    2019 Aki Basho Discussion (spoiler alert!)

    Back on Sept 14th, I went out on a limb and predicted that Meisei would win the Yusho. I still predict he will, although if Takakeisho's knees hold out, Meisei may not be able to defeat him. Very little is being mentioned about Meisei possibly winning. He may not be exciting to watch but he's solid and consistent. He must be doing something right to be currently tied for first place, although I don't think he's fought the higher-ranked Rikishi yet. I hope he gets to fight the "Big Boys" so we can see what's he's really made of! That would be so cool to see someone at M10 win the Yusho, but it may just be wishful thinking on my part.

    Here is Ama at the 2002 Aki Basho. He was in Makushita at the time.

    Here's a video of Hakuho at the 2002 Aki Basho. He was in Sandamne at that time!

    It's too soon to tell, of course, but I predict that Meisei will win the Yusho. It looks like Kakuryu will go kyujo probably today, Hakuho is out for the count, Okinoumi's nerves are starting to show, Takakeisho is having some bad luck and Ishiura is too small. Meisei's biggest obstacle is Mitakeumi who's looking very good. We'll see......

    I noticed it while watching the live broadcast but I still don't know if Takakeisho fell because of his knee injury or if tripping over the sandal was the cause. Personally, I think it was the sandal, but now I'm concerned that as a result of being tripped, it re-aggravated his knee injury.

    Not sure if anyone has already posted the Asanoyama/Goeido bout where the hapless Gyoji Tamajiro took a dive. It's initially off-camera but you can hear the thud at 2:30. Poor guy!

    Win a Harumafuji tegata

    Rocks, Do you have a friend (who is NOT a sumo fan) but has a social media account, who could enter your guess for you? It would have to be someone who couldn't care less about a Tegata.

    I finally figured that out! He DID win his bout against Yutakayama and is 5-1 but in Juryo, not Makuuchi.

    Oh-oh!! Did I make a mistake? I thought Takanosho won his bout.

    Win a Harumafuji tegata

    WHERE on Facebook do I put my guess? I looked under Inside Sports: Japan and I see the "Win a Harumafuji Tegata" announcement but I don't see a place where I can enter my guess.

    2019 Aki Basho Discussion (spoiler alert!)

    Oh, this is getting to be really exciting! Okinoumi 6-0 with SEVEN nipping at his heels with 5-1 -------- Ishiura, Enho, Meisei, Miyogyru, Mitakeumi, Endo and Takakeisho!

    21 Aki 19, The Results

    Hi again, Profomisakari, I hate to keep bringing up problems (or maybe it's not a problem), but I think I guessed 3 correctly, not 2. I guessed #7.B, #14.A and #18.B correctly. I guessed wrong on #20. Enho is on the Game Chart TWICE, #14 and #15. Was that a mistake? Can you tell me what TB1 and TB2 mean? And how do you determine what a player's TB number is? What does the sentence "By TB2 Wamahada leads before Chisayama because he has given his tip rather" mean?

    21 Aki 19, The Results

    Can someone clarify the number of bouts that qualified for this game on Day 1? Did Enho vs Onosho count? (Enho is on the game chart twice). I thought that there were 4 bouts, not 3. I thought #7 (Shodai vs Tamawashi), #14 (Enho vs Onosho), #18 (Toyonoshima vs Tsurugisho) and # 20 (Tochiozan vs Yutakayama) were all on the Day 1 Torikumi. Please correct me if I am wrong.

    21 Aki 19, The Results

    Oh, I'm excited! The Torikumi for Day 1 has match-ups for # 7 (Shodai vs Tamawashi), #14 (Enho vs Onosho), #18 ( Toyonoshima vs Tsurugisho) and #20 (Tochiozan vs Yutakayama)!!
