  1. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Or should I say de-butting. ... I'll show myself out.
  2. Games Talk Hatsu 2018

    Tell Jezz and Kitakachiyama about it. Both lost in Bench Sumo to 4-point lineups. I was the one to beat Kitakachiyama... Sorry mate. This might qualify as cruel and unusual punishment.

  4. How seriously taken is the 1 day tournament?

    I assume you're talking about this one; that's a video of the 2016 edition. It's a straight single elimination affair, and the rikishi take it markedly less seriously than the honbasho.
  5. What other sports do you watch?

    Cricket and kabbadi... Sri Lankan?
  6. What other sports do you watch?

    I have to say we have very similar taste. As a little boy I was dazzled by Kirk Stevens and his white suit, and Jimmy (Jimmay! ) White and his talent, much like Whirlwind Alex Higgins. Though he was before my time, I modelled key parts of my game after John Spencer. My perfect player has Davis' mind, Spencer's tactics, Hendry's nerves, Higgins'/Ronnie's talent, John Higgins' fundamentals and Doherty's guile.
  7. Random Bouts

    I remember digging the trivia bit out.
  8. What other sports do you watch?

    Just in case you're still searching for it... The spin on the final yellow is a thing of beauty. Who's your favourite? Mine was always Hendry but now he's retired.
  9. What other sports do you watch?

    Admittedly I'm a bit of a sport junkie, I'm sure many of you are as well. So let's see what sports we have in common besides sumo... The sports I watch, from the ones I started watching least to most recently, are: -Basketball. Fell in love with it pretty much from birth. I melted every 90s highlight reel my family could provide me with. Currently intently following Milwaukee and our hometown hero. No team has been more of a joy to watch live than Panathinaikos in their glory days. -Snooker. Eurosport used to scratch the itch, then it got discontinued from Greek free to air TV. Now I'm a semi-serious pool player, and if Athens had a snooker scene I'd be a snooker player as well. -Water polo. I like watching it but I don't follow any team. I used to play and now that I no longer do, I am out of shape. I trained and swam in the 2004 Olympics pools, so I've had the privilege of meeting most of the Greek national team. Rumour has it that if you say my team name and cap number to the then Panathinaikos coach, he still has flashbacks to my 7-goal game against them as a left flat, my sole claim to fame in the sport. -Rugby union. Can't remember how I started. But the 6 Nations is bar none the most heart-wrenching tournament I have ever seen. -Cricket. I was in Sri Lanka for a brief time in 2012/13. I got hooked. I have almost followed every ball of certain Test matches. -Baseball. The obvious next sport to get into. Like mini-Tests more than T20s; I was intrigued. Will the Mariners ever make the playoffs again? Not counting football. I only watch the Euro/World Cup voluntarily. And only some matches.
  10. Aargh! I almost fusenpai'd! I'll take Yoshikaze too but I expected Ounoshou to be far more popular than him as a pick. I thought I would have been avant-garde.
  11. New recruits for Hatsu 2018

    So nobody's making a bad joke involving Aa! Harimanada? Is that how it's gonna be? Well I'm going to show some restraint, but it's itchy.
  12. Videos and promo-Hatsu 2018-Days 1-9

    If you keep mentioning the ISP match in your videos I think it will quickly become the most popular game. If 3% of your YouTube subscribers start playing that's about 370 people Edit: wait no, I stand corrected. 555 people. When did you get so popular? I was right when I called you a celebrity...
  13. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    This is the aspect of yokozunahood that Kakuryuu is currently handling a lot better than Kisenosato, and what will probably ensure that he survives Kisenosato. Fabulous post, Pierre.
  14. Metasumo 2018

    I am officially popular? That ain't what you said but that's what I read. I'll call my mum and tell her.
