    OK, enough for this thread. Too many memories.

    Steroids, HGH and other performance enhancing drugs?

    I'm so embarrassed that I don't know what this stands for ... but don't tell me!

    Harumafuji intai pics overview

    Japan is ... Japan! Tons of chin-pulling about "sullying the dignity of yokozuna" mixed in with " ... I think the most thoughtful insights probably came from Demon Kakka."

    Favorite Harumafuji matches

    I agree 100%. A rare chance time for him to say "technique-shmechnique, how's about a nice body slam!"

    New Juryo for Hatsu 2018

    Next poll question: "MORE or LESS stupid?" I vote less, because at least it can be explained. Next (easier) question: what will be on his keisho mawashi?

    The awards ceremony ... the plaque from Corona ... the beer bottle ... awkward ...

    Aminishiki in 2018

    He may want to get more bouts/basho under his belt to climb the top 10, but I think he'd want to retire before dropping to juryo; so let's say intai after the March 2018 basho while staring at Juryo for the next basho. M15.

    Day 15 pics overview Kyushu 2017

    I'm assuming the photo shows family reacting to Aminishiki's win. Those kids must be thinking "I've got the coolest Dad in the world!"

    Top 10 Sumo Records Kyushu 2017 Edition

    If I read the DB correctly, all of these rikishi made it to sanyaku: 1 Kom, 7 Sek, 2 Yok (including Asashio, who changed his name to Minanogawa)

    They are, I believe, second cousins?

    Day 13 pics Kyushu Basho 2017

    Look at those hands after a 70 basho career! If you didn't know he was a rikishi, you'd swear he was getting ready to put on his boxing gloves.

    Day 12 pics Kyushu Basho 2017

    Hakuhou parts the curtain, goes into the little room for awhile; comes out looking relieved, and crushes his opponent. He must have gone to confession!

    Ichinojo - Goeidou: as they say in basketball, you can't teach height.
  20. Never miiiind, I reset my browser and it got smart again.
  21. He was finally in cruise control in this basho, thinking about maybe taking a final shot at the consecutive match record, when a (to him) blown matta resets the count, maybe putting his goal forever out of reach. I wonder if that was going through his head on the side of the dohyo.

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Kyushu 2017

    Thanks so much! Good talent here. What happened to Torakio's face/chin? He's got a mask of tape since about day 3. Naruto twitter page doesn't explain (I think). His last bout was impressive: wary of getting tripped up at the edge, he just picks the kid up and shot puts him about four feet out of the dohyo.

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Kyushu 2017

    Interesting, but maybe just coincidental; some of these guys look like they reached their (natural?) level at low Juryo then declined. Jokoryu shot up to K1e in 20 basho, then apparently got injured. They average 30 years old, so none of them is on the way up. On the other hand, I see so many rikishi in the database who max out in Jonidan or Sandanme after 10 years, maybe this is a group of haves, not have-nots.

    I liked the hair-pull match; the announcers were getting all inside-baseball about who landed first on the throw, then when the mono-ii was over they replayed and noticed the big yank on the mage: "Ohhhhh!"
  25. FYI, I'm getting nothing but 404 errors when I try to access the database.
