    "Did his hand touch down?" Yes, Kyokkushoho at 2:30.

    What a great story! But who is Takanosho's tsukebito?

    2019 Kyushu Basho Discussion (spoiler alert)

    I'm starting to see the "dohyo degradation" on days 5 and 6; a lot of what Kintamayama calls "slippiotoshi". And it looks like Terutsuyoshi slipped on his own salt yesterday.

    2019 Kyushu Basho Discussion (spoiler alert)

    Every minor league baseball team in America has those "sumo fat suits" for the between-innings fan shows; maybe NSK could pick some up cheap. https://www.texassumo.com/rental_post/texas-sumo-wrestling/ Or get those giant heads for concussion protection. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mascot_race Just some more free advice from the Sumo Forum community.

    Do I see the shade of Kisenosato in that face?

    Rikishi Status Kyushu 2019

    I can only think of NFL players in a similar situation: splinted while on the ground, then sent off on special carts. Medical services in the stadium. If necessary, Medivac to hospital.

    Rikishi Status Kyushu 2019

    Thanks for that. "Bg in one year" seemed a little off to me.

    Women in sumo? Around the world and in Japan

    Perhaps women should be fully integrated into Ozumo: no weight classes (demeaning!), integrated heya, etc. Don't "@" me, haters.

    This is, of course, impossible, because "no one ever gets injured falling off the dohyo" (TM, NSK).

    As we used to say in America, Goeido is the "bargain basement" Kakuryu.

    Ridiculous Predictions for Kyushu 2019

    It's getting harder to make predictions that are actually ridiculous, isn't it? After the carnage of the last two basho, I wonder if we'll see the first simultaneous makuuchi/juryo champ who clinches the title(s) against a guy brought up from Ms3!

    A nice touch; well played, sir.

    Ridiculous Predictions for Kyushu 2019

    1) Hokutofuji is injured on day 2, but his mighty forehead continues on, getting twelve wins and starting the first Ozeki run by a body part. 2) The verdict from the richijo comes down: Abi and Wakamotoharu are sentenced to shokkiri duty for the next jungyo. 3) Enho has a middling 7-8 tournament, but is still awarded #1 'spirited rikishi' all fifteen days, and is voted "cutest human ever" by the Kawaii Advisory Board. 4) At the post-basho wrapup report, no one can remember if Takarafuji entered the basho, or what his result was.

    Pre-Kyushu predictions?

    Sir, at least have the courtesy of waiting until we post the "Ridiculous predictions for Kyushu basho" thread! (Harumph!)

    Kakuryu over Asanoyama.

    What a shame. He drops down to the unsalaried oyakata ranks now, doesn't he? (Asking for a rikishi)

    How far will Terunofuji go?

    Juryo in Haru. 'Cause I say so.

    When will be the next basho to see 3 Yokozuna on day 15?

    1/2024; only because of the lack of a dominant Yokozuna in the near future. Constant injuries to top rikishi will leave breathing room for Y2 and Y3 to win consecutive yusho.

    I agree with my good friend Benihana that there should definitely be a sarcasm emoji in the reaction menu.
