    Pink macaron! Nobody got it correct.

    Yes, no winner for the macaron poll.

    Broken bone in the foot, massive pain. If it's the wrong bone it will be not a matter of just 2 weeks to heal. We will see Gagamaru in Makushita pretty soon.

    Kakuryu vs. Hakuho = instant classic. Yokozuna Sumo at it's finest. The grip changes were simply amazing. Perfect finale for this basho.

    The weather was much better than last year, way less hot and humid. The dohyo seems to be in pristine condition and i haven't noticed any complaints about it being slippery. But nonetheless Onosho managed to get a makekoshi by "felt" slippiyotoshi. What the heck? Seriously. Is he injured or something? Big disappointment.

    Wow! Did we eventually see the final form of future Ozeki Endo?

    What rikishi do you miss the most?

    You all are forgetting Takamisakari...and because he's only one of many, i'll go with the missed active rikishi and Ura. With Enho, Ishiura, Kotoeko and Terutsuyoshi, he'd be the salt in the chanko.

    How far will Terunofuji go?

    In less than 2 years he dropped plummeted from Ozeki and Yokozuna prospect to Jonidan 48. From there he scored a 7-0 Jonidan yusho, a 6-1 at Sandanme 49 and (at the moment) is 5-1 as Makushita 59. With a 6-1 he will be ranked ~Ms 28 next basho. Another 6-1 as Ms 28 would mean ~Ms 10, with another 6-1 giving him a shot at Juryo promotion from ~Ms 2. Two consecutive 7-0 or 7-0 + 6-1 from Ms 28 would mean Juryo promotion in just 2 basho. If he were a newcomer, theses numbers would create some hype. But it's Terunofuji and even hardcore fans have to admit his former glory mainly came from his strength, not technical skills. Will he be able to regain his former strength, or has his body taken too much damage? I'm referring more to issues like diabetis and hepatitis. Will he adapt to the situation and get some lessons from Ajigawa-oyakata?

    Aminishiki injured/ Intai

    But why? He's no aging football star. He has no need to elongate a downward spiral career by playing with less talented.
