    Rikishi health check pics overview 2020

    Why are their arms flexed when getting the shot? Never noticed their arm position till now. Their arms should be relaxed to prevent any painful stabby feeling, especially a flu shot. Maybe the faces some of them make when getting shots aren't just for show after all.

    Oh wow. I had no idea that he is half-Filipino as well. I wonder if there are any more aside from Kotokuzan and Masunoyama.

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

    This reminds me of how he used to be the punching bag of the OBC/joi during jungyo. But now with the dissolution of the OBC and with most of the longtime joi/makuuchi members retired or fading fast, he's finally stepping up and fulfilling Moti's prophecy. No more food truck camping for this future ozeki.

    It's a shame that he has no many health issues. It would've been awesome to see three half-Filipinos in makuuchi at the same time.

    Another Sekitori Marriage

    So okamisan ran off last September, just when Takayasu sat out with an injury and started his MK streak. Aside from his nagging injury, I wonder if that played any part in his downward spiral.

    I seriously doubt he's suffering from bad ass-ne or sitting down on glass-shard cushions. This might signal the return of pink Tochinoshin, the Georgian Majin Buu.

    Nagoya 2019 Discussion (here be spoilers)

    There might be some harm done here. He has essentially fought 5 matches while most everyone else has only fought 3. Plus his bouts tend to last longer than the others. Hopefully there are no more torinaoshi for him this basho.

    Hatsu Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Reminds me of Sadanoumi. Out of his 25 Makuuchi appearances, he has gone 7-8 or 8-7 15 times.

    Kyushu Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Sheesh. So much Kise bashing around here. To think that he was the toast of the town around here last year. And now people are kicking down the man who carried the weight of his people over his broken body. Tsk tsk. I, for one, would like to give him props for at least gambarizing his way through it all. I can't even imagine the pressure, frustration, and disappointment the man must be experiencing right now. The man tried...at least give him that.

    Aki Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    I was surprised to see some posters here ragging on Takayasu after his bout with Hak. Yes, he clearly fell for the tachiai mind tricks of the GOAT, but I think it was far from being pathetic and the worst bout of the day. In fact, it was more complimentary to Takayasu that Hak decided to go all Aminishiki on him. How many times have we seen Hak resort to that? He was wary of having a straight-on confrontation with the bear, bad back and all. Sure, Yasu could've handled it better, but that's after the fact. I'm not sure any of the other sekitori could've done better in that situation. As for Mita, well...nothing new here. Same old losing streak during the second half of a basho. Better luck with the next ozeki run, young blood.

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Natsu 2018

    Even with the disclaimer, the imagery of that made me upchuck my dinner. Akiseyama streaking would give new meaning to "how low can you go?".

    Tochinoshin begs to differ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FL8kYcsiWHI Besides, that's what happens when you only grab the first layer of the mawashi.

    Basho Talk Natsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Old, crusty, battered, and not mentally there goat going up against a resurgent forklift that has momentum and wheels/shocks that are not as rickety as before. It was the right time for Tochi to finally win one against Hak. The stars were aligned for it to be so.

    Takanohana is the one behind this. I guarantee it.
