    As I have said before, Teruno is in a class by himself. Sure, he had a shaky start. But he is still the one to beat.

    Come on, Mita. Do it for those Kensho.

    A kick in question?

    LOL. Big Kensho or not, Mitakeumi just does not have it in this basho. The only Sanyuku he beat in this basho was the hapless Shodai. But, I am hoping he beats Teruno. A 4 way playoff is fun.

    Yeah, I think it will be an easy win for Takakeisho. I am not even sure Shodai will do his best given that this match has no meaning to him. OTOH, it do-or-die (go Kadoban) for Takakeisho.

    I "hoped" Mitakeumi beat Takakeisho. Oh, well. Again, 3 out of 4 ain't bad. I see a playoff between Terunofuji and Takanosho with the former prevailing.

    It is so good to see Tomokaze getting close to Juryo status. Before his major injury, I thought he'd eventually make an Ozeki.

    In a still shot, he looked like a superman flying through the air. I think he got credit for that.

    Hmm. Sadanoumi surprised me there. But 3 out of 4 wasn't bad. Today's prediction: Terunofuji rolls over Shodai. Takanosho beats Kiribayama. This will be a tight match. Personally, I like Takanosho better than I like Kiri, hence the pick. Sadanoumi loses to Daieisho. Just to spite me and my predictions, Sadanoumi may beat Daiesho here. Mitakeumi beats Takakeisho, then loses the final match to go Kadoban, making it unanimous.

    My prediction for today's key matches: Terunofuji beats Takakeisho Takanosho loses to WTK Ura loses to Abi Sadanoumi loses to Hoshoryu.

    Many (me included) have noted that Shodai's head-high Tachi-hai needs to be fixed. Too many of his opponents have figured out how to beat a head-high Shodai. But he still figured out how to get a Yusho and become an Ozeki without fixing it. Go figure.

    That makes sense. I could not see clearly but Tobi's foot appears to be crossing over.

    An impressive win by Teruno. That's why I still say Terunofuji is the one to beat even though Takanosho has one win lead at this point. He is too damn big, and powerful.

    That was fun, fun, fun! I loved it, especially the slow-mo replays.
