    Lower division celebs results

    Wow, so Sagatsukasa beat Tomokaze today.

    Nagoya Basho 2021

    If I was Hakuho, I wouldn't even be mad. I'd just feel like "damn, I still go it!" to make someone completely shut down mentally like that from presence alone. Odd as it may be, that was the first time in a while where I really felt like that dominant era Hakuho was still around.

    Favourite gyoji

    I like Kimura Kankuro (Yamahibiki) in makushita. He's got such a a great scream. Really puts his diaphragm into it.

    Nagoya Basho 2021

    I was admiring how smooth Konosuke was at getting the sagari out of the way. Shame he kinda rendered it moot by getting the decision wrong. Night establishments.

    Nagoya Basho 2021

    Asahisho once gave Takagenji an extra thrust to the face because he didn't like his manners.

    Nagoya Basho 2021

    Damn, Takakeisho just... stopped. Even Ichinojo clued in that something bad happened and got gentle with him.

    Nagoya Basho 2021

    What was encouraging about the whole episode is that it looked like Enho wanted to carry on, but the shimpan overruled him. Enho looked real unhappy that he was being denied. Shimpan were proven right when he stumbled just mounting the dohyo again, though.

    I swear Shonan does even worse than usual in matches where you think he may have a chance, though.

    Ikioi retires

    I'll always remember Haru 2018. Ikioi was clearly very injured. Every day, after his bout, he'd be walking back up the hanamichi so gingerly it was a wonder he was doing sumo at all. He got 11 wins. And one of the losses was a hairpull, so he could've easily had 12. The Osaka crowd was loving it. It's like their noise was feeding him energy or something. It was amazing.

    Banzuke for Nagoya 2021

    Imagine if Kagamio enters one match to prevent going banzuke-gai, and they pit him against you-know-who.

    There's also Touma and Ishii still using their family names.

    Asahisho retires

    Will become Kiriyama-oyakata. I bet they can't wait to get this guy in the commentary box.

    Preparations of the masses- Nagoya 2021

    I think I just heard a gyoji's heart shatter.
  14. What happens around here is community discussion. He's just one guy doing amateur analysis on his own. I mean, he does fine, really.

    Asahisho retires

    It was Minato. The incident even made it onto Asahisho's english wikipedia page.

    The English commentators- views

    Raja is how I learned all the terminology when I first started watching. He's great for first-timers.

    Azumazeki beya folding

    Azumazeki did have one of the most popular rikishi in sumo at the time. Maybe they attracted a lot of supporters.
  18. Or as Mark E. Smith would call it, "Hype Run Ambiguou-SAH".

    Sumo ‘What ifs?’

    What if Wakanoho never got arrested? How far would he have climbed? And would we have Terunofuji (with a different shikona) at all?

    Ryuden Scandal

    I assume he's back in the heya, too? His wife may have thrown him out anyway.

    Hokuseiho - Shot at a record?

    It'll be interesting when he starts facing opponents more than once. When he's no longer an awkward surprise package.

    Takaryu intai

    I've never really been a fan of the guy, ever since this (video linked, not embedded, because it contains an injury so gruesome the shinpan visibly recoil). It's not the injury itself, that's part of sumo, but the fact he doesn't even give Asatenmai a second glance afterwards. That said, I do kinda wonder where it went wrong with Takaryu after such a quick ascension. If he plummeted due to injury, I could understand, but it seems like he just trickled further and further down.

    T-rex size to go with those t-rex arms.

    Natsu basho 2021

    I swear Terunofuji always ends up standing next to Teruya in the big moments. It's uncanny.

    Quakuryu. I'm sorry.
