  1. Nagoya Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Sumo matches are quick....certainly effects the training...it.s not 12 rounds of boxing. Fast, big strong and fighting spirit. So for someone who has not paid a single yen..a very enjoyable basho.... Congrats to Mitakiumi and watching the rise of the Yama boys. Takakeisho is like the nasty lil stray cat that eats our cats food..pint sized and all attitude. hokotofuji, Onosho and my boy Kagayaki gonna be working their way up the Banzuke.... Cheering for the veterans ...Ikioi and Tamawashi looking good. Surprised Ichinojo maintained his rank. Enho back and . Toyonoshima flirting with Juryo promotion, oh.........rah.......had a KK as well as our great American hope Wachichiro .... The gods can sleep now till Sept.
  2. Nagoya Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Great sumo from Mita he deserves this. Look out for the young Yama boys.... They are young, they are big and look hungry.
  3. Wakaichiro from Texas

    And it's a win! Congrats on the KK 4-3.. Can't seem to find any video.
  4. Nagoya Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Should have been a redo..NHK trying to sell their live English coverage day 14 and 15 ! Makes for good drama and Goedo not gonna lay done for him either !
  5. 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 !
  6. 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 !
  7. 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 !!
  8. Wakaichiro from Texas

    Ouch... A loss on day 5 now 1-2
  9. 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 !
  10. 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
  11. Wakaichiro from Texas

    Day 3 ... He is 1-0 going into this match
  12. 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 :)
  13. 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 !
  14. 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
  15. 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
