I don't think it was a boring basho by far. Bashos have become a lot more interesting now that we have a large crop of promising youngsters slowly getting into place to challenge the old guard.
It is sad to see Kisenosato fight so long and hard at the top of his form to earn his final promotion, only to have his glory at the pinnacle cut short by serious injury. Will he ever reclaim the Y1e spot, I wonder. Not with Hakuho blocking the way.
Hakuho is the Dai of Dai-Yokozuna who totally earned his place at the top, and if he misbehaves -- who can forget that crazy ending of his fight against Yoshikaze? -- let it fire up a myriad challengers to throw him down. I'd like to see those fights. I"m sure that everyone else does too. No way would the Kyokai ask him to retire or skip a basho.
When was the last time that a pair of M1 rikishi both stood at double digits on Day 14? Takakeisho may be the next Ozeki.
Even with all the yushos already decided, the last day is going to be exciting. Five sekitori in Makuuchi and six in Juryo are fighting for their kachi-koshis, Enho still has a match to fight, and there are dozens of dramas still unfolding.
