    UDH Kyushu Basho 2019

    It's always a conundrum whether to take a Yokozuna in this game. Seems like either they go kyujo early and they're the best pick or they go 13-2 and you feel like a doofus for taking them.

    Takakeisho injury update

    The English article referred to it as a "strain." Not sure if that's an accurate translation or an accurate diagnosis, but if so the injury is not nearly as severe as one might fear. [For those less familiar with English, a "strain" is a relatively minor tear and in this case would be just the muscle, not the tendons. I'd wager he would (or at least should) still sit the next tournament, but it would be far less severe than the Kisenosato injury.]

    Ridiculous Predictions for Aki 2019

    Terutsuyoshi accidentally gets salt on the Emperor's pet slug and is banned for life. The mischievous demon that once possessed Goeido (leading him to his zensho yusho) now possesses Azumaryu, leading him to a yusho which ends up being his only career makuuchi kachikoshi. Chiyotairyu and Tochiozan take turns singing "Jailhouse Rock" and "Ain't Nothing But a Hound Dog" at the opening ceremonies.

    Preparations of the masses- Aki 2019

    Terunofuji looks like he's moving better than we've seen of late.

    Enho - predictions?

    7-8, give or take 1 in either direction.

    When will be the next basho to see 3 Yokozuna on day 15?

    While our two Yokozunae are still performing well when healthy, they're for sure in the twilight of their careers. I don't see anyone in makuuchi right now that I see as a candidate, at least not soon. Add in the requirement that they all make it to day 15 and it could be a decade or more before it happens.

    As usual my results are garbage at first with a late resurgence. There was a lot of unpredictability this time IMO. I don't think many people saw Terutsuyoshi going off like he did, for example. Aoiyama and Kotoeko outperformed my expectations as well.

    Terunofuji Watch

    Whether or not that specifically is what destroyed his knees, it's a tactic that only works against good competition when he's in decent health, so it's not encouraging to see he hasn't altered that habit.

    I think his matta calls on day 5 were a bit much (looked like both guys had their hands down on one) but usually I fully approve and find his angry shouting amusing.

    Holy late resurgence, Batman! Thought I was destined for mediocrity on this one.

    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.
  14. 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.
