    Walking the fine line between "Japanophile" and "weeaboo." Sumo, mostly. Figuring out how to make the food I ate when I lived in Japan at home. I make a mean chanko, rice balls, taco rice, barbecue beef (Okinawa dish, not American barbecue), decent soba, Okinawa soba, and yakisoba, and I'm trying to figure out the intricacies of various styles of ramen. Can you tell what I did when I lived in Okinawa?

    The Yobidashi

    Too bad there’s no Kunio on those. Kunio is the best, it’s been empirically proven.

    Hakuhou injured-Kyushu crisis looms

    Depending how he fares against Kokugikan security guards, he may kick himself for not competing.

    Ura Kyushu 2019

    6-1, but I also think he very well could get all 7 this time. I’m leaning more toward six so I’m not disappointed. Hopefully last basho got the “returning to competition” jitters out and there won’t be any mistakes.

    Kyushu 2018

    I predict all the promotees hit the wall, Takayasu falls out, Aminishiki returns to makuuchi for Hatsu, Mitakeumi does great but stays put, and, most importantly, the macaron will be blue.

    Preparations of the Y/O Kyushu 2018

    It’s good to see Mitakeumi working hard before the basho. Hopefully last basho’s disappointment caused him to reevaluate his attitude toward training with other rikishi.

    For the first time in a long time, news of Kisenosato doing well against Takayasu before a basho doesn’t make me roll my eyes.

    Aminishiki hits the big 4-0.

    It’s going to be more of a ceremonial passing around of scissors than an actual haircut.

    Oosunaarashi to join Rizin MMA

    Osuna-a-lossy just feels mean...

    Oosunaarashi to join Rizin MMA

    I’m going to guess OSA misses those 10 second sumo bouts.
  10. I know you’re not actually him because he never only says it once.
  11. Maybe he’s a gifted tokoyama and Ryuuden’s hair is just that crazy. I guess, as long as his hair looks good until he gets both hands on the dohyo...

    Takanohana resigns

    Sounds like a stunt to me, unless he puts in the right form.

    Aurora breaks the record and Aki weigh-in

    He died of congestive heart failure, which is a byproduct of chronic alcoholism, which may well have been caused by his other ailments. Drinking a hundred beers at a time isn’t good for anyone. I was more trying to say that 25 liters of beer is totally possible, someone above expressed doubt. Was it too soon?

    Aurora breaks the record and Aki weigh-in

    Andre the Giant supposedly drank more than that, and Orora is bigger than he was. However, Andre couldn’t be reached for comment...

    Aki Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    I think it’s just nerves, I’d rather he matta all day instead of choking like he used to.
