    Gagamaru retired

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

    Nagoya 2022

    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.

    Ex-rikishi YT sumo channels

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

    Preparations of the masses- July 2022

    There was an NHK feature a while back where Hiro Morita went grocery shopping with Arashio-beya's chef. The bill that time came out to 80,000 Yen for two day's worth of meals.

    Funny videos and photos of rikishi at play

    Shades of Ama and Goeido.

    Ex-Kaounishiki finds a new job in sumo

    IIRC he wanted to become a sewanin or wakamonogashira, but couldn't. I'm happy he found a way back in.

    Awards for rikishi and oyakata

    Must be nice to be the guy with less product in his hair for once.

    "Okay, now you can weigh me."

    Heya A-Z with (partial) pictorial history

    Minor error with Chiyotsurugi, but thank you very much as always.

    Retirements after Hatsu 2022

    This guy's twitter was entertaining back in the day. Former tsukebito to Kisenosato and seemed like quite a character.

    Next Ozeki?

    Wakatakakage is probably too small, I think. I can see him as a respectable Sekiwake, but not putting Ozeki numbers together.

    Kyokushuuhou retires

    I thought so too. Looked like a good ani-deshi at any rate. I wonder if -taisei is going to be following him...

    Hakkiyoi! Ozumo promotion song

    I'm saddened that Gagamaru didn't go the oyakata route.

    Upcoming Kanreki

    Musashimaru has ballooned the last couple of years. He's had me worried for a while. I really don't want another Akebono.

    Obesity Deaths

    The cigarette culture is something that could theoretically be addressed without negatively impacting rikishi performance, the way body weight might.

    Kyushu 2021 discussion

    Kinbozan reminds me of Ichinojo in the interview room. Enormous foreigner with a small voice and darting eyes like "what on earth am I doing here!?"

    Even as far as successful henkas go, this was kinda embarrassing. (Fujiseiun - Asashiyu)

    What's with Oshoryu sporting twin black eyes?

    Kyushu 2021 discussion

    Terutsuyoshi's botched ashitori attempt looked like Hattorizakura taking a dive against that big scary opponent.

    Lower division celebs results

    Hozan/Naya is doing pretty well, considering how universally written-off he was before his career even started.

    Kyushu 2021 discussion

    Kagayaki, to my eye, looks like he's trying to diversify lately. He's been grabbing the mawashi more often, and visited inter-stable practice for the first time ever. He's probably clued in that he's hit a ceiling for the last few years. I don't expect dividends of it to come for a while though. I'm pretty sure he's been doing the same straight-ahead push sumo since his childhood.

    Hakuyozan injured yet again . The same knee as his giant brace.
