    Rikishi calling a mono-ii

    Someone who hasn't lost has to offer the incoming rikishi the chikara-mizu.

    You don't have to be ill to have poor communications skills. Work in the tech industry for a few months if you don't believe me.

    The biggest name in sumo.

    Promotion Discussion thread - Natsu 2019

    Honestly, they're my very favourite thing.

    Trivia bits

    Asanoyama is now the only rikishi (so far) to win the "We're Totally Shoving This In The Back Of A Closet And Forgetting About It After Next Year" Trophy.

    The obvious fix: schedule Tochinoshin to face the Juryo visitor on Senshuraku. Heck, book him to face Hattorizakura.

    Natsu basho 2019 discussions [SPOILERS]

    The most dangerous opponent in sumo is the guy who has a 7 in his record, and Asanoyama, Kakuryu, and Tochinoshin all face such opponents tomorrow. Of course, for Tochinoshin, 9 is the new 7....

    Pair it with 'T', and maybe.

    He also doesn't look like he's hurting quite as much this time. More drama than he should have needed today, though.

    Tomorrow looks fantastic -- five real quality matchups at the end, among all the other action.

    Ridiculous Predictions for Natsu 2019

    Hattorizakura gets his first yusho.

    First shot at a banzuke algorithm

    The fact that GTB exists makes this an interesting case for trying reinforcement learning. Is there an easy way to get a full dump of sumodb, or is one limited to just doing queries against it?

    New Ozeki Takakeisho

    That's not true at all. Many baseball pitchers develop additional out pitches in midcareer, and it's very common for NFL players to move to a different position between university and the pros. MMA fighters who don't have a ground game develop one, and so forth. It's far, far more than "some exceptions."

    New Ozeki Takakeisho

    I thought Tochinoshin was the shortest ever Ozeki. (Sorry, too soon?)
  15. I suppose if I were a Yokozuna, I'd rather have the YDC grumbling about something irrelevant than grumbling about my sumo. Especially if I had just put down a performance with relatively little for them to grumble about. Did they grumble about Kakuryu at all, or was Hakuho their only topic? (Also, why do I get the feeling that they would have grumbled about "lack of leadership" if he hadn't attempted to do something to mark the end of the era?)
