    Aki Basho 2021 - Discussion Thread (Spoilers!)

    Second sentence confirmed; my cat did a hell of a henka last time I tried to take him to the vet.

    Most underrated/overlooked rikishi?

    Just from my perspective, not in general, but Myogiryu. Not that he's done anything super amazing but I thought when he dropped to Juryo a few years ago that he was done, yet he's still around (and having a nice basho at the moment). I constantly forget he exists.

    Pictures of Chiyomaru wearing shirts that say Chiyomaru

    I saw that, but I'm looking for the man himself wearing a Chiyomaru shirt.
  5. I'm looking for what the title says. I have the one pictured here, but I recall seeing others and can't for the life of me find them. Please post any that you have. Thank you.

    Banzuke for Aki 2021

    Poor Meatball finally puts together a basho where he looks like he's trying and can't get the bump to Makuuchi. If he MK's this basho I shall be disappointed but unsurprised. :(

    Hattorizakura (Shounanzakura)-intai

    Showing my curmudgeonly side here, but I'll be glad to not hear of him anymore. I can't imagine how someone could (in theory) train every day and still be that awful unless they were severely mentally challenged, a quadriplegic, or deliberately losing. There is in my opinion no place for deliberately losing in professional sports, especially in so unconvincing a manner as he always did. Sumo is supposed to honor the gods, yes? If I were the gods his matches would have pissed me off so bad that I'd send some sort of highly contagious airborne respiratory ailment down to earth as a punishment... Anyway, best of luck to him and hopefully he's better at something else than he was at sumo.

    sumo jokes/memes

    You're all forgetting DMX's classic: "Yago make me lose my mind/up in here, up in here"

    Sumo ‘What ifs?’

    Probably, but it would have been nice to see their careers end on a better note.

    Sumo ‘What ifs?’

    If I were able to take "what-ifs" and make them into reality I'd go with "What if Harumafuji never bonked Takanoiwa with a remote control?" or "What if Kisenosato didn't injure/properly rehabbed his pec?" I miss seeing those two on the dohyo.

    Nagoya Basho 2021

    Between a Mitakeumi promotion, a Takayasu promotion, and aliens dropping out of the sky to abduct Hakuho and Terunofuji, thus opening the door for a second Tokushoryu yusho, I'd say option #3 is the most likely.

    Trivia bits

    Just noticed that Hokutofuji has alternated kachikoshi and makekoshi for the past 10 basho (since September 2019). He's scheduled for a kachikoshi this basho.

    Nagoya Yusho Predictions?

    I'll echo this prediction, but I expect Hakuho to be out before day 5 if he enters at all.

    The English commentators- views

    Not knowing his name I've called him Phil. I love how he always looks vaguely annoyed at having to do such a mundane task despite his obvious talent. BACK ON TOPIC THOUGH, I don't speak any Japanese other than the sumo terms I've picked up but I always prefer the Japanese commentary. I can pick out the commentator (one of whom my daughter informed me sounds like Stitch from the Disney movie and now I can't un-hear it) shouting out whatever kimarite is being attempted and what kimarite ends up succeeding and honestly that's all I need. I suppose if it was my first week of sumo viewing I'd like the beginner-level explanations but after one or two basho I'd be done with it. I don't need to be told what I'm seeing and I don't recall them ever offering any profound insights.

    How many yusho will Terunofuji win in his career?

    This, like everything else involving him, is just asking "how long will he hold together before he retires?" With Hakuho fading, Terunofuji has to be the favorite going into every tournament, but yeah.... injuries. So my guess is 8-9 since he seems to be as stable as we could hope, but who knows? Every basho could be his last.
