  1. Nagoya Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Takakesho, Endo gonna be a good match. Kagayaki gets his shot at Abi.. My boy should win. Kaise , Mitakiumi I'm getting up early for that one. Toyonoshima going for KK as well, I do agree his top division days are done, but still routing for him. Aminishiki, Gagamaru ...? Looks like a pull win for Aminishiki . Tochinozan , Chiyotairu ...both fighting well . Plenty of sumo left !
  2. Nagoya Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    We'll...proud of my boy Kagayaki...good fights against both ozeki but hoping he'd get that kensho today. Reportably one of the hardest trainers in sumo today...so he's gonna be fine. Also seems to avoid injury. Maybe he upsets Mitakiumi tomorrow ? It's a good race to the finish... My invisible money on Takayasu !
  3. Nagoya Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    One thing I've learned being a sumo fan for only about 2yrs... Banzuke is best predictor . If Takayasu is healthy it's his basho. I love the ups and downs...this is what it is really about... Nice win for Aminishiki in Juryo Toyonoshima ms-7 fighting tonight at 2-1. It's always about the younger guys coming up and the veterans fighting on... This is what I love about sumo. The Banzuke never lies ! My boy Kagayaki on the last bout against Takayasu ? I'd love to see him win but ?? Bring it on !!

    Ouch... A loss on day 5 now 1-2
  5. Nagoya Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Abi proving me wrong...keeping all off his belt.. Aminishiki quietly at 4-1 .... Liking ishura's sumo....he can hit and move. Looks like Tochinoshin and Mitakiumi but don't count the Yokozuna out yet !
  6. Nagoya Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Chionukuni Takayasu was the match of the year IMHO, but can't help to think that split tweaked his knee and/or ankle I hope not. Ichinojo and Yoshikaze have nothing... Too bad. Ichinojo looks light as a feather and no forward movement for yoshikaze. Kakayruu and the Hak taking care of business... No surprises
  7. Wakaichiro from Texas

    Day 3 ... He is 1-0 going into this match
  8. Nagoya Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Routing for shohozan to KK, back at komosubi at 34. Kotoshugiku still looking better then he has since losing his ozeki rank. Kagayaki did not look heavy against Takakeisho but nice job by the youngster. His buddy Onosho having no trouble. My new boy Diaimami now 2-0. Brilliant win by Enho... Hoping Ishura is watching. Chiyomaru is the only rikishi that can stay low by standing straight up... Not gonna work with the giant Aioyama. Hakahou looking like the boss, but it's still early. Some wonderful sumo today :)
  9. Nagoya Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Nice win for Kagayaki..even a lil belt work. Kaise slides Takakesho clear across the ring. Abi's attack still looking 1 dimensional and looks like he winds up standing up too tall to be effective. Ichinojo had nothing, I hope that was a fluke but looked like bad back. Diaimami, Aminishiki, Gagamaru, and Kotoyuki all winners in Juryo. Sumo is back !
  10. Predictions.... Real, imagined or outrageous. Kagayaki will go 8-7. Steady improvement and only 24. First kimboshi against Kakaryuu. Kotoshugiku will defeat Takayasu on day 1. Takayasu always a slow starter and ring rust. Onosho will tear up the lower end and get 10 wins... His buddy Takakeisho goes 8-7 at M3 Chiyomaru beats Yutakayama day 1 Kakaryuu wins the yusho at 13-2 beats Hakahou last day. No Women will enter the Dohyo
  11. Makuuchi starts about 4am for me.. And almost light out in east coast so I plan to watch plenty live... I normally get up 5am... Then scourer YouTube for lower division and for the usually later recaps especially from our own Kita ... And NHK highlights
  12. Banzuke for Nagoya 2018

    Does seem kinda generous near the top with Kotoshugiku from M4 to M1. even my boy Kagayaki up to M4 from M8. But these things have a way of working it all out. Getting ready for sumo !
  13. Training camp news and pics

    Looks like Toyonoshima and his wife... but what do I know
