    Haru 2022 Discussion Thread (SPOILERS!)

    That Kaiketsu example is incredible. He only faced TWO rikishi that ended with a losing record in Haru 1972.

    Man, if someone would have told me that Shodai was going to finish with a better record than Takakeisho after days 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,and 12 I would have laughed in their face MERCILESSLY. I have been humbled. So much respect for Shodai. The man is truly an enigma

    Haru 2022 Discussion Thread (SPOILERS!)

    I owe Shodai an apology. WOW. He looked completely listless on the dohyo those first 5 days. I would have never guessed he would have made it to a match with Takakeisho, let alone win it this basho.

    So what are the chances that Shodai pulls out and shoots for 10 wins next tournament? I cant see him beating a 0-3 Ura. Also, kinda surprised that Endo and Ishiura have never faced each other before. Unfortunately, we won't get to see it tomorrow either.

    As someone who is newer to the sumo world, this post was extremely helpful.

    Close. All except Hakuho. His sole win against the yokozuna was when he was at S1w Hastsu 2019 Edit: nevermind, I reread what you said. It makes sense now.

    Obesity Deaths

    Still learning about the sumo world, is smoking really a problem with the rikishi? You would think they would avoid damaging their lungs since stamina is already going to be an issue while trying to haul around a massive frame.

    Kyushu 2021 discussion

    Although if Abi manages to win tomorrow it will make the day 15 Y/O bout extremely important (provided that Abi wins his day 14 and 15 bouts). Would be interesting to see Teru have to beat Takakeisho and Abi back to back to yusho...

    Hakuho retires

    I started watching sumo in March 2017, Hakuho was injured and out by day 5. When I saw him come back and zensho in May, I was floored. Watching someone be so dominant in a sport was incredible to say the least. When Kisenosato or Kakuryu lost a match, it was never surprising/shocking. But when Hakuho lost a match, even if it was to someone in san'yaku, it felt like history was made. He wasn't expected to lose and always looked like he was giving 110%. At least that's how I saw it. I'll miss the gravitas of Hakuho's matches.
