    Trivia bits

    Updating the above palindromic W-L-A. I noticed Kotoyuki had a 4-7-4 this past basho, but Hokutofuji had one back in May bringing the total to 20. Of the 3-9-3 we also now have Akua and Kaisei for three in 2018 alone bringing that up to 21 total instances.

    Latest kabu-babu changes

    Speaking of Deanoumi-ichimon rikishi, I imagine that Goeido might be wanting a share in the next couple of years. After ex-Tamanofuji we get four in 2021, all very close to each other.

    Latest kabu-babu changes

    Thinking of Yamashina, how long can a retired kabu-owner hold onto the ownership of a kabu?

    THE PRIZES The Kanto-sho (Highest Base pts) went to Sakura with 173, which is the highest we've had for more than a year a possibly a new record. The Shukun-sho (Highest Bonus pts) went to Sakura and Achiyama with 106. The Gino-sho (Highest Base pts per winning rikishi) went to shimodahito with 6.59. Congratulations to all prize winners W-L RECORDS Sakura 15-0 Achiyama 11-4 Gansekiiwa 10-5 Gaijingai 9-6 shimodahito 8-7 gernobono 7-8 ChickyStarr 7-8 Tenshinhan 6-9 WAKATAKE 6-9 RaeucherLax 6-9 Jakusotsu 5-10 Suwihuto 5-10 chishafuwaku 4-11 fujisan 4-11 Sawamura 0-15 YOKOZUNA & OZEKI STATUS & RUNS Yokozuna Sakura performed well winning the Yusho. Ozeki Achiyama was kadoban, but gets the Jun-Yusho. This means he is now on a tsuna-run. shin-Ozeki Tenshinhan was MK and is now kadoban. Sadly both ChickyStarr and chishafuwaku fell to MK and will not be promoted to Ozeki. Banzuke to follow.

    GTB March to your room with no dinner, Mr! 2019

    With all this woe, I feel like I actually need to look at it this evening, instead of waiting.

    Aside from the thumbs up ex-Takekaze looks like he's on his way to the office. Which I suppose he is. What jobs in the NSK do recently-retired kabu-holding rikishi do? I haven't seen any appointments mentioned. Is it a sort of general training time?

    Sumo Reference Updates

    The kabu page needs some updating. 1) Takanohana is no longer part of the NSK. 24th Sept 2018 was the date of the thread. The departure was prolonged by a few days due to technicalities. I don't know what you would want to put in. 2) Also, the Takanohana-ichimon is no longer a thing, and all the independent heya went elsewhere. a) Tatsunami beya moved to Dewanoumi-ichimon 18th Sep 2018 b) Onomatsu, Otake and Chiganoura beyas moved from Takanohana-ichimon to Nishonoseki. Also moving to Nishonoeski are Shikoroyama and Minato beyas. Shikoroyama and Minato were listed under Tokitsukaze despite being independent. 21st Sept 2018. 3) ex-Satoyama is borrowing Sanoyama from November 23rd, 2018 4) At some unidentified point, it seems as though Ikioi has the Kasugayama kabu 5) Kisenosato took up his kabu on Jan 16th 2019 6) Takekaze took up his kabu on Jan 22nd. Some dates may be a bit off.

    Actually scored some points. Which is a surprise. My last day pick in Quad came down to Daishomaru or Yoshikaze, and I went with Daishomaru. Oh well. But since I usually end up with 5 wins in Quad, I'm taking this as a good result for me.

    I am sorry. I don't know what to do about that. Unlike Achiyama, I am unable to check to see who has posted picks before the deadline. Just due to how my day is. Did you get a thank you for participating screen?

    My first ever 1-man GBL in Bench (I think). It goes with my 10-man GBL on Day 2. They were definitely a week 1 squad.

    For me, wondering if I get one more point or not doesn't make a bout more interesting. Actually, the bouts are more interesting for me if I don't have a rooting interest.
