    Funny videos and photos of rikishi at play

    When I first saw his picture and then watched videos of him (as oyakata) he reminded me of the comic actor Hiromasa Taguchi (the fat dance student in Shall We Dance). Furiwake seems able to take off the hinkaku-coat and show you his real character now and again.

    When the jungyo stopped in Saracasama-machi.

    Winter jungyo 2018

    Very stylish design-wise, with the symmetric use of chest hair ...

    Sumo program announcements (pics and vids)

    I have sleep apnea; being overweight is a contributing factor. It is an insidious condition: breathing stops every 30-60 seconds all night, waking up exhausted and in a cold sweat, falling asleep during the day for "no reason." I had a minor knee problem that became debilitating because it was not healing while I slept. Now I use a CPAP religiously. Rikishi probably wouldn't last a year with undiagnosed apnea.

    Have a go at a Haiku!

    Well, this will savor the memory, but destroy the respect ... Guess the rikishi: There once was a man from Osaka, Who’s too young to have wrestled with Waka. Since he rose to Ozeki, His O-zumo’s been shaky, But he’s still there so stop with the Talk-a.

    Wajima in memoriam overview

    Is that a mustache-chin whisker combination I see in one of his sumo matches? Didn't know that was allowed.

    Aurora breaks the record and Aki weigh-in

    Well, as they say, "You can't teach height." Even a kid who is hefty, and more than 184 cm (~6 ft), will think about other sports -- even basketball. That probably means the grey line won't go up much in the future.

    Have a go at a Haiku!

    Orandashoho is destined to someday write a 1500-haiku history of this time in Ozumo. My suggestion for a title: "The Dohyo of the Nibelungs."

    Sansho for Aki 2018

    That probably explains this picture from Naruto Oyakata's page; he posts a photo of the committee in action each basho. I guess the fellows on the far side of the table are the media types? https://ameblo.jp/kotooshu-naruto/entry-12406981212.html
  14. After you've checked off "make it to the Holy Land", I guess the rest of the bucket list can get sorta strange.
