  1. Basho Talk Haru 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Woo! We had some heated matches today, great stuff. Well, the final match wasn't anything to write home about, but never mind. Where the hell is that Shodai the rest of the time? He has so much potential, but half the time he's on the dohyo it's like he's having cerebral flatulence. ^.^;
  2. Basho Talk Haru 2018 (SPOILERS)

    I don't think I've ever seen Takayasu bounce off someone at the tachi-ai like that. Wow. Congrats to Tochinoshin, that was a hell of a performance. Mitakeumi v. Shodai was a tense match. Entertaining stuff.
  3. Basho Talk Haru 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Haha. So he does, must be his aerodynamics.
  4. Basho Talk Haru 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Injured or not, Kakuryu layed down the law today against Ichinojo. That was impressive. He's had some shaky wins this basho, but on the whole he's been exceeding my expectations. Mitakeumi is disappointing. He may well be ozeki someday, but he's not ready, whatever his problem is. A shame. I like Ikioi well enough, but he has never been one of my favorites. That may well change now, as he's been commanding my respect day after day here. I'll need to see the Takayasu v Tochinoshin match in higher quality, from a different camera angle...though I guess it doesn't matter now since the call is written in stone. Just curious, really.
  5. Basho Talk Haru 2018 (SPOILERS)

    lol...what? Just...what!? Crazy stuff today. God, I love sumo...
  6. Basho Talk Haru 2018 (SPOILERS)

    I wanted Mitakeumi to take that match, but something in my gut told me it would go to Endo. Still, I would really like to see Mitakeumi put up at least ten wins. Guess we'll just have to see... Is something wrong with Chiyoshouma? I mean, he's generally posted mediocre numbers, but at least his technical skill was on display. Where is it now? Relieved Takayasu got a win, but he's going to have to tighten up. He can't go on like this.
  7. Basho Talk Haru 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Hehe. Yeah, just felt like talking about the big guys this morning.
  8. Basho Talk Haru 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Glad Aoiyama seems relatively healthy. As long as that holds, he'll probably play havoc down there at m-17. Kaisei and Ichinojo are looking solid, too. Ichinojo in particular is looking like he's going to be a handful for opponents this time around.
  9. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    I apologize. I saw what I perceived as pernicious misinformation and felt obliged to offer a counterpoint. In the future I will simply report such posts.
  10. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    What a crazy basho that was. Well, it was lots of fun! This sort of dominance is a good look on Tochinoshin, I have no doubt he picked up a lot of new fans for that performance, and rekindled the fondness of his old ones. Disappointed with Mitakeumi. I feel sure he'll patch up his game, but this was a little underwhelming for a basho with only one yokozuna. Not a lot to add, I guess just "congratulations to the winners, condolences to the losers." Heh. But it was one hell of a ride.
  11. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    All the congratulations to Tochinoshin, one of the hardest fighters in the sport today. He's a man who has fought his way back, setback after setback, up the ladder in this unforgiving sport. Here's hoping he stays healthy and strong so he can continue to bring his brand of power sumo to the dohyo.
  12. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Wow, what a day of sumo this was. Never expected Endo v. Kotoshogiku to be such an awesome bout, but it totally had me on the edge of the seat. That Tochinoshin v. Ichinojo match was also surprising, though I expect Ichinojo was the most surprised of all. That was bonkers. And then five back-to-back losses Mitakeumi blows away a yokozuna. o.o!
  13. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Woooooow, ok. Wow. Tamawashi was in there using his head, but it wasn't enough. Still a good match, though. Congrats to Tochinoshin, who may well have leveled up. Well, I said I wanted more of that Ichinojo and he delivered. The mind reels at the possibilities, but let's wait and see. If he's finally over his injuries and has his mind right, though... Takakeisho still not quite there yet, but he's learning. Mitakeumi...I don't know what that was. Five losses in a row now, right? Get it together, man!
  14. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Well, well. Tamawashi hasn't seemed entirely on his game this time, so I was blown away by his win. Probably less so than Kakuryu, though, teeheehee.
  15. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    I would rather someone who at least seemed to be healthy. But, it was a rhetorical question. I'm sure they had their reasons, it just didn't make for an entertaining match.
