    Favorite Yokozuna? Past And Present

    This is a trick question, isn´t it ?

    Question About Forearms/Slaps

    I don´t know. However the last time I remember harite being used against a yokozuna (and I am sure I am missing here several instances) was by a promising young rikishi named Kisenosato, against Asashoryu. Needless to say - Asa was livid and gave him a thorough shove arrogantly "kneed" him into the chest after defeating him.

    Oonokuni Discussion

    Add a third MK (4-7) in 1927. But Miyagiyama may have been an exception, him being an Osaka sumo Yokozuna.

    Something completely different: Tokio 2021 - what are the odds of Hakuho carrying on ?

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    To lighten the gloomy mood of this ghost basho, the sight of a few daisies around the tawara would have been really nice.

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Dead body is called when a rikishi has absolutely no chance to turn the tables, usually when he is up in the air and on his way out of the ring, with no contact to his opponent. I cannot remember it being applied in a situation like that.

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Thanks a lot for this. I was really wondering if they were going out of their way.

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    In my gai-jin mind I was imagining, say, a Yankees star telling the media that an ongoing playoff series sucks, and the commissioner wondering what´s going on in the brain of the game´s best player ever. That wouldn´t go unanswered. It seems I am just discovering a cultural aspect I have missed thus far, many thanks. (BTW, I love love your epitaph )

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    My apologies if I am bothering you and others, but is it that the rikishi and the kyokai powers are a little less composed in their comments than usual ? I am really wondering.

    Did he REALLY say this, or is it me missing irony from you ?

    I am wondering if his collapses are a mental thing, or lack of fitness, or both. Mitakeumi doesn´t look exactly like a workout freak.

    Ex-Kotonowaka is still an imposing figure, :-o and looks like a proud dad.

    Chiyotairyu has a strong habit doing „backward sumo“. Looked like Ishiura took advantage of the momentum.
