    Hatsu 2022 ISP carnage

    24 KK, 155 MK, 100 double digit MK. That's brĂ¼tal! It looks like some MK player could even rise in rank, because everyone around them effed up even more horribly. M8w Achiyama is the highest rank with a KK. That will be a hell of a jump in ranks for a mere 8-7. Then there are Pirikarafuji (9-6 M12W) and Kishikaisei (9-6 M15W). And that's it for makuuchi KKs. I wonder where Gobofuji (10-5 J10W) will end up. Could we do a GTB special for the next ISP banzuke?

    34th Shikimori Inosuke passed away

    Yeah, i remember that voice very well. Good old Eurosport times.

    Oh, i don't see Mitakeumi as Yokozuna. Maybe if Terunofuji busts his knees in the near future and he manages to keep up his game. But at the moment i'm sure others will surpass him in the long run.

    That fancy white rope will forever dangle right over his head and he'll never be able to catch it with his tiny T-Rex arms. Abi on the other hand... Mitakeumi struggling so long for his promotion wasn't really connected to being injury prone.

    Sorry, but Takakeisho missed his opportunity. Given his health problems, he'll be lucky to stay Ozeki.

    Yeah, how often did Hiro mention that? Sometimes he's just too funny

    Hatsu Basho 2022

    The yusho race is still open, until there is an official decision whether to promote Mitakeumi or not. But since promotion is guaranteed, i hereby humbly declare myself the winner with a jun-yusho for @Kaminariyuki.

    THAT was fun. Abi = next Ozeki after Mitakeumi.

    Hatsu 2022 - Day 11: Wardrobe malfunction?

    BMI is stupid. It just sees the weight, but not if that weight is made of muscles or fat. Yes, there are not few sumotori, who have too much fat, but for the most their body-fat is surprisingly lower than you would expect. But when we are forced to talk about sumotori and their size, we should at least switch to Fluffy's six levels of fatness, to make it sound funnier: - big - healthy - husky - fluffy - Damn! - Aww, hell no!

    *Ooof* That tawara to the sternum looked painful. But i don't doubt Tamawashi showing up for his 1400th consecutive bout tomorrow. GO TAMA!

    My thoughts. But why buy only 1? I'd have a stack sitting beside me, ready to go full auto

    We've seen a few lopsided heads-on, so Mitakeumi dominating Tamawashi is nothing unusal. But that, of all sekitori, it is Tamawashi, amazes me again and again. I just can't get that into my head. A kitten has a better chance at bringing Mitakeumi to his knees, than Tamawashi. Shodai amazes me in another way, because when you think it can't get worse, Shodai exclaims "challenge accepted". Please take him to a psychologist. Poor lad.

    You forgot his first 7-0 2018.01, which ended at 8-7.

    Kaisei's back looks like he had some fun recently. Sumimasen in advance.

    The best day of sumo we had in a long time. It had it all. Spectacular and/or intense bouts, henka, monoii, torinaoshi, isamiashi and Terunofuji unleashing his inner E Honda. And the cherry on top was Ura and Magaki watching the review and having a laugh.

    Kesho mawashi no longer new

    Sadly i can't help @JackieScamm, but i would like to point out, that there's another, interesting kesho-mawashi for sale on that platform. It was property of Kitanofuji aka grumpy old tv-guy. https://buyee.jp/item/yahoo/auction/s1028054063?conversionType=service_page_search
