  1. Aki jungyo 2017

    That Kanazawa dohyo preparations pic makes the dohyo looks very small? Fish-eye lens?
  2. Ura injured

    Here's coming from a couch potato and never had muscle surgery in his entire life : If he wants to challenge for sanyaku and possibly stay there for a good portion of his career, he'll have the surgery and therapy. If he wants to yo-yo between lower maegashira and juryo and be content, then he'll not have the surgery. Does that sound reasonable?
  3. So if say a gyoji has been doing his job for a few years and it's apparent he's just not good at it, will he be moved to another position say a yobidashi?
  4. Retirees after Aki 2017

    It's always very moving to see those danpatsu-shiki pictures. Being a distant observer, I always wonder what goes through the minds sub-juryo and below guys when they go through the ceremony. Is it along the lines of : "C**p I've wasted a dozen years of my life on this thing and I've gotten nowhere! What am I going to do now??" or is it more like : "I didn't make it big but I've gave it my best. What an honour to be involved in ozumo and I can't wait to start my next phase of life." That Fujinohana guy must have caused quite a stir when he debuted, no? With that physique, ancestry and dashing good looks. Anyone remembers?

  9. Basho Talk - Nagoya 2017 (SPOILERS)

    Aaand HF nearly did it! Anyway congrats Hakuho! And Aoiyama too! May this serve as a wake up call to him that he's not there to be just a pretty, big-boobed Caucasian presence.
  10. Basho Talk - Nagoya 2017 (SPOILERS)

    Hakuho will somehow inexplicably lose to Ama, then got slapped around by Aoiyama in the play-off. Angry and bitter, the loss will ignite something latent in Hakuho and he will then proceed to take 15 of the next 18 bashos, 13 of them by zensho, before signing off in style by doing the Tokyo 2020 yokozuna dohyo-iri as the best ever and the Kyokai forced to rename the Kokugikan to Hakuho GOAT National Stadium. He become rijicho the instant he retires, taking Ishiura as his wingman and proceed to make sumo one the most popular sports in the world, overtaking tennis and ten-pin bowling in popularity.
  11. Basho Talk - Nagoya 2017 (SPOILERS)

    An impeccably timed shimmy of the left hip from the pink mawashi, and down comes tumbling the black mawashi. Beautiful!

  13. Promo and Videos - Nagoya 2017-Days 1-15

    I'd say he gets the job done as quickly and efficiently as possible.
  14. Wakaichiro from Texas

    Hate to say this, but looks waaaay more comfortable on the dohyo than a certain recent, a lot more hyped-up ex-sumotori from North America...

    As is the norm with most people in this "face-value" world we're living in...
