    Araiso activities

    Araiso oyakata looks absolutely dashing in a suit and tie. Like the Japanese James Bond or something

    Hakkaku. The man has some gravitas.

    Disappointed with the musubi no ichiban result, but great basho. Miraculous to get this one in the books.

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Can somebody tell us the last time we had two Yokozuna going head to head for the yusho on day 15? Seems like years...

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Midorifuji again, down in Juryo, going like a house on fire. Really enjoying his “small man” version of sumo: fearlessly and aggressively going head to head and not ducking his opponents with henka and other tricks. Yoritaoshi victory today evoked images of Superman

    And now, ladies and gentlemen, we have ourselves a basho! Great win for Shodai. Huge props!

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    I have really been enjoying the fights in Juryo this tournament. Tobizaru and Midorifuji today was one of the best bouts so far in this basho, and there have been many good ones. I think we’re seeing some high caliber Sumo this March in the empty gymnasium. Shipman getting taken out like crazy, too.

    Happy Shodai won, but it looked like he got lucky. Didn’t look like he really wanted to win until he did. Onosho has looked great in quite a few bouts this tournament, today being the culmination of his improvements. Doing some very exciting sumo. The leg pick by Terutsuyoshi against Kotonowaka was very well done. I’m sure the youngster learned something today.

    I agree. Whereas, if he starts out badly, he goes kyujo by day 5. Rank has its privileges.

    Basho cancellation?

    This is a highly imprudent contagion management strategy, especially when infected persons can be asymptomatic but still pass the virus to others. The sumo we are enjoying watching during this pandemic is only possible due to this heads in the sand approach. Hope all rikish, oyakata, venue staff and everyone else will be ok

    Basho cancellation?

    Seeing chatter on social media. Due to fever and positive test result for corona virus. Hesitant to propagate fake news. Can anyone confirm?

    He did very well today against a tough opponent. Kotoshoho is really impressive this tournament.

    But I thought his heart isn't in it? That was an awesome battle: skycrane vs skycrane

    He rarely listens to me anyway. I'm still a huge fan.
