  1. Lol yeah, SumoForum is not “public pressure” ... we’re not even speaking Japanese!

    This IS the July 2020 Basho thread!! Spoilers!!

    Loved the Terunofuji-Tochinoshin match, looked like they could both pick each other up for just a second! Congrats to Kotoshogiku and Tamawashi getting their kachi koshi today too. It's been an exciting basho so far, almost makes up for my decision to pick Abi, Yutakayama, AND Onosho for fantasy sumo this basho :(

    Tochinoshin lifted Shimanoumi after he couldn't quite stick his initial throw attempt. Looked better today but I'll wait to see him up against stronger competition

    Okay this is the spoilers thread! Hoshoryu v. Ichinojo was much more exciting than I was expecting. Love the new Takakeisho Yakult kesho mawashi. It was really strange to hear clapping instead of vocalizing during the yokozuna dohyo iri.

    July basho?

    Idk if this is the spoilers thread or not, there isn't anything clearly designated. Pretty surreal to hear only applause instead of cheers and vocal crowd reactions. Just glad to see sumo back! Ichinojo v. Hoshoryu is up next!

    Tochiozan Retirement

    I started watching sumo too late to see him at his best, so I'll have to go back and watch some old basho. A Jun-Yusho in a playoff, 6 kinboshi and 6 sansho is a pretty good haul!

    Hello From Seattle

    Hey I live in Seattle too! I've only been watching for a couple of years but getting really into Fantasy Sumo and some games. Wish we could meet up to watch together but that's probably not a good idea right now...

    Haven’t seen a thread for this anywhere else, but I just saw this tweet from Sumo Kyokai:

    Kimarite Statistics - 2020 Haru

    I was just confused about the "backwards" part of fumidashi. I was expecting Hakuyozan to be facing the inside of the ring and step backwards out of the ring, but I guess "backwards" in this context just means out of the ring

    Goeido to Retire

    I have some extra time now that I'm stuck at home so I cut together a bunch of Kintamayama videos to make a Goeido Kubinage highlight reel. Gonna miss the champion of Kubinage

    I haven't seen a report about Andrew, but I believe his brother Chris is the one who has tested positive, for now

    Kimarite Statistics - 2020 Haru

    Thanks for all of these stats! I should be done with my kimarite video in the next 24 hours. Did you see the fumidashi in Juryo, Hakuyozan and Tobizaru? I'm not really sure why it was called that way, I didn't see Hakuyozan step out backwards anywhere in the replays.

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Just occurred to me that this might be the first basho in a loooong time where rikishi aren't going out for drinks after every bout.
