    Yutakayama Intai

    He was always a bit more emotional than your average rikishi, for better or worse (often for worse). To his credit though, he actively tried to calm himself down with a pre-bout routine involving some kind of unspoken eye-contact conversation with his tsukebito in the hanamichi. I guess with his injuries, he just knew he wasn't returning to that brief sparkle of form he had a few years ago. Still, I think his success was a fine validation of the new sandanme-tsukedashi system. I wish him well.

    I love these half-time classics. I really hope we get to see Kotoshogiku and Kisenosato in old boy sumo one day.

    Joukouryuu retires

    They're basically a heya of college rikishi, so that's not overly surprising.

    Throwback to that time he got his kinboshi on his freshly injured knee.

    Shimanoumi's unfortunate run continues.... got mis-announced at "Shimazuumi" during the juyro dohyo-iri.

    Rikishi Status - 2022 Aki

    I wonder if this is the end for Asashiyu.

    Kaisei Intai

    Could that be after the Kisenosato bout Aki 2018? I only remember it because he was so exhausted he was pulling faces like that up the hanamichi.

    And not only him, but his stablemates too. That's a real shame.

    On the contrary, the one thing you can expect from Shodai is that he'll wake up to spoil somebody else.

    Farcical basho?

    Kyushu 2017 sticks out in my mind. You had the Harumafuji scandal break, and Hakuho's infamous mono-ii attempt. To make matters worse, the actual tournament itself was a complete dud.

    Corona and sumo

    Good thing Oshoryu dropped off the leaderboard today.

    Nagoya 2022

    I don't know what's up between these two guys, but they seem to bring angry sumo against each other.

    I'm still not used to seeing Gaga that slim.
