    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?

    More like 8 wins every other basho

    Haru 2022 Discussion Thread (SPOILERS!)

    My Midwestern American friends that I subject to sumo every two months can get his name down after a couple tries. They lose track of all the Ks.

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho Talk, Haru 2022

    I know I'm speeding a bit here, but Wakatakakage is at 21 wins over two basho with a yusho and sansho. Has anyone detected any excitement for an ozeki run next basho?

    "Plane of the dohyo" and its (non-)existence?

    If there is any kind of rule about this, it has been completely left out of any explanation of the rules anywhere I've seen. If it does exist in whatever passes for an official rule book at the Kyokai, it is enforced in such a subjective manner that it can't really be called a rule.

    Music abroad

    Five Finger Death Punch was the last concert I went to before COVID shut it all down. Hope you get to go sometime, they put on a great show.

    Rikishi Status - 2022 Haru

    I forget...what happened to Kagamiou? Age? Injury? COVID?

    Gyoji and Yobidashi

    I'm speculating here, but I would assume he either borrowed it or the stable has some gyoji robes. Anybody in jonokuchi anything isn't going to be able to buy those.

    Any kabaddi fans here?

    It is on ESPN+. I was lucky enough to be snowed in on Friday and able to catch the final live.

    Any kabaddi fans here?

    May I ask where? We got hooked on the Vivo Pro Kabaddi League, which started in 2013 or so.

    Any kabaddi fans here?

    Anybody watch kabaddi here? Stumbled across it on Hulu and it looks like a sport that's right up my alley. It scratches a lot of the same itches sumo does. It's fast-paced, physical, and the rules seem pretty simple. Just have a few questions if anyone here is a fan.

    Tegata Q

    Impressive thread necromancy. I can't see the ridges, but I could feel them on a newer one.

    Tsurugisho's apartment burgled

    I guess the thieves were watching that day and realized he didn't have anything in his mawashi. It must all be at his apartment.
  14. Chris Gould thinks a lot of things.
  15. Just like Asanoyama. If you count the oyakata pulling him out, he's really missing like 6 and a third basho.
