    kawaigari. Right after his ozeki promotion, to make sure he doesn´t lose his motivation for the next step

    Hakuho retires

    It coincided with the end of Hakuho´s complete dominance.

    Hakuho retires

    Not that it matters at all, but in my country blue suits are the ultimate testament of really bad taste. They even beat furs for men. Brrrr...

    Hakuho retires

    In my opinion the Kyokai didn´t do themselves a favor with reminding Hakuho in writing of the rules basically everybody has to adhere to. That gives them much less leeway on how to deal with infractions of other members, or they will be publicly accused of double standards. That´s one thing they can´t afford.

    Hakuho retires

    A wild guess: could it be that the Kyokai´s recent experience with a dai Yokozuna-turned-oyakata prompted them to be, say, a bit more careful with rikishi that enjoyed demigod-like reverence joining their ranks ? (And I need a tagline: "Say it ain´t so, Hak !" )

    Same for Mitakeumi a day earlier it seems....They should at least withhold the kensho for "efforts" like that. A disgrace.

    I think Takakeisho has already peaked, and I just don´t see him becoming a remotely decent yotsu-wrestler. For starters, I can´t remember him getting an outside grip - ever.

    To me it looks like Takakeisho is dealing with an issue that affects his performance on a daily basis. Today he was on (and Wakatakakage doing not very inspiring sumo).

    A curious question: what is happening with the (lacking a better wording) "announcement sheets" after a basho ?

    I think Mitakeumi is primed for a Kotomitsuki-like career, i.e. languishing in lower sanyaku and the joi for a very long time, before pulling his act together and finally making ozeki.

    No problem here. Actually having people realize from time to time that their old fart of a boss has a human side is a good thing :-).

    This Thursday I accidentially forgot to mute before I opened the stream. Chance had it they just announced a rikishi, and a young staff member of mine checked into my office as she heard somebody screaming . The expression on her face when I explained to her what was going on was priceless, she will never view me the same again.

    Wait. Aminishiki still hasn´t had his danpatsu-shiki ? Or am I confusing him ?

    Hoshoryu is getting bigger at a striking pace.

    Aki Yusho Predictions?

    I am going to bet ten Likes against that
