    Future basho schedule

    Please a moment of silence for the poor guy who designed the perfect, but now useless 2020-logo.

    Shikihide beya troubles

    One could think with corona, Abi, Tagonoura and Nakagawa there is more than enough material to fill the Sommerloch. I know that not all of the okamisan are role models, but that...*phew* By the way, why 9? Shouldn't it be 20? http://sumodb.sumogames.de/Rikishi.aspx?shikona=&heya=78&shusshin=-1&b=202007&high=-1&hd=-1&entry=-1&intai=-1&sort=1

    Corona and sumo

    Looks like greek restaurants are all alike over the world. Huge portions, swimming in fat and absolutely delicious.

    Corona and sumo

    Sounds like a reaction to the Abi-mess. You can't stop the kids from messing around, so at least make them wear protection. Any chance this might reduce Abi's punishment?

    Whenever, Wherever Basho 202*

    For apparent reasons i call this the Whenever, Wherever Basho. Poll has no specific closing date. Enjoy some music while you're waiting: Disclaimer/introduction for new players The Wall: If a sumotori gets his first makekoshi (MK = losing record) in that respective division, it's called "hitting the wall" (KK = winning record, means missing the wall, which is a good thing). For makuuchi this basho it's Kiribayama, Kotonowaka and Kotoshoho. For Kotoshohoit's his first try in makuuchi. In juryo we have 0 guys to fight the wall. Promotion/demotion/kadoban: Asanoyama was promoted to Ozeki after last basho. If gets a MK, he will not be demoted, but ranked as kadoban Ozeki. A follow-up MK means demotion. Takakeisho is kadoban after his 7-8 in march, it's his 2nd time. Will he manage to stay Ozeki this time? Guess the colour of the giant macaron: One of the prices for the yusho winner is a giant fake macaron (as placeholder for a load of real, normal sized macarons from one of the best Pâtisseries in Paris). The colour varies and it has become a popular game to guess it.

    Whenever, Wherever Basho 202*

    Pink macaron and the yusho for @just_some_guy with 5 correct answers. Jun-yusho, trailing 1 behind for @MumboJumbo, @ChickyStarr, @Mmikasazuma, @Churaumi and myself. Technique-prize for @pmac, only one to hit the macaron.

    The last and only 13-2 from M15-M17 was Hajimayama (M17w) in 1949.05. Next basho he was ranked M4w. http://sumodb.sumogames.de/Query.aspx?show_form=0&form1_rank=m15-m17&form1_wins=13&form1_losses=2 Congratulations to Terunofuji for winning the basho and for getting back from jonidan in the first place, my depest respect for that Barring injury it is absolutely possible for him to reach Yokozuna.

    Damn tomoesen, totally forgot it could happen today. Woke up, turned on the TV still a bit dazed and confused. Saw Meisei vs. Hoshoryu, torikumi said we already had Ichinojo vs. Shohozan. What kind of parallel universe is this???

    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 6-1 as Makushita 59. 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? EDIT: Results updated

    Mitakeumi and Shodai win their matches to force a 3-way-playoff. Shodai wins over Terunofuji, but both get flattened by Mitakeumi for the yusho. The officials - high from hand sanitizer fumes - give both the nod *BAM* 4 Ozeki next basho.

    Lower division celebs results

    I beg to differ. 6-1 at Ms19e will place him in striking range to juryo next basho. http://sumodb.sumogames.de/Query.aspx?show_form=0&rowcount=5&form1_rank=ms19&form1_wins=6&form1_losses=1
