    Hiro Morita’s “Sumo Prime Time”

    I've been watching sumo for about 6 years now and I had no idea that the shimekomi cost $10,000! So a rikishi changing mawashi in the middle of a tournament is a 10k investment? Do rikishi ever trade or borrow a shimekomi from each other or a retired rikishi?

    What does it take to force 3 or more sekiwake spots in general? Is there any chance of 3 sekiwake (Ichinojo, Wakatakakage, Hoshoryu) and then 3 komusubi (Abi, Kiribayama, Daieisho)?

    Woah, just watched... that was a sickening noise. Glad he recovered from that.

    I find myself rooting for him too. If records could reflect effort, he would be high on the list. I could see him getting winning a basho like Tamawashi's 2019 Hastu one day. In fact, Tamawashi is a good comparison to him, both have talent and effort but may only be able to string it together for 15 days once or twice in a career.

    I'm with you there. These last few tournaments have made me a fan of his journey. The man has the ugliest tachi-ai of Makuuchi but is poised to be ranked 3rd or even 2nd highest on the banzuke come September. How? I don't know but I find myself rooting for his success.

    At this point I'm rooting for an 11-4 Shodai because why not.

    Hat doesn’t taste great, maybe I’ll try it with hot sauce next time. Shodai is a mystery wrapped in a enigma wrapped in a conundrum.

    Oh cool I didn't know that. To me that makes zabuton throwing even more entertaining.

    Like an announcement on the intercoms? I haven't noticed in the broadcasts.

    If Shodai does something crazy like beating Ichinojo in a few days, I'll eat a hat. (I hear hat eating is all the rage on this forum).

    Same! I wonder if there was an announcement against the practice or something?

    Looked like Hoshoryu held onto Ichinojo's belt a little long after being forced out. I don't think Ichi enjoyed being dragged off the ring.

    Right? Honestly it was an ok win but when the zabutons started to fly I had to go back and watch the match again to make sure I didn’t miss something special. I think the people have been pent up and were waiting for the slightest excuse to throw the mats!
