    I am having trouble figuring out how Daieisho reached 30 kensho on Day 11. His last win of the tournament was on Day 9, where he picked up a tidy 7 kensho, reaching his kensho total for the tournament. If he were listed at 30 on Day 11, why did he not appear on Day 9's list with 30 kensho? He lost on Day 10 and had a fusensho on Day 11 (no kensho gain). My total for Daieisho is 21. Happy if someone could set me straight.

    Watching the kensho parade for the final bout of the tournament, I was reminded of the good old days with Hakuho. His final day bouts generally reached the 60 prize cap, and today the total was 57. Tidy little purse for the co-junyusho winner. I suspect he would have won even without this healthy incentive! (That is to say, I doubt Takakeisho was in it for the money.)

    That seems to be the million-dollar question. Given that he was 1-1 versus Makushita opponents in the tournament suggests that sticking it out in Makushita would probably not help his cause. Don't get me wrong. I admire the man and the wrestler. But at this stage in his career, he looks pretty beaten up. No one can really appreciate the pain professional athletes subject themselves to, but seeing all the cupping marks on his back and how readily he seems to give up in certain situations, makes me think that he will follow Shohozan's example. Shohozan started in sumo in March 2006, whereas Kaisei started in September of the same year. I'd say retirement is definitely in the cards. But will Kaisei do it before the next banzuke is set? Shohozan's announcement came too late, and so he ended up taking a spot on the latest tournament's banzuke. No doubt, it is a difficult decision.

    Mainichi Newspapers presented a sample championship portrait with Ichi in one of his debut keshomawashi. That suggests to me that they weren't expecting an Ichinojo yusho, and dug up an old file photo for the occasion ... rather last minute. Will the final portrait match the sample awarded today, or can Mainichi update the photo? That's something I've never kept track of.

    Agreed, but I was under the impression that double-digit wins was almost a prerequisite for consideration...

    OK, I know few people are really all that interested in the rikishi that seem perennially trapped down in sumo hell. But I decided I'd draw a little attention to Asabenkei here. Since the torikumi schedule was so far behind today, I was treated to Sandanme bouts when I woke up at my regular time for watching the start of Juryo. And then I witnessed the Makushita bout between Tochinobori and Asabenkei. Asabenkei has been around forever (i.e., March 2007), and despite his size and determination, he has struggled to get a strong foothold in the sekitori ranks. Knee injuries are his Achilles heel. Today he was fighting for his kachikoshi with a 3-3 record. His bout involved a torinaoshi, which proved costly for him: (1) he ended up losing the bout, (2) he was handed a makekoshi demotion, and (3) he was left incapacitated with a left knee injury, which could well set him back yet again. You'd think that a wrestler with his history would make a habit of wearing knee supporters, but no. I guess he likes to live dangerously. And when you live dangerously, you often end up paying the price. Sigh. I've been a passive follower of Asabenkei, so it hurt me to see him hurt yet again. But the main reason I decided to post this report is that after the broadcast was over, I went to the Baur Foundation to view their special exhibit on Japanese Prints 1860-1890. Included were a couple of prints featuring Musashibo Benkei (Benkei to his friends ) and I was reminded about the history behind Asabenkei's shikona.
