    Retirements after Natsu 2024

    Glad to see Bariki can bend over slightly.

    Akiseyama Intai

    Curious who this final opponent is going to be. This could be a really far-fetched guess but... Kiyoseumi?

    Kyujo Updates - 2024 Natsu

    I've always had a bad feeling the guy's going to become Daikiho #2, I don't need yet another ominous sign.

    Oyakata activities

    Still not used to this.

    Akebono dead at 54

    Fighter to the end As good a time as any to repost this wonderful talk he gave

    Haru 2024 discussion (results)

    I sense a Takakeisho henka in the coming days.

    Terutsuyoshi Intai

    He really didn't strike me as an oyakata type, so I'm not surprised. Re-bleach the hair, maybe.

    Michinoku beya likely to close

    Greatest since Tagonoura at least.
  9. Not sure I've ever wanted to click on anything less in my life.
  10. Nishikigi's earlier golden run towards the joi (2019-ish) happened around the time of his marriage, I remember.

    Ridiculous Predictions Aki 2023

    Hakuoho's former shoulder decides to compete in his absence. It does pretty well and leads the pack at the midway point, but injures itself more severely after trying to throw hefty Kotonowaka without stable footing.

    Former Maegashira Daikiho intai

    Glad he was able to have a nice event, finally. He had to have been the most overdue that I was aware of.

    Aki 2023 Retirements

    Unfortunate, but at the same time, I wasn't looking forward to him coming back and henka-ing even more jonokuchi/jonidan guys he should far outclass.

    Nagoya 2023 discussion (results)

    Nishikigi doesn't face the upper ranks often, but he's got a knack for upsets. I remember him doing something almost the exact same thing to Goeido the first time he faced him. It's like he's got more upper body strength than they expect or something.

    New ozeki Kirishima

    Everyone looks better entering an airport than exiting it.

    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.

    New juryo Haru 2023 pics overview

    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.

    Videos-Kyushu Basho 2022 - Days 1-15

    I love these half-time classics. I really hope we get to see Kotoshogiku and Kisenosato in old boy sumo one day.
