    Rumored Shikona: Ochai will be...

    I'm sure this has been mentioned before, but I'm surprised he wrestled under the Ochiai name at all. Given how superstitious sumo can be, I was expecting it to be considered bad luck or something to have a shikona with 落 (drop, fall) in it.

    Injured Takakeisho one win away from clearing kadoban. Meisei, known for having a really fast and energetic tachiai. Everyone knew what was coming. Except Meisei, somehow.

    Tochinoshin intai

    Mitakeumi needed to make yokozuna, so Kaisei could finally beat one.

    exYokozuna Orora performs kanreki dohyoiri

    I thought it was (fittingly) Kitanoumi, but maybe the legs are too skinny.

    The moment he realised he had it.

    Next salt-thrower

    In all seriousness, I don't think we'll see another one until Terutsuyoshi is retired, even if he kicks around in the unsalaried divisions for a while.

    That, and getting out of that Nakagawa stable environment.

    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.
