    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!

    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.

    Another Sekitori Marriage

    Well they like to say they are focusing on their own brand of sumo style. But yeah the interview speak is pretty limited.

    Hatsu Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    If you watch in slow mo Mita does some martial arts blocks and stuff like karate, it was a very quick and decisive set of blocks and then pushing forward. Hak looked totally surprised by that.

    Hatsu Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Yeah I have wondered. I saw her in person and I went out of my way to meet Olympic jiji (gold hat guy). He gave me personalized stickers! I have wondered who she is, I always assumed she was supporting a heya or something.

    Hatsu Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    I think his back feels good, when it hurts he can't push or lift and they walk him backwards.

    Kyushu Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    I've had the box over the halls where the rikishi walk in and out. The 6 zabuton were loose at the kokugikan. Those are my favorite boxes since nobody is in front of you and they walk under you, good visibility.

    Kyushu Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    However the Abema coverage is annoying with Japanese rap music etc... NHK is good and I always watched it in Japan. Someone had it streaming last night on Youtube so I watched until I fell asleep, not long after Juryo so I watched Moti's as usual for the end.

    Kyushu Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Yeah it's strange how he wasn't doing well in some matches and yet he beat both the front runners. I was thinking he was hurt or something, but by the end he was doing well again.
