    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.
  7. 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: 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.

    Hatsu 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    If that matta by Endo was deliberate, that was brave as hell, because I'm fairly sure that's what set Hakuho off last time.

    Fukurou memorial kyujo rikishi list - Hatsu 2020

    He was wrestling with back problems so obvious and severe it hurt to watch.

    Hakuho Applying for Japanese Citizenship

    I wonder if he'll nickname the torch 'Enho'.
  20. He's already touched on Moriurura and Hattorizakura. https://www.japantimes.co.jp/sports/2019/03/22/sumo/sumo-101-consistent-losers/

    2019 Kyushu Basho Discussion (spoiler alert)

    So we have two sets of heya-mates in the lead for the makushita yusho. We could be in for an interesting play-off.

    2019 Kyushu Basho Discussion (spoiler alert)

    There was a Gagamaru-Enho bout in juryo ages ago that was a lot like the Enho-Yutakayama bout today. Gagamaru kept refusing to charge blindly into a henka, but the gyoji kept calling matta (something like 3 times) until he did.

    Rikishi Status Kyushu 2019

    I doubt he's finished. He was still a yusho contender as recently as May, and he has a young family to provide for.

    Dohyo-iri Evolution

    Wajima's looked like he just reviewed the steps the night before. It was probably a very early in his yokozuna career.
