    YDC convenes after Kyushu 2021

    Inevitable Mission Creep. It's especially inevitable when there's little to do in the Yokozuna Deciding department. Next step: position paper on Ozeki-Themed Bento.

    Outstanding oyakata danpatsu-shiki

    It must be depressing for these fabled rikishi to have to wait and wait for their well-earned honors. To paraphrase C. S. Lewis, "Always Intai, Never Danpatsu-shiki." I hope they finally get closure on their active careers.

    Have a go at a Haiku!

    Now is the winter of our discontent, six weeks with no Ozumo.

    Chris the conspiracy theorist will be watching Shimanoumi for tell-tale signs -- a new wristwatch, buying the guys dinner, etc.

    The Wall 2021

    Hagiwara was missing in the Naruto end-of-basho photo; I guess he was sent home to heal.

    Retired after Kyushu 2021

    I don't know if it's a thing, but some rikishi seem to pack it in while they still have a positive W-L differential. Higonojo ends at 307-295-4, and couldn't take another year of 2-5 basho.

    Promotion & Demotion & Yusho Kyushu 2021

    Trivia Bit: The fifth use of this phrase by @Asashosakari in a post on the SF. No one else even registers (well, until now). My question: is it possible to have choices that are cromulent but not perfectly cromulent?

    And, under his given name, we have Ono vs Fuse. A difference of 22 romaji letters.

    How did Farquaad-sama get on the Banzuke Committee?

    Or, as I imagine it, Emperor Palpatine vs. Luke Skywalker.

    Pokemon collabs with Sumo

    I had forgotten ... the "hand flick" gesture he used to get a couple of fingers down before the tachi-ai.

    I won't pretend to understand the subtle meanings associated with these prizes, but if Abi didn't display Fighting Spirit this basho, maybe they should call it something else.

    To analyze this work of art would be like trying to tattoo a butterfly.

    Nothing to see here, guys, just a Latitudinarian falling for the midwit math foisted on him by the NSK stooges, when the real string-pullers are the Ag Industry barons who control Sumo through the koenkai system and through their gifts of food and rice to the heya; dang it, all that salt throwing should tip off anybody with half a brain. As for the Rise of the Mongolians, just watch those hicks scarf down rice and you can see a whole phalanx of ambassadors for Japanese products into Central Asia. And a certain controversial Youtuber is compensated well for throwing people off the scent with simple 1D Chess conspiracy theories. I could say so much more, but I have relatives in the fish-processing industry who wouldn't last long if I did. /s [Oh, yeah, also "Go Mitakeumi!]
