  1. Hakuho Injury

    I think the official doctor's report was: “Damage to right-side patellar tendon, suspicion of avulsion fracture of the right tibial tuberosity. Requires two weeks of rest” No idea on how accurate "two weeks of rest" is.
  2. Nagoya Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Those 9-6 records make things tricky. I think it Baruto who famously was passed for an ozeki promotion due to a 9-6 right in the middle of it. A Yusho is very impressive, but with so many of the high ranks kyujo, there's going to be an asterisk in everyone's mind. If Mitakeumi brings another stellar performance in Aki, he's got it, but if he only gets the 33 wins with no wins against the ozeki+ ranks... it'd be a tough call imo.

  5. Rikishi Status Nagoya 2018 - FINAL

    From this article, it looks like he's still hopeful to return.
  6. Makuuchi starts around 2am my time, so the plan is to load up on irish coffee and power through.
  7. Preparations of the Y/O- July 2018

    aaah, my mistake. Carry on!
  8. Preparations of the Y/O- July 2018

    I'm pretty sure Kisenosato still gets paid, right? Bumping someone up to makuuchi would mean bumping someone up from Makushita to fill Juryo --- so paying an extra sekitori's salary. An extra cost for not much gain, imo
  9. Ikioi marries pro golfer Mamiko Higa

    what kind of money is she making? My google-fu is coming up short in finding details.

  11. Basho Talk Natsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Fair enough, I guess those weren't the best examples. I would say staying crouched only covers the really obvious early-tachiais. For the ones that are really close (and still gives one side an advantage), it's a lot tougher to (not) react in time, because you just realize it mid-charge. This all said, I don't think Giku was robbed. Just making a comment that Rikishi sometimes have no choice but to rely on the Gyoji noticing.
  12. Basho Talk Natsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    I remember Harumafuji and Hakuho losing matches by trying to not accept a tachiai. Their best bet is to go for it and hope for a matta.

    None here either --- I actually really enjoyed the short video-introduction you did at the beginning.
