    Basho Talk - Aki 2015 +++ Spoiler alert! +++

    Pleasantly surprised at the performance of Akiseyama in Juryo so far! Does anyone possibly have a link to one of his bouts? Can't seem to find any in the database. Much obliged!

    Basho Talk - Nagoya 2015 +++ Spoiler alert! +++

    I've always thought that the post-match pushes of Hakuho were made into something much bigger and that people tended to exaggerate. But I must say, that when he slapped Ichi after their bout, I was kind of shocked for the first time. Wich doesn't mean that I'm on the I-Hate-Hakuho bandwagon, but still, I found it inaproppriate.

    Natsu 2015 Basho Talk (spoiler alert!)

    My chaotic thoughts on day 12: Just when I thought I couldn't be more disappointed in Goeido he pulls it off against Hak. Followed by loud yelling in my living room (in a positive context). Very interesting basho so far. Amazed at the fact that, despite almost everyone agreeing Endou shouldn't be there, he's managing to secure his place in makuuchi after all. Bit sad seeing Toyo go makekoshi, I love him in everyone of his bouts. Somehow I find myself routing for Kaisei, although I never really liked him, just cause it would be amazing if he could secure the yusho. His bout was also followed by yelling, yet in a negative context.

    Natsu 2015 Basho Talk (spoiler alert!)

    Yelled out loudly at the Hakuho-Ichinojo match. Yelled out (a little less) loudly at Terunofuji-Sadanoumi. Very interesting start of the basho, especially cause i'm routing for sada and ichi.

    Basho Talk Haru 2015

    All yaocho comments aside: Haru-Hak was an amazing match. Haru was doing good blocking Hak's left hand from getting a grip on his belt. At a certain moment he stops blocking Hak's hand to go on the offensive. He can't finish it, Hak get's the left outside grip and it was all over. Beautiful match and an amazing basho all over. Concerning the yaocho comments: This might be a stupid question, but who is this 'Mike' person people seem to be referring to as some sort of expert in weeding out the yaocho matches from the real bouts?

    Basho Talk Haru 2015

    Although I like Hakuho, I couldn't help being totally excited when Terunofuji beat him. Yelling loudly: JAAAAA!!! (wich means 'yes' in Dutch ;)). It's really a curse being as good as Hakuho is, everybody just wants to see you lose. Tomorrow Hak goes up against Kise, who has beat him on a couple seperate occasions in the past. We might have a yusho after all. Edit: I saw day thirtheen today, this morning. That's why I talked about Hak facing Kise 'tomorrow', wich is actually today. :)

    Toyonoshima put a smile on my face in his bout against Harumafuji.

    Endou situation

    I was just thinking that some kind of system where you don't immediatly lose rank when you get seriously injured wouldn't be all that bad. Offcourse there used to be one and it got abolished, so there must have been reasons. But the current system certainly also has his flaws.

    Basho Talk Haru 2015

    Aminishiki-Tochinoshin was the best bout of day three in my book. Sometimes I can't believe how much of an amazing comeback Tochinoshin has made/is making, since he got badly injured in 2013. He seems better than before his injury.

    Really enjoyed Tamawashi-Oosunaarashi and Tochinoshin-Ichinojou on Day 11. Botch for completely different reasons. The many faces of sumo... :)

    Toyonoshima was excellent against Harumafuji today. Only rikishi so far who gave him a run for his money. Speaking of Harumafuji: he seems to be in perfect shape this basho. His speed and tactics make him so brutal sometimes. I think of all current rikishi in makuuchi, I'd be most afraid of a match-up against Harumafuji. Ichinojo looked great against Goeido today. I was glad we got to see his calm, calculating demeanor again: keeping his cool, biding his time, taking the win.

    Felt bad for Goeido for his bout of day 2. So much effort, but in the end it was all in vain.
