  1. I don't remember my entry. I do remember dropping Shodai down to M7 and worrying that I had over demoted him. Apparently not.
  2. Are lower ranked rikishi "allowed" to beat Hakuho during butsugari?
  3. Does Mongolia allow its citizens to have dual citizenship? If they do than Hakuho could retire immediately. If they don't than it could be awhile.
  4. Yes, but back then, East only faced West.
  5. Crossover matches. At least 4 each day. 28-16=12. 12+4=16.
  6. Yes, to the above question.
  7. Yes.
  8. John, I would love to see an interview with the lone American, Musashikuni. Thank you.
  9. You could make the case, "Once a Yokozuna, always a Yokozuna." As for the pic, it's 4 active and one recently retired Yokozunae. Terukuni hadn't had his danpatsu-shiki yet.
  10. Nagoya 1974, was my first sumo basho. I was 12 years old. Yokozuna Kotozakura retired before the basho began. He was 33 years old. Yokozuna Kitanofuji retired on day 3 after losing his first two matches. He was 32 years old. Ozeki Kitanoumi was promoted after the basho was over. Most likely because of the two retirements. Sadanoyama would of been 36 years old in July 1974. A bit long in the tooth. Tamanoumi, on the other hand, would have been only 30 years old.
  11. I did not know that. So, Yokozuna Wakanohana I's daughter married Yokozuna Wakanohana II? Did they stay married? Did they have children? What ever happened to II?
  12. I tried it three times. It works for me.
  13. Incorrect. The "helper" is on Haru and Natsu.
  14. Pawn Sums is talking about himself. April Fools!
  15. Some people call me "The Gangster of Love".
