    2021 "Kozumo" Hatsu Basho discussion thread

    To be honest, I thought so, as well, but apparently the two shinpan were dozing.

    Midorifuji - zensho yusho? Stranger things have already happened in 2021... The yokozuna run begins!

    Corona and sumo

    I won't be surprised if they cancel spectators, as they did back in March. Seems like a reasonable approach since all the personnel and rikishi are being tested this week, right?

    Corona and sumo

    Exactly the bit of info I came to the forum to find. Since I can't find a word of that in any of the English reports I've seen on Hakuho. Many thanks, Kinta. Please post updates, all of you folks who can actually read and speak Japanese. Get well Hakuho!!!

    What a totally awesome thread. Thanks to everyone participating, particularly Cal, Joann and Houmanumi. I've run out of Thanks and Likes, but had to say thank you somewhere! Awesome stuff. If I'd done more professional creative writing, I'd offer to help Cal out. I will certainly read it if it ever makes it to press.

    Hokuseiho - Shot at a record?

    Yes, I suspect you are correct, but since I got to see him in asakeiko before he went maezumo, I'm pulling for the kid...

    The Giant Macaron

    Do we know whether the macaron tradition will continue in 2021? Not a terribly important point, and nobody may know, but I confess I'm finishing up the writing of a story I've written about my experiences with sumo. I'll post a link to the book, when I finally get it published, on the Articles by Forum members thread.

    The Giant Macaron

    OK,sumojoann, Rabid John and Benihana are all of one mind, I think I must agree. I was quite entertained by all of your replies, BTW.

    Ooh, that's giving me the shudders.

    The Giant Macaron

    A macaron shaped pillow would be pretty humorous to sit on one's zabutan for a little sweet meditation, but a photo of a macaron on a pillow just won't do...

    The Giant Macaron

    That would be hilarious. If so, I want one!

    The Giant Macaron

    Hey, does anyone know if the Pierre Herme giant macaron is still being presented in 2021? Also, does anyone know if it's a real or a plastic macaron? The author of this foodbeast article suggests that it's real, but I'm somewhat dubious. LOL, if for no reason than the lack of proper Japanese packaging... https://www.foodbeast.com/news/first-place-prize-for-sumo-wrestlers-is-a-humongous-macaron/

    Hey, anyone know if the kid's got his chonmage yet?

    I think one of them scored a hatakikomi a few bashos back, but perhaps I'm mistaken...
