  1. It will be a tough fight to the last day Unfortunately I failed to submit my entries(for all games) for one day already. But it wasn't my fault... I just had to many drams while I am on Islay hopefully I'll have internet access for the rest of the Basho.
  2. Preparations of the Y/O- May 2018

    Just curious: Do they have something similar in place? Or just the house altar and the "sacred stuff" buried under the dohyo?

  4. Preparations of the Y/O- May 2018

    I can understand that you expect Kise to sit this one out as well, but Hakuhou too?
  5. Kotoshogiku - Intaishinai

    His earnings as a Maegashira could still be good enough to save more money for retirement.
  6. Preparations of the masses- May 2018

    Please don't start jinxing the next one I really like Tochinoshin and Mitakeumi...

    Blues Brothers: Chiyo- Style
  8. Banzuke for Natsu 2018

    I see that Chiyootori has meanwhile gone down all the way to Sandanme. Does anyone on here know if he will compete again this Basho? And what it is that kept him away from the dohyo for so long (whas it something like a shoulder injury?) ?
  9. Haru jungyo 2018

    As already mentioned by Kinta: Hakuho just tweeted that he'll take a break for 2-3 days as he was close to get a pneumonia.
  10. Funny videos and photos of rikishi at play

    Is that some kind of hint to play Chain Gang ? If so I would´ve expected @Kintamayama to use the opportunity to promote the game with this shot of his favourite NTNO
  11. This May sound familiar- GTB

    Less than a week to go and I almost forgot to submit my entry... but I used the unexpected great weather and created my Banzuke on the porch which was quite a torture this time. Thought I might as well bump this thread and remind my buddy @Rocks to get out of hibernation mode and fulfill his duty
  12. Women mount dohyo during emergency at jungyo

    Even if it was it's hard to understand why they suddenly changed this. And from today's pov it certainly doesn't make them look very smart.
  13. Women mount dohyo during emergency at jungyo

    That's probably thanks to the US influence... as they are the only ones I was aware of using the term soccer for football! And thanks to @John Gunning for the article!
  14. TV Japan no longer on Dish Network

    But OTOH it's got lots of funny extras like font day, "the box" and some snarky comments
  15. Takanohana-devil's advocate

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wajima_Hiroshi I linked this article for all those too young or not knowing enough about Sumo history from the 80's or 70's (like myself).
