    Is it too early to get on the "Break up Kise stable" bandwagon?

    This is the ultimate irony of the basho: Kaisei, Mr. "I march my opponent to the bales and get thrown", beats the guy who threw everybody else at the bales. Sumo is the greatest!

    He has gotten the benefit of the doubt before when he didn't have both hands down. Now he gets clocked after having only one hand down. Maybe someone is sending a message?

    Yep, after a horrible 3-12 at M16 in Jan. 2013 he fell to J9, where he repeated with a 3-12 and went intai. A previous injury (?) may have been responsible for his 0-0-15 in Nagoya 2010, which sent him from M9 to J2 for one basho. [Wait a minute. 10 total sekitori rikishi had 0-0-15 in Nagoya 2010. Was this related to match fixing?]

    Aaaaand, Enho blows his chance for a date with Aiko.

    Both these guys have been living on the bales. So of course: "No, Shodai, you fool, don't try to push him out! ... Auggh, haven't you learned anything this basho?"

    I like that one. [Also, better than my original idea, "Mongolian Rhapsody"]

    That is the question.

    Can you ID this Yokozona?

    1) Can you identify this Yokozuna? 2) I am the Yokozuna 3) The Yokozuna is Tanikaze Kajinosuke ergo, 4) You are Tanikaze Kajinosuke. This must be the most profound thread I've ever encountered on this Forum.

    It was a surprisingly good article (condescension button turned way down for a change). Also posted on the regular topic thread: Articles by Forum ...

    What a freakin' weird day! Sadanoumi "Kotoshogiku"s Kotoshogiku, Mitakeumi "Endo"s Endo, and Tochinoshin "Asanoyama"s Asanoyama. Also a little sad: getting to the end of the highlight reel and saying to myself, "Hey, there's one bout left. Who hasn't wrestled yet? Oh, it's Goeido and somebody. Yeah ... " Such a let-down feeling without a Yokozuna or a compelling match at the end.

    But Tamawashi wasn't a Yokozuna or Ozeki. And he wasn't up for Ozeki after a 5-10 at Sekiwake.
