    Kensho Aki 2016

    You can see them waiting to bring the banners on. One guy brings them out in some kind of bag that looks like he's carrying a big sleeping bag over his shoulder. Then they same guys just come off after one round of banners and grab another for the big matches..

    Sekitori Torikumi Aki Basho 2016

    Ok, let's see if I can get back on track: 14 Tochiozan (K) 1-4 WIN Tough call but somebody has to win right? Takarafuji (S) 2-3 15 Kisenosato (O) 3-2 WIN Poor, poor Shodai. Shodai (M2) 0-5 16 Okinoumi (M1) 5-0 Kotoshogiku (O) 4-1 Okinoumi is running out of gas.He get's bumpitied by Koto. 17 Goeido (O) 5-0 Takayasu (S) 4-1 WIN Taka has a great record against Goeido and he's on fire. 18 Tochinoshin (M2) 1-4 Terunofuji (O) 3-2 WIN Terrorfuji owns Tochi. 19 Harumafuji (Y) 4-1 Takanoiwa (M3) 2-3 WIN Taka has been looking good this basho despite his record. Harumafuji has looked a little more tired each day, just a bit. Upset time. 20 Kaisei (K) 1-4 Kakuryu (Y) 3-2 WIN Kak has been looking lousy but he owns Kasei and Kasei gets nervous against the Yokozunas. No bonus picks. All these matchups look boring except for maybe Chiyoshoma vs. Ikioi.

    Well, not so great this time. 4-3 for the sanyaku, 4-5 with bonus picks. I guess we can't expect upsets every day. I need to stop with the bonus picks, they're killing my record.

    Kensho Aki 2016

    You'd think on a 4-0, now 5-0, run there would be some sponsors that would jump on the bandwagon until he lost one anyway.
  6. Harrumafuji overdid the henka there and it almost cost him. Shodai was one good push away from throwing him over.
  7. Wow, if Tochinoshin knee was good he would have had his kinboshi. The knee just gave out in the end.
  8. Takayasu is looking awesome. Kasei is winning nothing that last more than a few seconds.
  9. Luckily for Okinoumi he gets a torinaoshi when Shohozan couldn't keep his foot in. Okinoumi easily wins the rematch, 5-0. Great job.
  10. Chiyootori gets the right number of bounces this time and gets his first win of the basho. good job.
  11. Amakaze gets the first win for the west.
  12. Woot! Kotoyuki starts out strong but can't put Endo away and grab the endough. First loss for Kotoyuki. East has swept all matches so far.
  13. Gagamru is looking positively svelte. Great win for him today but he looked very flushed, not well.
  14. Ura gets slaughtered after failing in his signature technique of falling slower than his opponent which led to a torinaoshi.
  15. It's a good night to be a Chiyo in Juryo. 3 for 3.
  16. Yes, pretty amazing. he now needs to win out to get to Juryo.
  17. Ishiura has started the last 3 basho 4-0. For the first time he's now 5-0. Has he finally broken through?
  18. Sato lost again, what the heck has happened to him? He didn't just hit the wall he's now a brick. Aminishiki got another win and is 2-3. The guy is amazing. If he gets his KK there should be a special prize just for him. Osunaarashi is replacing Homarefuji tomorrow so he can cash in on some of that Kensho cash from the movie he did if he wins.

    Alright, we're pretty close. To tell the truth Goeido and Kakuryu matches are the ones I am the most iffy about.

    Thanks. There was a lot of luck there. Especially Okinoumi over Terunofuji .

    Well, I can't complain about 7-1 (7-2) with the bonus call) so let's try it again: 14 Takayasu (S) 3-1 WIN Taka says you know what would look good on an ozeki run? A yusho! Kasei doesn't seem to have much stamina this basho. Kaisei (K) 1-3 15 Tochiozan (K) 1-3 WIN Koto Bauer is an inconsistent superpower. Kotoshogiku (O) 3-1 16 Goeido (O) 4-0 Takarafuji (S) 2-2 WIN Frontrunner pressure gets to Goeido and Takarafuji benefits. 17 Myogiryu (M4) 1-3 Terunofuji (O) 2-2 WIN Terrorfuji takes out a tough loss on Myogiryu. 18 Kisenosato (O) 2-2 WIN The only rikishi to beat Kise in their 1st match up since Kise has joined the sanyaku is Ichinojo in that glorious debut. Takanoiwa is no Ichinojo. Takanoiwa (M3) 2-2 19 Tochinoshin (M2) 1-3 WIN Tochi continues to channel the spirit of Aminishiki and gets a kinboshi. Kakuryu (Y) 2-2 20 Harumafuji (Y) 3-1 WIN Shodai's Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Basho continues. Shodai (M2) 0-4 Bonus: Okinoumi comes crashing back to reality with a loss to Shohozan leaving Kotoyuki as the only undefeated rikishi. Double bonus: Ura wins his makuuchi debut when (being lighter) he falls to the ground slower than Daieisho. if sumo was performed in a vacuum this would be a tie.
  23. I can see the winner of this at 12-3 in a playoff. As far as Kise in the last 4 days going 4-0 there is probably the easiest it will ever get for him this basho. No Hakuho, Harumafuji is looking good but beatable and I still say there's a 50-50 chance Kakuryu goes kyujo before that match even happens. Even if Kakuryu toughs it out the only sanyaku looking worse than Kise is Kakuryu. If the undefeated don't stay hot and it comes down to Kise, Harumafuji and Kak I can see Kise winning this basho in a playoff. if he does that, even with 12 wins, I think they make him a Yokozuna, especially if he has 2 beat Harumafuji twice to do it.

    Harumafuji does the best dohyƍ-iri of the 3 current Yokozuna IMHO.
