    Day 14 pics overview Kyushu 2019

    I hope this qualifies as a 'Day 14' pic. My new son got his new shirt today - just in time to finish off the basho!

    Sumo Kitty (children's book)

    New book just came out. My daughter found it at the library. It's quite entertaining, and pretty accurate, although I'm not sure if the author truly understands what a tachiai is. Anyway, here are a few pics. If you have kids or grandkids, I highly recommend it. You can request it at your local library. Librarians are always looking for books to buy that the public wants.

    2019 Aki Basho Discussion (spoiler alert!)

    Just plain old crappy judging today. Surely one of the 6 judges there could have called that obvious matta. And surely that Enho bout could have at least been a redo. Crappy judging all around.

    2019 Aki Basho Discussion (spoiler alert!)

    You heard it here first! Too bad, though. I hoped he would have stuck it out.

    2019 Aki Basho Discussion (spoiler alert!)

    3 losses in a row by Kakuryu. I wonder if he's going to drop out?

    2019 Aki Basho Discussion (spoiler alert!)

    Well, not usually, but he did pull a henka at the Natsu basho - I believe it was the day after that highly questionable call about whether his heel was out.

    How about Kintatarumi? (according to Google translator - "Sagging testicles").

    Videos Aki 2019 ~ Days 1-15

    Nooo! What a tragedy! You're the best. Thank you so much for all you've done. It was your videos that brought me into sumo several years ago, and I watched all of the bashos I had missed previously.

    Aki 2019

    Wow - I voted for the 3 least popular choices on #2. Well, this will be interesting! Good luck to all of them.

    Rikishi Status Aki 2019 - Day 8 Late

    Yay - Chiyonokuni's back! Best wishes to him. May he ascend the ranks quickly.

    I'm suspicious....

    In the last 4 bashos, Kintamayama has only gotten one Kachi-koshi in the ISP game, and that was only 8-7. Suddenly he's in Tokyo, and in first place! I think he's getting inside information...... Still, he must be having a blast. Live sumo in Japan and first place in the ISP! (The only thing that would make it perfect was if Ikioi was doing better....) Have a great time, Kinta-san. We miss your vids.

    Trump coming to the basho

    That would be pretty cool if we happen to catch a view his distinguished mug in the crowd. Only there are no videos to watch....

    Hakuho Injures Arm Haru Basho 2019

    Oh, probably. I think his diving into the fans was also played up a bit. He could have stopped in time. It seems to me he's quite the showman, but then, that's what we all want. Question about the French macaroon - is that thing actually edible?

    Thanks for posting these! Love it!

    Kisenosato intai

    Yes, good point. I was thinking along the lines of various records and fame on paper.

    Kisenosato intai

    What a pity. I fear he will quickly fade into obscurity now. He was dealt a rum hand, but that's life sometimes.

    Sumo goods

    My brother is currently in Japan with the US Navy. He's coming back to the states this summer. I'd like him to bring me something sumo-related, but I don't know what I ought to ask for. Any suggestions?

    Chiyo brothers

    Forgive my ignorance, but is it prohibited for them to fight each other? is it because of their relationship, or because one is the assistant to the other, or have they just not yet had the luck to meet in the ring yet? And along those lines, are there prohibitions for certain rishiki against wrestling other rishiki? And one final question - in English should I call it a 'fight' or a 'wrestle' or a 'bout' or what?? Sorry for all the newbie questions.

    Osunaarashi scandal

    That was awesome! Funny! Maybe he can link up with Byamba and maybe come to the U S and promote sumo. It's easier to get a driver's license here.

    Wowza!! What a basho!! Our favorite little sweetie had a rough time at the first hit.

    Day 14 pics Hatsu 2018 Part 2 (Tochinoshin post bout)

    Way to go, Tochi! Awesome basho all around! Thanks for the great pics, but we need a good one of him with the trophy. Here's all I could find:

    Video Streaming - Hatsu 18

    Got it. Sorry about that. I had a suspicion that might be an issue. Hopefully I didn't cause any harm. Sorry I didn't see the message earlier. Just a stupid newbie......

    Video Streaming - Hatsu 18

    Looks like the livestream isn't quite live, for my iphone sumo app shows the winners about 3 minutes before the livestream.
