    @mt fuji -- this is great. Practically all the lower rankers that are on my "watch list"... thank you!

    Favorite TV Series

    Political correctness is the death of subtle, intelligent comedy. When the masses start censoring the Idiot's Lantern, outrageous voices are silenced. In that increasingly toned down dumbed down environment, programs like My Music already disappeared together with the brilliance of Frank Muir and Dennis Norden. All gone now and hardly anyone remembers them now... oh well, I am just an old biddy that grew up with the Goon Show and Mornington Crescent. Auntie is doing her level best to cater for the YouTube generation. Has anyone here ever seen 'Fo a Fe'? That was a brilliant Welsh sitcom based on the differences between the North and the South.

    I can spend an evening bingewatching with you then... aaahh, Reginald Perrin. Not to forget You Rang, m'Lord? Chef! The Good Life To the Manor Born and dear old George and Mildred... doesn't Yes, Minister qualify?

    Preparations of the masses- Aki 2020

    Iwasaki caught my eye from his first appearance in Maezumo and I never stopped rooting for him. Back then, he was thin as a stick and had technique, speed and ring sense combined with cleverness. He rose and became the Flying Monkey and acquired the bulk he needed to fight to the top but never lost that exciting cleverness and it's great to see him in Makuuchi now. WELL DONE!

    Number of Sekitori per Heya

    Didn't the former Takanohana-beya have a high ratio of sekitori?

    Yes, that's what I thought.

    Training pics overview August 2020

    Thanks for the pics. That's some serious wrapping on Terunofuji's legs, looks complicated.

    Are Abi's days numbered?

    You can't know that nothing happened. It takes weeks before a contamination can be confirmed, the basho ended just days ago.

    Are Abi's days numbered?

    Yes, but those were hardly 'hanging offenses', were they? Intai sounds like there are irreconcilable differences that could never come to right. Whereas I thought Abi was just being immature and irresponsible and could do with some lessons.

    Are Abi's days numbered?

    What?? How many warnings has he had before this? Seems harsh and out of the blue -- they could have suspended him for 1 or 2 basho, surely? Compare this to Takayoshitoshi/Takanofuji who got so many chances before intai became inevitable.

    Kensho July 2020

    Perhaps the economic slump caused by Corona has something to do with that? Everywhere businesses are hurting when there is less money going around, although I'm not sure how Japan is coping. Having a tournament with an audience may have been an ill-conceived decision considering the wave of new Covid19 infections today.

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

    The torikumi makers have outdone themselves. Seldom have I seen a lineup like the upcoming last day of the July basho, with almost every bout a confrontation laden with suspense. Wow!
