    Wearing a kimono gives you a festive feeling, it is festive clothing. He doesn't feel like being festive because of the situation. 

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

    "i noticed you've been wearing suits this basho (he likes to wear kimonos every now and then), " said Yoshida announcer. "I guess I don't feel like wearing a kimono because of the virus," answered Kitanofuji.

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

  3. 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?

    The pessimistic in me thinks instead of calling the winner and then watching for 2 minutes if the guy can get up by himself, we will now have the winner, gyoji and juges just stand still for 2 minutes waiting to see if the guy can get up by himself (then maybe have 2 yobidashi attend the injured rikishi, then maybe a doctor) and then call the winner. 

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems the sumo culture is to give the opportunity to the downed rikishi to get up by himself to not look weak. That leads to exemples like Kizakiumi or Shonannoumi where help is needed, but everyone just watches from afar pretending everything is fine giving him time to recuperate. That would need to change too, IMHO.

    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.

    This hijacked my Playlist recently. It might be blasphemy to say this, but it's better than the original.

    You know, I think I agree.

  6. 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.
