    Youngest vs oldest on the banzuke? Just a guess given their DOB's.

    Green! Damn, I went for pink! Thanks for the reply though!

    Really important question: what colour was the macaron because I missed it? (My family play 'guess the colour').
  6. Well done all, especially Philioyamfuji on the win. Thanks to Achiyama for all his hard work too, appreciated. Interesting TUG this time around, nearly half the field (me included) had an 0-4 start or worse!
  7. 34 -- Aoiyama (vs. Takayasu) - 30 or 34?

    So emotional - Teru has a tear in his eye. What a comeback - awesome.

    'Torpedo'? If they ain't good enough to beat him ... that's not Mita's fault. They need to work harder or slack better.

    I really love Mitakeumi, I'm totally convinced that he decided a long time a go that Ozeki would be too much hassle - he's a genius at 'just doing enough'. Such talent who looks like he can't be arsed.

    Hopefully that settles Terunofuji's re-promotion and he might go even further tomorrow. I like Takayasu but his total inability to clinch a yusho is really annoying me now - mentally he's just not good enough and I don't think he'll be in contention tomorrow. Big Dan is in monster mode this basho, I'd love to see him continue like that in the future. I was surprised to see Ura compete today, I was kind of hoping he would take the last two days off but, he got an easy win and looked like he wasn't in pain (unlike yesterday). Oh, Enho got squashed and congratulations to Shonanzakura, 90th consecutive loss I believe.

    Absolutely. 100%. There should be a trained medic at the dohyo with suitable equipment like back-boards and neck-braces at hand with people trained in their use. I'm convinced now that the only thing that will enable this to happen is some poor rikishi suing the Sumo Association for damages due to a lack of care after sustaining life changing injuries. This level of medical care just doesn't cut it in the 21st century. No excuses, whether they are based on 'tradition', 'religion' or 'culture'.

    Anyone heard whether Ura is going to take a few days off after getting KK today?

    Just caught up on Juryo - Ura looked in a lot of pain after his win today. If he turns up tomorrow and beats Bushozan to KK I hope he takes the last couple of days off. Loved Akua's sprightly, wide-armed, stomp back to his position after his win. Nice to see good old Chiyomaru leading the field too.
