    Nagoya Basho 2021

    Thanks for that. I had gone looking for a recent photo of him & come up empty. He does look healthy & happy.

    Preparations of the masses- Nagoya 2021

    Me too. In fact your post is how I found out that it doesnt start this weekend

    Wakatakakaka . . . . . . I cant even say that after a runup :)

    Non-K-November basho 2020 Discussion (spoiler space)

    Noooooo!!! There goes my pick for the yusho!

    September (Aki) Basho- offical thread (yay..)

    I just watched that because of your comment. Ouch!!!

    Corona and sumo

    Not at all surprised. I think they should have cancelled but I didn't think they would dare.

    Hatsu 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    That's funny. If I were Tokushouryuu I'd send a good bottle of sake around.

    Hatsu 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    You know that really wouldnt surprise me. I thought before his bout on day 1 that he had the look of someone who had had enough and would have much rather been somewhere else.

    Ex-Kurohimeyama passes away

    Exactly my point thanks. Look at this video & neither wrestler makes any real effort to get even close to the ground.

    Ex-Kurohimeyama passes away

    Watching some of his bouts on Youtube really shows that they were much more relaxed about the tachiai then. His hands dont even get close to the dohyo

    Haru Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    If I remember correctly it's also a sort of security role to make sure that no one gets in the way of the rikishi and is traditionally the first job a retiree is given. Sort of a 'it doesnt matter who you were in the ring you start at the bottom again' thing

    Ridiculous Predictions for Haru 2019

    The Shimpan decide to have words with Hakuho for standing on the tawara after bouts & he promptly goes kyujo Kakuryu starts well but on day 6 pulls so hard he is last seen exiting the hall at speed, backward, prompting a nationwide search. Tochinoshin grunts so hard while trying to lift Inchinojo he does himself a damage and has to retire Yoshikaze yosho.

    New recruits for Haru 2019

    https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Kenshu "The ancient Japanese art of murdering a whole family for the indiscretions of a single person." Wait. That can't be right :)

    Otsukasa. That's a name I havent heard for a while. Nice to see him well & still involved.
