    Ridiculous Predictions for Natsu 2019

    * In a match against Kaisei, Enho hops on him like a backpack. Unsure what to do about this, Kaisei walks out of the ring, hoping this will result in a torinaoshi. Enho is pronounced the winner. * Chiyotairyu and Tochiozan both refuse to participate in the basho until the new emperor settles the debate over who does a better Elvis impersonation. * For the second consecutive basho, Ichinojo manages to not fall asleep on the dohyo.
  2. Would they actually suspend a yokozuna though, even if it was a seemingly benign suspension? I'd think that suspending a yokozuna would be seen as reflecting poorly on the sport itself, so they'd want to not do that. I know Asashoryu got a suspension at one point, but I'm not aware of any other yokozunae receiving such a penalty.

    Enho vs. Ichinojo?

    The only thing that can hurt Hakuho is Hakuho.

    The official kimarite-decider must have fallen asleep.

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Hatsu 2019

    His body's been trashed for a while. The way I see it, he just had a run of unusually good health that allowed him to perform at his full potential and make Ozeki. Now he's back to being the walking wounded. It's a shame, but it seems to be his lot in life.

    Reddit.

    My experience in /r/sumo is that while most of its denizens aren't as knowledgeable about the sport as the folks here, they're enthusiastic fans and generally pleasant to one another. Every now and then it seems like someone stumbles into there from god-knows-where and is an arsehole, but they're the exception rather than the rule.

    Makunouchi Yushos in 2019

    Hakuho - 2 Kakuryu - 2 Takayasu - 1 And then someone else will sneak one out. No idea who. I'll guess Onosho I suppose.

    UDH Kyushu Basho 2018

    I'm not who you were referring to, but as someone who did decently without Nishikigi in his lineup, I will readily admit that I have no idea how I missed putting him in there and as soon as the basho started I realized I'd forgotten him and thought I was screwed.

    Games Talk Kyushu 2018

    Has this basho been as much of a UDH roller coaster for everyone else as it has me? I've gone from 44th place on Day 4 to 1st on Day 12 (trending downward again for 13) with some big ups and downs between. I wonder if maybe the scores are closer together this time around, allowing for more rapid and dramatic placement changes.
