    Happy birthday Shimpu!

    Thanks! I was pretty busy lately... Wedding, work etc. I didn't follow sumo world and our forum for a while.

    Creatine - doping or not?

    Obviously creatine isn't any form of doping. It's a supplement. All amateur bodybuilder's federations accept this specific (I'm not talking about pros like IFBB because they do tests only against diuretics). I ate few packets myself - it isn't any secret weapon or something... I'm sure all top rikishi use real stuff like our good old polish Omnadren, Metanabol or even Anapolon (Anadrol 50 equivalent). You can't regenerate quickly without steroids. Injuries are part of sumo... Enough said.

    Some pics of day 4 Hatsu Basho

    Awesome. They should put this pic into new sumo calendar or something. (In a state of confusion...)

    Chain Gang Hatsu 2008

    Indeed. Total carnage ! I'm still standing though :-P

    Ichihara - In makuuchi for Hatsu '08 or not ?

    Nah. He is not ready yet. They know about it. J1W

    Ossetian fighter

    For me it's pretty obvious that every single Yokozuna would be knocked out quickly on the K1 or MMA arena. Maybe not in the pathetic Akebono's fashion though. Same goes in the opposite direction. Every MMA champion would be kicked out from the dohyo even faster. Period.

    Kyushu Basho - Pics Day 09

    Thank you. (Whistling...)

    Kyushu Observations

    Yeah. :-( I'm surprised too... Chaingang - I'm already out. It's even bitter for me because firstly I've planned to pick Sakaizawa or Yoshikaze up but my second thought was "Nah... it's a first day I need a certainty." They both won. Tochiozan lost.
