    Really?

    Yeah, no need to. Kintamayama already did that in today's video.

    Damn, no Takarafuji zensho yusho Btw, this was the first time since 2017.03 he started with 5-0 and only the second time in his whole sekitori career. 2017.03 ended in a 7-8 after he lost the next 6 bouts.

    Oh, it must have been a good day for fans of snuff movies.

    Natsu Basho 2024

    Back to 7 wallees. We lost a career wallee, but got a replacement. Takerufuji and Onosato still marching on with impressive results. Takakeisho bounced back and switched seats on the kadoban carousel with Kirishima.
  6. What is the drinking age in Japan? And some posts read, like the law was changed quite recently.

    Is it sumo@webtrek.com you're talking about?
  9. To use a German proverb: Isegahama doesn't have all pickets on his fence anymore. They want Hakuho out, they just don't have the balls to fire him. Make his life hell until he quits.

    Haru Basho 2024

    Only 5 wallees this time, but 3 of them are still waiting for their first career MK. Takerufuji is 1 of only 7 Rikishi in the 15-day era to rush through juryo in only 1 basho. The last one to do this was Endo. And he needed only 9 basho to get from mae-zumo to makuuchi. He's tied for 1st place with Jokoryu. Takakeisho is kadoban for the 8th time. Will he be able to avoid a second demotion?

    A monoii after an excellent bout to end the basho. Hilarious Haru!

    Another magnificent throw by Hoshoryu.

    He was walking pretty normal. If i didn't know of yesterdays events, i wouldn't have noticed anything. Wonder what's the diagnosis.

    WOW and congratulations to Takerufuji.

    Close enough, IT/network guy. It's tape or WD40. In this case i'm going with lots of tape. It'd look like he had elephantiasis, but he could at least use it to some extent.

    Haru 2024 discussion (results)

    What if they put his foot in enough tape to immobilize it? It doesn't hurt that much, he just needs some stability in his ankle. Going down fighting!

    Haru 2024 discussion (results)

    Corrected. Takerufuji is a monster and this isn't even his final form. I hope he stays healthy. BUT the extra shove, long after Wakamotoharu was out, wasn't necessary. I hope this was just an incident. A rookie doesn't shove a Sekiwake in his debut basho, no matter how good he is.

    Somewhen in the 2050s or 2060s... Grandpa, tell me a story! *sigh* I guess you're old enough now, kiddo. Let me tell you the story of Haru Basho 2024...

    Terunofuji is now at 19 kinboshi. And he "achieved" that with only 126 bouts. Since Kiribayama botched his run, there seems no short term relief in sight. Poor Teru and poor NHK treasurer.
  23. $13.5M in total for the new heya on a 500m² lot, which costs about ~$9.4M ? I knew Tokyo is expensive, but that's ridiculous. Completely baka.

    What do we say to the god of katasukashi? Not today you little shit! Of course i'd fancied an Ura win, but it was still entertaining. All the big boys combined 9-9 after day 2. M1e to M5e all 1-1. I hope this doesn't turn into a Haru Horribilis. Onosato yusho?
