  1. Muscles.
  2. This was already the 7th time they met and Ura leads 5-2. Again, the learning curve is working for Ura.
  3. Ura now 10-2...and his fighting style has changed noticeably. The last bashos we often saw a flying Ura, winning just by being the second one to touch the ground. Haven't seen this Ura around a lot lately. Learning curve. Next basho will be very interesting. Mitakeumi back on course to KK, which is nice. Aminishiki 7-5 after 2-4 is even nicer. Ozeki promotion for Takayasu now almost guaranteed. He has to lose his last 3 bouts with weak showings to avoid it.
  4. A zabuton has to fly once in a while, else it slowly dies from depression. Pardon? Ura is quick as f***, not the lightest and weakest to be tossed around, almost perfect ring sense, almost perfect balance. His history pays off now, big time. He has the ability to avoid his opponents to play their own game like nobody else and even if his opponent get's a grip, or forces him onto the bales, he very often is able to just eel out of the situation and win the bout. Maybe he will never be a Yokozuna, but right now his learning curve is not climbing, it is rocketing up into the sky. If he stays without major injury, he will be a joi/sanyaku elevator rikishi at least.
  5. Favorite bout today was Hattorizakura, even beats Hakuho-Takayasu. What an improvement, especially if you compare this to his bout with Kinjo. If this boy fights on like that, he got himself a new fan. Some spirited, superb and spectacular sumo today. Ura can only be described with 'bag of magic'. No special price would be a scandal.
  6. Video link, or it didn't happen!

  8. Thank you both. I just tried to fiddle around a bit, nothing important.
  9. Somewhere in the line of Ura's ancestors, there must be a spanish torrero...OLÉ! Mitakeumi got a good clobbering from the upper ranks, but he showed fantastic sumo. Now it's time to cash in on the lower ranks, KK guaranteed. Same for Yoshikaze. Will Hakuho and Harumafuji steam on, or will Takayasu intercept them? Nice basho so far. Edit: I'd like one thing to change. Kise making every bout an hour long drama is a PITA for making the pics posts. Please quick'n'dirty from here on
  10. Hi, i tried html in text and code window, doesn't work. BBCode in text windows doesn't work either. What do i have to choose in code window for BBCode? And if BBCode works, is there any page with an overview of the commands valid for this forum?
  11. apparently this doesn't work...

  13. Did you know, that although it is a vegetable, in the US it is a fruit by law?
