    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's health problems

    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.
  7. 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.

    Chiyotairyu says thanks.

    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.

    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.

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