    Takakeisho injury update

    Meanwhile, in North America, the Steelers (of the NFL) just shut down (star player) Stephon Truitt for the season after a similar injury. It's a shame that sumo doesn't have the concept of "season-ending surgery."

    Takakeisho injury update

    Sumo is traditional. Traditional Chinese/Japanese medicine, including acupuncture, moxibustion, and shiatsu (which is organically Japanese) is traditional. It's also a relatively non-invasive way to activate the placebo effect.
  3. There's a reason why it's called "Guess the Banzuke," not "Construct the Banzuke."

    2019 Aki Basho Discussion (spoiler alert!)

    Wow, what a weak and tentative tachiai in that Enho-Kotoeko match. It was as if they were both surprised that it wasn't a matta.

    2019 Aki Basho Discussion (spoiler alert!)

    When he puts his mind to it, Goeido can look strong enough to make you wonder why he doesn't always put his mind to it.

    BG record

    But hey, he's recovered enough to defeat a powerhouse like Hattorizakura.

    Hakuho bows graciously. The YDC praises Hakuho for upholding sumo tradition.

    Ridiculous Predictions for Aki 2019

    Hattorizakura wins the Jonokuchi yusho. Takayasu wins the Makuuchi yusho, with a record of 14-0-1. Both Hakuho and Kakuryu stay in for all 15 days.

    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.
