    First time on the forum in ages... (it's a long and uninteresting story), and I knew I'd see something useful. I'm messaging you, Benihana-san.

    Sekitori Sweepstake - May 2024

    As Joann suggests, I'm in. ALthough I have no idea when the deadline is. :) I'm tempted to go back and look to see who got Onosato Takerufuji. Good draws, those two.

    Sekitori Sweepstake - March 2024

    THanks Joann and Jejima. THis is the first time I've logged onto SF in weeks! I don't see myself on the list, but it's probably because makushita aren't shown. :)

    Ho sure, Joann enjoys seeing me plummet through the rankings, I suspect. Count me in.

    Hey Visits and COVID Restrictions

    Sumo Joann pointed out the typo in the title of this thread, but I don't think it's worth correcting. :) I think it's a long shot, but I would like to watch asageiko again. Once was awesome, though, so if it doesn't work out, I know how fortunate I've already been.
  8. Does anyone know if there are still restrictions on interacting with rikishi during a basho, or visiting a heya to watch asageiko before the basho? If these rules are still in place, as I suspect, does anyone know what the cutoff day is before the basho begins for making a visit? THanks in advance for any info!

    Count me in. I'm getting a new mawashi color this basho.

    Well, several folks commented on how profound the Hoshoryu-Hakuoho match was for them, and I won't dispute that it was a great match, extraordinary in its very existence and an epic start in the top division for this young fellow, recently taking such a momentous shikona. But when I watched it the first time, I thought it was over at the niramiai. I would have been amazed if the kid had pulled off a victory in that final match. That said, I was awfully impressed with the route that led him to that final match, beating both of the leaders from Day 12, and posting a remarkable record for a 19 year-old in his first top division honbasho. Once again, some great sumo throughout the basho!

    John Gunning Looks At Upcoming Basho

    There are definitely folks here who will not think that's funny. So, I have so say, nice shot.

    I'm in, if only to amuse Joann.

    Is Enho also intai? He's clearly been wrestling injured, and plummeting in the banzuke the last couple of basho. I haven't been on the forum much this past year, so I'm even less abreast of developments than normal.
  14. THat was pretty much my experience at Myagino beya, as well, when I got to eat chanko-nabe with Hakuho. I didn't kn ow they did not eat breakfast before practice, though. That will work up an appetite! ANd, I'm glad I did not put on a mawashi and go a few rounds. At age 62, that shp had sailed.
  15. OK, that was really cute, and somewhat imformative. ALthough Steffan was Swedish, his gaijin buddies sounded American. Like me, they didn't need to sleep at the heya. It was a fun video for lunch, though, for sure. Thanks for sharing it here!
