    Kyushu Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Just me, or was Mitakeumi robbed today? The top of Myogiryu's big toe was touching clay before Mitakeumi stepped out. Any part of the body other than the soles of the feet after all. Hard to spot I guess.

    Would be Sugar Daddy anyway, Ikioi is the older one... and she makes more money, so neither works!!

    What other sports do you watch?

    Caught Pro-Kabaddi on sky not that long ago, also Kabaddi world cup, surprisingly India won, interesting to see the other nations teams. I'm a fan of watching darts, cricket, ice hockey, netball, Rugby Union 6 nations and world cup, and soccer (Celtic and Wales games only really though). oh and tennis I guess, but only really the big 4. Ryder cup is also good... Still a Dolphins fan, but haven't watched an NFL game in full in years. Love playing badminton but think it is awful to watch for some reason.

    Should-have-been Y/O

    So what happened in the May 2001 Basho with Kaiō? A very unlucky injury or was he just not up to scratch? Being sandwiched between 2 Yusho it looks like this was his high point in some ways and if he had won the May 2001 Basho (or J/D) he looks to have had decent numbers until 2006 or so, so 5 years as a Yokuzuna with 5/6 Yusho, comparable to many Yokozuna records I think? (Median Yusho wins for a Yokozuna being 5 afterall) Speculative obviously, since we don't know if he would have put up the same numbers if he had been promoted, but I think that would have been considered a respectable Yokozuna career. Or maybe he is better off being rememberered as one of the greatest Ozeki, who knows...

    I take it by that answer that you are flying said aircraft? Nice. It has a nice bakery as well if memory serves!

    I don't live that far from Braemar, so I have indeed witnessed the competitive tossing of cabers! (It's pretty cool actually, especially when accompanied by a few beers )

    Certainly something I would be up for if people showed an interest. I'm booked up solid until September this year, but worth looking in to.
