    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?

    2019 a new record low most wins of the year ?

    Mitakeumi will get 12 next basho. It will also be the first time a specific prediction of mine comes true.

    Classic Isamihashi

    Speaking of which, the Kansas City Chiefs new quarterback walks and moves a lot like Hattorizakura, once I noticed it I can’t unsee it. Which is too bad, since he’s the best new quarterback of the last few years and the Chiefs are my team. It’s just hard to take Mahomes seriously as an elite athlete when he reminds me of...him.

    Takakeisho injury update

    Baseless speculation is what we do here between tournaments.

    Do you type your own messages, or do you have your tsukebito do it now? And if your tsukebito do it, and make a mistake, how do you discipline them? I’m asking for a friend.

    We need a facepalm emoji...unless he’s just going to do fan service.

    New Takanofuji Scandal

    You’re not allowed to hit with your fists in sumo, duh. it gets you disqualified in the ring, and now it gets you disqualified from the stable too.

    2019 Aki Basho Discussion (spoiler alert!)

    Sometimes things like that happen. No real reason, the matchmakers don’t always seem to have a solid rhyme or reason for some of their choices. Sometimes they throw people a bone, sometimes not. I swear they made matches one day a few basho ago based on mawashi color.

    I had a Kisenosato flashback when Takakeisho looked down at his chest after he lost.

    Ok...time to gambrarise(sp) predictions !

    My hopes for gambarization are Takakeisho and Endo. Endo needs to kk in sanyaku. He should have done it long ago but that injury and its improper treatment set him back years.

    Takakeisho injury update

    I used to work for a guy that had been a semi-pro skateboarder in his younger days. He’d been in some skateboarding videos showing off but never got anywhere. He said he knew it was time to quit when he first felt nervous going down a ramp because it would make him pull back and the half pipe is something you just blindly have to commit to. Seems like Takakeisho is at that point himself; he got hurt and it’s rattled his cage a bit. Best thing for him to do is win some matches and get that confidence back.*

    Enho - predictions?

    6 or 7 wins, but I’ll go out on a limb and say he’ll keep us waiting until the last couple days to go makekoshi.

    Might want to tell him that, but if his big thing is to go back and get arrested, I hope he rethinks it.
