    Tomokaze and Yago

    Is this the reason he was been crap since July last year or a recent injury?

    Foreigner with Japanese shusshin

    It's actually "Velez-san". Spanish speakers have this annoying thing (trying to be polite here) of using their first surname as their main surname, while most of the world (not aware of exeptions, but might be there), uses whatever is the last surname as their main surname. A normal full name is made of 3 to 6 names, so one has to guess whatever is the first surname.

    When Is A Rikishi’s Prime?

    Phisical prime in male athelets is normally 26 to 31 years old. The fact that Hakuho is still the top dog in 2020 doesn't mean he is still in his prime. Believe 2010 Hakuho would win 9 out of 10 against 2020 Hakuho. The same with Kyokutenho. He won the yusho at 37, but he was physically superior at age 30

    Consecutive yusho in diffeent divisions

    He is a ms19, so he won't be in juryu in september. Unless something weird like a bunch of guys reteiring happens.

    Sumo goods

    You can buy them on ebay. Currently there is one seller selling them. The small for 12:00$ and the big for 16:00$. There is another one selling the big one for 59.99$. From my experience buying stamps on ebay, you always need to know the real price of the stamps you are buying or might get a rip off. Also, you should check if the Japan Post is selling them and ship wherever you live. I've never checked the japanese one, but some of the european do send worldwide and you pay retail price.

    Corona and sumo

    And they are doing very well, altough I don't think denial is the correct word. What would be the point of cancelling an event that will happen in 2 months and that they are not selling any tickets (i.e. they can cancel 1 day before it starts if they want)? Would that make people more happy or decrease the number of deaths and infected? No. So what is there to complain about not cancelling it today?

    Retirees after Haru 2020

    They get announced right after the basho. Think the main reason is for banzuke making purpose as this is completed on the wednesday after the basho. If someone retires after, they will still appear on the banzuke of the next basho, so technically are not retired yet (although in fact they are). Only if a rikishi is forced to retire by some unexpected reason, you will see another anouncement before the next basho.

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    What's the reason Terunofuji vs Ichinojo match was avoided for the second basho in a row? They are much closer in rank and score than Teru - Chyotoori.

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Hakuho - Aoiyama Kak - Asa Mita - Takanosho Nice matches for tomorrow. They could have been nicer with Aoiy

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Agree. And Asanoyama on Sunday. No point having Asanoyama fighting injured Takakeisho in case they are both still in the race.

    Terunofuji Watch

    Anyone knows the real condition of those knees? Are they still on a recovery phase and will keep improving with time or they are just "hanging by wires" and next big knock is game over?

    Thanks. Wasn't aware of that rule. And yes, i did pick Asa because i didn't believe Taka was going to show up.

    Something went wrong in Chain with the Asanoyama pick. I've picked him, but it says i had Mitakeumi. Still won, but other people not that lucky.
