets promoted to J9e with an 11-4 record. "Banzuke luck"....

    Kaisei Intai

    Well Kintamayama said quite often during his sumo highlights their was Kaisei A and Kaisei B.

    Banzuke for Aki 2022

    Honestly, it seems like several rikishi get, let me try and be politically correct, "bad banzuke luck" when every banzuke is released. Let me clear by saying it is not necessarily the same rikishi all of the time.

    Hakuhou is now Miyagino

    I made a slight change to your statement.

    Nagoya 2022 day After pics overview

    He seems to be following the late, great Kitanoumi when it comes to stoicism. I remember a photo in an old Sumo forum issue from Kitanoumi's engagement announcement. It has to be one of the few occasions where he was caught on camera smiling. His soon to be bride looked like she was at a funeral.

    Farcical basho?

    I think 'some infamy' no longer applies. To me, Nagoya 2022 is right up there with Haru 1932 but obviously for a different reason.

    Gaga Does Dallas!

    Gaga in my neck of the woods!?!?! Outstanding! I work seven days a week so I won't be able to attend.

    Nagoya 2022

    That rule has always been murky along with the shini-tai (dead body) rule. And as you know, sumo / Japan has a lot of 'unwritten' rules.
