    Terunofuji is the 73rd Yokozuna.

    Not Shoudai, he was the, "next Ozeki" but he is not the next Yokozuna.

    Asanoyama caught violating COVID restrictions

    I'm sorry but I just tried to picture Takaken$ho doing the dohyƍ-iri and wow that would be hilarious.

    March basho 2021

    Well he is the guy to beat now and that was a hell of a recovery after surgery etc.... but I'll never forget that look the Geek gave him after he henka'd him and secured his demotion. That was cold, for a match like that it was honorable to meet him head on.

    2021 "Kozumo" Hatsu Basho discussion thread

    Yeah in general I think the mice will play while the cats away, I expected some very spirited effort because many felt they had a chance.

    Who Is This Woman?

    Yeah I met him one time, he had two guys in suits with him, he gave me a bunch of stickers of himself! I got a box for my in laws and on the way out I was in the crowd with him trying to get out. I miss just seeing him in the crowd, it's not the same!

    September (Aki) Basho- offical thread (yay..)

    They are bigger than you think, I have stood outside the Kokugikan and watched them come in up close. The guys I thought were smaller are still pretty big. Ichi was huge and Tochinoshin is scary, I would not want to meet him in a dark alley.

    This IS the July 2020 Basho thread!! Spoilers!!

    Oh sorry I think I meant Yokozuna, I am a bit out if it haha. I still think his opposition was a bit thin. Hak doesn't have much opposition either these days, he is cracking here and there but if he is healthy it's a tall order. Too bad there isn't anyone really close to him, they have to hope he is not totally healthy or makes a mistake.

    Hmm I wonder how long the knees will last, some parts of the body will just never be the same, I know all about that! He is pretty lucky for this yusho, he didn't really go up against very much. Personally without a match with a healthy Ozeki in the tournament I don't really count it, doesn't feel right to me.

    Hatsu 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Toyonoshima has always been my guy and I have been really happy for him coming back from that injury as far as he has, I do not like Goeido so he can go go Goeido!

    Natsu basho 2019 discussions [SPOILERS]

    Yeah it could be, I generally can't move much and just get the the floor and stretch.

    Haru Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    My friend tore his bicep and it was six weeks before it was significantly better. It really varies so I guess we will see. He should take time with it.

    Hakuho Injures Arm Haru Basho 2019

    Uh no, Hak may play various mind games but he doesn't fake anything.

    Haru Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Yeah I read about that, maybe they found a way to keep him feeling good. That or he is in some sweet spot of back health. I hope whatever it is gets consistently better, he is a beast when he feels good. I mean when he moves and reacts things get a lot harder for his opponents.

    Haru Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    I get the feeling he is injured in some way, he is just way off.
