    The AFL has been suspended since the end of round 1.

    Name it - The Day After...

    We may need to invent a new term if Natsu winds up not happening, and Ozumo joins the rest of the sports world in pausing for the duration.
  3. I'd be surprised if there weren't at least some cancelled bashos in store for the near future, which would extend Hakuho's career chronologically without causing more wear and tear on his body. Nothing obviously has been announced, but getting Natsu to happen is going to be extremely difficult, and we may be in for a lengthy pause. Hakuho has said that he planned to retire in 2020, which gives us up to four more bashos with him. I'd be astonished if four bashos actually take place before a hypothetical mid-2021 Olympics.

    Name it - The Day After...

    It's not quite cold turkey -- there's a bit of dust-settling for a day or two after Senshuraku, with final updates getting posted, the YDC deliberating, new Juryo announcements, and so forth. A week or so after, things get really dead, though. I have banzuke day marked in my calendar, and look ahead to that.

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    So, does this mean that the audience is now kadoban? I hope they turn up for at least eight days whenever the next basho is held....

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    10- "I'm not thinking of the yusho." <--- I am thinking of little else. There. Fixed it.

    Basho cancellation?

    In the NBA case, there really was a good reason to test them early: players, officials, and team staff were potential disease vectors from city to city, potentially exposing whole arenas full of spectators at a time, and propagating the disease to all the other arenas throughout the league. And a positive test from the NBA got everyone to take the threat seriously, and got large spectator events shut down. In the NSK case, Chiyomaru wasn't tested until he met the same criteria as a member of the general public would have needed.

    That makes me suspect that there are a lot more cases than have been detected or reported.

    Shodai, a possible Ozeki ?

    Shodai speculated to be next Ozeki. Film at 11.

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Did they stage-manage having all the reporters and ring officials react in unison to Terutsuyoshi's salt ball throw? It's kind of awesome if so.

    Wrestling isn't a winter sport. It's frequently scheduled during the winter, but that doesn't make it a winter sport.

    Rikishi Status - 2020 Haru

    Hey, QI gives their audience a score (and the audience even won an episode), so why not the NSK?

    Rikishi Status - 2020 Haru

    One will definitely not be on the next banzuke. Will both of them be gone?

    He caught the 3:10.

    Haru Predictions

    An epidemic of dry coughs and "fevers" from slightly banged up rikishi who could use some rest to get completely healthy.
