    Have a go at a Haiku!

    Wrestling ceramics, and possibly rabid fox ... Come, Aki basho!

    Any thoughts about this kimarite?

    Maybe we should ask this guy https://www.lladro.com/en_us/sumo-fighter-figurine-en-us-01009080.html

    How will this era end?

    The era will end with a banglike whimper, followed by a whimperish bang.

    Bilingual/Trilingual Rikishi?

    I've got to imagine that all of the Hawaiian rikishi know Hawaiian, English and Japanese [KONISHIKI has a lot of Hawaiian Pidgin in his speech].

    Bilingual/Trilingual Rikishi?

    Based upon videos and other accounts, Osunaarashi speaks Japanese, Arabic and English.

    Would you throw the Zabuton???

    Would the forum oyakata reach back into their memories, and list those bouts deemed most worthy of a zabuton toss?

    Sumo in video games

    So that's what a Yokaizuno looks like ... impressive!

    Next Yokozuna??????

    Takayasu has great stamina for a big man, and he's often energetic. Did he pick up bad habits from Kisenosato, who took a long time to get to Yokozuna? Tochinoshin's first injury should have killed his career; the fact that he's where he is seems miraculous. I don't think he has enough time left.

    Next Yokozuna??????

    Is it too early to use the phrase "bargain-counter Kaio"?

    Next Yokozuna??????

    If the problem is the suppression of candidates by the current Yokozuna (especially Hakuho), then watch for guys gaining Jun-Yusho. When Hak & Kak are gone, the lid will come off and those guys will be getting the Yusho.

    Shohozan's thinking: "I've got him now. He'd have to throw me over his frikkin' shoulder to get me down, but he won't because 1) he's got an injured shoulder, and 2) it's only jungyo, so he won't risk it for one lousy envelope." On the other hand, Enho is playing 4-dimensional Sumo Chess.
