    Random Bouts

    Just going through some playlists this past week and watching a clip that stood out of Akinoshu vs Tomonohana. The latter loses his chonmage letting it all loose and wild. Looked like a relentless Raijin the thunder god! Haru 2000:

    Hakuhou injured.

    Asachan filming morning keiko when one of the toe injuries occurred on the morning of shonichi From last year, Hakuho's orthopedic surgeon explains what happened to the right big toe (With English captions CC)

    Hakuhou injured.

    Keep in mind this is a man that kept a severed tendon and ligament (right toe) for years without knowing and thinking that it was just his body becoming stiff with time. It would cause frequent dislocations because of the severed tendon yet he would just continue sumo by taping the area. He was without any kind of visible physical difficulty that even he was aware of. That was the only time I recall Hakuho withdrawing from a basho that started in 2015.

    Kyujo Updates - 2018 Hatsu

    So now the reports say internal visceral disorder, the NHK broadcast stated diabetes. Really don't want to hear it get much worse than that if even that is possible

    Preparations of the masses- Hatsu 2018

    Toyohibiki with arrhythmia!? That sounds worrying :( been sick for a week, but recovering and may join later.
  17. Just thought this was interesting. This picture banzuke for the upcoming basho with Inousuke pictured in the middle - now available online at shop.kokugikan Even with pending demotion/suspension I am guessing his name is on the itabanzuke as well?

    New recruits for Hatsu 2018

    A little of that exam with Naya getting "comfortable" at the heya on NStar Tokyo Broadcasting Sys. has been brutal lately with video take downs so this one is unlisted.

    Preparations of the masses- Hatsu 2018

    Any video of sumo news seems to be overshadowed by the Inosuke-sekuhara-scandal, unfortunately. Link to the NHK site of this morning's keiko.

    Mitakeumi in 2018

    Lowest between M1-M2Hak (with 1 fusen), Kise, Goeido, TakayasuLosing to M5 at the lowest, maybe Sokokurai if he's able to climb back up (which I doubt he can go higher than M8, but thinking he is capable of winning against a sanyaku Mitakeumi)
