  1. Why not translate the names ccompletely in English? Then you'd get The Blue Mountain fighting The Flying Monkey, etc.

    Sumo Limericks (in case Haikus are not your thing)

    When Asanoyama went out There wasn't that much of a shout; But after he lied And the falsehood was spied, He finds his career's up the spout.

    Sumo Clubs Disappearing In Japan

    This only shows how important tournaments for youngsters are. They bring awards and honours to the boys and their clubs, which is highly motivating.

    Who Is This Woman?

    Lol, 'comfortably' and 'seiza' don't go together in my book.

    Kitanofuji stuff

    Aha. Thank you, I hadn't thought of that. I thought it was a purely traditionalist choice.

    Why would wearing a kimono make you more susceptible to the virus?

    Natsu basho 2021

    I've noticed before that the scores in Juryo tend to bunch up, without anyone standing out. Has it ever happened in Juryo that *everyone* got the same number of wins vs. losses, like 4-4 or 6-6?

    Not that really matters

    Is that P.D.Q. Bach?

    Have a go at a Haiku!

    It's either 'shrunken' or 'shrinking', take your pick.

    Hakuho Made His Withdrawal Official Today

    Even retired rikishi sometimes appear on the banzuke. Witness Kotoyuuki.

    Videos Natsu 2021 - Days 1-15 + JURYO Day 3

    Is anyone making a digest of Juryo? And the talents in Makushita? Please? Pretty pretty please?

    This is why we should have a doctor and medical personnel familiar with traumas present. Only they can assess properly whether a rikishi requires immediate aid or can be left to stand up by himself without incurring further damage.

    Music abroad

    You know, I think I agree.

    By stopping all activities other than those to ensure the safety of the injured rikishi, attention will be concentrated where it is needed, instead of elsewhere ignoring/belittling the emergency.

    Toothless Sumo commentator dead at 65

    I laughed so much when it was posted here with him talking about fixing the yusho. "G o ei do!" ... man, I'm still laughing.

    Terunofuji’s Knees/Dohyo-Iri

    Ah, Harumafuji's dohyo-iri... now that was something. Using that foot shuffle during the buildup before a match, too. Maybe just only to remind Hakuho of his foot sole injuries... rubbing it in so to speak.

    Terunofuji's ozeki promotion formalized.

    11:39 ... Terutsuyoshi? Did he really say Terutsuyoshi? He sort of mumbled it, I couldn't make it out.
