    True. A Yusho at M8 in May 2019 and hardly heard from again.
  2. From the article: "One they are sure to rehash in the locker room this season is the trip to a sumo stable in Tokyo to learn more about the national sport." However, from the photo at the head of the article, the American Football player is facing off at the Yokozuna Tonkatsu Dosukoi Tanaka restaurant in Tokyo (home of ex-Jokoryu and others).

    I was noticing that a couple of basho ago. It must have been an injury. While he was in "The Hell of 8-7 7-8" his main tactic was almost exclusively hatakikomi-type techniques. Understandable, maybe, for a guy with a defensive style; however, his 11-4 Juryo Yusho had only one hatakikomi (against Enho), 6 -dashi moves, 3 yorikiri and 1 uwatenage. 5 of 21 wins by hatakikomi over the previous two basho. [Note: he sure wins a lot by okuridashi]

    Hiradoumi's shift-henka was pretty good, but I'm surprised to say that it wasn't as good as the one by ... Kotoshoho??

    Sorry, he's won a Yusho.

    Takayasu took over the clutching-defeat-from-the-jaws-of-victory mantle from heya mate Kisenosato. If no rikishi from Tagonoura can rush up the banzuke and choke, someone from Nishonoseki will have to hurry up and fail so Takayasu can pass on the mantle and retire.

    Am I the only one who thinks the first photo is funnier than the second photo?

    A real shame about Chiyoshoma. His previous two basho have been his best (score-wise and sumo-wise) in ... forever. Last basho's 12 wins is tops for his career.

    The author knows what he's talking about. A very good summary article.

    Have a go at a Haiku!

    Onosato should Go for Y, not O; that way there's no kadoban.

    American Diner Says Chanko Left Him Hungry

    NOTE: The Onion is an American satire site (though not as funny as it used to be).

    Strangely, "semi" and "quarter are from Latin, but "{half" goes all the way back to proto-Germanic. So, if you want to stick with Latin for the powers-of-2 divisions, it's semi, quarter, octo.
