    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Yeah, that was a strange decision. He did well to keep his feet in as long as he did, but for nothing.

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Fuzen's don't really count for those (or do they?). Isn't more the case that he now has to reach his "magic number" in 14 matches?

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    That Takayasu injury looked very... Ryuden. The fact that he could barely move is very worrying, like it wasn't "just" his arm or leg.

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Very weird, that Mitoryu - Akua bout. It's almost like Akua took a soccer-style dive off the ring to fake being dame-oshi'd.

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    No repeat performance for the tongue-wiggle.

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    I'm liking that we get to hear Kotoeko's name announced with an actual echo echo echo.

    Rikishi Status - 2020 Haru

    Bariki's quality of life must already be messed up if that's how good he looked after three years of kyujo and banzuke-gai. Also, ouch for Gokushindo. Just as he was recovering his lost ground.

    Corona and sumo

    Man, some of the face slaps are going to echo like crazy.

    Corona and sumo

    I'd say at least they'd have the heya senshuraku party, but even some of those are being cancelled.

    New recruits for Haru 2020

    No, that used to be a loophole, but they closed it.

    New recruits for Haru 2020

    Why not name them after the two towers of Orthanc and Baradur? Wait, I think one of those fell down too.

    Banzuke for Haru 2020

    There's also rikishi that had a career-ending injuries before they could win a yusho, but I don't really know any candidates.

    Heya A-Z with (partial) pictorial history

    Did he and Roman make a break for it last year or something?

    44th Fuji TV Grand Sumo Tournament

    Broadcast seems to be skipping over several bouts. Not sure if there's several late kyujo, or if they're just prioritizing ads...

    44th Fuji TV Grand Sumo Tournament

    I hope next year we can get Araiso vs ex-Kotoshogiku

    Goeido to Retire

    Glad he gave us one last kubinage before bowing out.
  17. I'm halfway convinced that Kagayaki's turnaround since Fukuoka has to do with his scary looking oyakata being on head shimpan duty.

    Goeido to Retire

    Watching the Osaka basho won't be quite the same without his raucous hometown support.

    Hatsu 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    I'm speechless. I guess Takakeisho is blasting him out twice tomorrow, but who the hell knows what's gonna happen anymore.

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Hatsu 2020

    It's not too likely yet, but Haru could be the first time in decades that there's not a single Koto- in makuuchi.

    Terunofuji Watch

    Terunofuji: A Cartilage Too Far ... or just, Terunofuji Watch.

    Hatsu 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    I think Aoiyama learned the Takagenji lesson of getting under Terutsuyoshi's skin before the bout

    Hatsu 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    I've thought this for a while, but the tate-gyoji really wouldn't know a matta if it slapped him in the face. Enho's hand never even getting close to the clay.

    Hatsu 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    And now that I've said that, he's done a small dame-oshi today.

    Hatsu 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    That surprises me to hear. From all I ever see of him, he's one of those guys who takes care of his opponents once the match is decided. Like Kaisei does.
