  1. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Tochinoshin for the win. Kakuryu and Goeido will just have to settle for second and third.
  2. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    I never thought of that but you must be right, I do recall something about "anything touching other than the sole of the foot".
  3. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    I see a gap between the heel and the ground on this shot. However, when I paused the slow motion replay , it looked to me like the heel did touch the ground.
  4. Hakuhou injured.

    It doesn't seem possible to fight with two injured big toes, especially if you're a yokozuna and have to fight against the top guys. I expect him to withdraw. However, it is Hakuho , so you never know.
  5. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    I'm thinking maybe Kise is over the hump with his win today, getting some of his Yokozuna confidence back. I hope so anyway.
  6. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    I think there are a lot of people who would like to see Hakuho falter, to see him give up something of his dominant position. The bar is set so high that simply not winning this basho would provide hope to those people. I am not one of them, I want him to win this basho and prove, yet again, that he is still The Man. If he can do it without the slapping and arm bars, so much the better. As to his being chubby, he is listed at 156 kilos, isn't that his normal weight?
  7. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Yes, it's crazy to have a move legal, but then shame a yokozuna into not using it. If you don't like it, make it illegal for everyone.
  8. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    You really have to love Hakuhos style, so casual. If he is able to win the basho without his usual tachiai he will again be The Man.
  9. Kakuryu Intai Speculation

    He seems to be healthier now, I predict he will come in second to Hakuho.
