    Funny videos and photos of rikishi at play

    Thanks for the nightmares.

    Harumafuji danpatsushiki

    Perhaps Harumafuji causing Kisenosato's injury in Haru '17 might have something to do with the tension...

    Ah, thanks very much for that. The version I had in mind was the first one you linked - Gurowake's accurate interpretation aside. Side note, Kyokutenhou's career length never ceases to surprise me. I only knew Kushimaumi from the obliterating harite knockout he received from Kyokudouzan in 1993 - which I had assumed had taken place a few years earlier than that. I never thought Kyokutenhou would have faced him.

    Sorry, perhaps I wasn't clear enough. I'm looking for the rikishi who faced the largest number of different aite in makuuchi - not the aite pairs with the most bouts.

    Would anyone like to lend me their wisdom and tell me what's the right query to search for the rikishi with the most makuuchi aite faced? @Asashosakari, @Jakusotsu, @Gurowake, perhaps?

    Do you like sumo? And if not, why are you watching and posting about it?

    Does anyone have the Ikeru vs. Ooazuma tsutaezori from today in makushita?

    Pandaazuma Happy Birthday

    Happy birthday, and may the year ahead be better than the one behind you! Not too much better in sumo gaming though, give the rest of us a chance.
  9. Probably because the first man to undergo reconstructive surgery of that ligament was Tommy John, a baseball pitcher, and the surgery is now commonplace and effective largely thanks to his and other pitchers' success. I even heard references to "Tommy John surgery" even in my water polo days, in a team where nobody knew anything about baseball.

    In Hatsu 1971, Tochiazuma "Tochiazuma's dad" Tomoyori went 2-13 with a fusensho and a kinboshi. Has there ever been another instance of a rikishi who completed a basho without going kyujo and whose only wins he had a say in were against yokozuna?

    Let that be a lesson to us all. Toss salt like there's no tomorrow and you'll end up senile at 56. Meanwhile, Mitakeumi has an excellent start to his Ozeki run: 4 wins in 3 days.

    A needless one too. Clear as day. And they called a torinaoshi- what the hell? Nishikido is beatboxing nonsense up there.

    Aki Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    After Kisenosato's win, the way the crowd reacted, I wondered if anyone would throw any zabuton...

    Mitakeumi shikona change?

    I can imagine the conversation between Kotetsuyama and his shisho after the last makuuchi injury: "I'm going kyujo, I can't bear this injury." "Are you sure, Kotetsuyama?" "Itai, itai!" "All right then."
