    Happy Birthday, Akinomaki!

    I'd like to wish you a Happy Birthday, Akinomaki! You are such an integral part of Sumo Forum. I don't know what we would do without you!
  2. Excellent article! I will leave it to someone more experienced than me to contact the writer Saya Abney, e-mail address

    Story of Man Who Has Trained Yokozunas

    Very inspiring story. I wish it had named which Yokozuna he trained and provided details about the training. It's wonderful that he's going to be 80 this summer and is still going strong. Thank you for posting this story.

    Corona virus thread??

    I'm very sorry to hear about your wife. Have you and your son actually been tested? I didn't think that because one family member has it that the rest of the family automatically has it, too. I think you both should actually get tested. However, I certainly agree with the 10-day quarantine. If it's okay with you, I will pray for your whole family. P.S. I love your wife and son's names!!

    New Reality Tv Show: Celebrity Sumo!

    Hahahahaha!!!! It says that sumo wrestlers eat chankonabe 6 to 10 times a day! Well, at least they spelled chankonabe correctly! I can't imagine who the producers could con into signing up to do this show. It certainly won't be any real celebrities. They're too busy making sure they don't gain a pound.

    Good to know. But since this thread was asking about favorite songs, I chose to mention it - one time, one link.

    One of my favorite movies is "Spinal Tap". My favorite song in the movie is "Big Bottom". It's a little risque so I hope no one is offended.

    Am not aware of a "sister channel thread" and I only mentioned the HU Band one time with one link. I don't see the problem. This is a great thread, not too complicated for me....

    One last Enkh Erdene video, this time singing my favorite Elvis song "Can't Help Falling in Love with You".

    Once again, the young Mongolian singer Enkh Erdene, this time doing his best Elvis impression.

    Here's Enkh Erdene again singing "Amarillo by Morning". He doesn't speak a word of English (at least not when he performed this song). This song was made famous by George Strait, an American country star. Enkh sounds even more authentic than George Strait!!! lol

    Believe it or not, this is the same singer who sang Chandmani in the video above. He is extremely versatile. The song he sings in this video is a rock version of a traditional Mongolian folk song!! He can also sing the American country song "Amarillo by Morning" with an American Southern accent. Also Elvis' song "Don't Be Cruel". He's my new favorite singer!

    Here is a beautiful traditional Mongolian folk song called "Chandmani" sung by Enkh Erdene, a young man with an incredible voice. If you scroll down, you can read an English translation of the lyrics.
