  1. So who realistically thinks that Terunofuji will beat Takakeisho twice tomorrow? Honestly I hope he does but my mind is saying "naa that's not going to happen"

    September (Aki) Basho- offical thread (yay..)

    I guess my question on day 10 wasn't as crazy of a thought as I initially thought!

    Preparations of the Y/O- November 2020

    Ohhh. Ok I understand what you're saying here. Thanks for the clarification.

    I'm confused here. How can you be emotional about something you're not conscious of? I'm I missing something?

    Retired after Aki 2020

    Would you happen to have more details on this case?

    Retired after Aki 2020

    Just out of curiosity, can a rikishi retire and then come out of retirement? This happens in American sports every once-in-a-while (Michael Jordan and Rob Gronkowski off the top of my head).

    September (Aki) Basho- offical thread (yay..)

    Question, if Shodai wins out (crazy thought I know) would he get promoted to Ozeki with 32 wins and a yusho?

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Also, is anyone else worried that Tochiozan is going to go down to get set for the tachiai and never get up? That man squats so slow! I swear, without the crowd, I can hear his knees slowly screaming "stoooop" each time he gets set...

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    I think the lack of a crowd is going to hurt the fan-favorites latter in the tournament. Many athletes really do get a boost in confidence and adrenaline from cheering fans. I remember running track, and the meets where I could hear people cheering for me were my best performances. There's definitely something psychological about it.

    Wakaichiro has retired

    Dang sad to see this. As an African American, it was pretty cool to see a half black sumo wrestler. I showed him to my mom and she was like "Black people are sumo wrestling now?!" Gonna miss em

    Hatsu 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Shodai with that head nod today - that boy was really feeling himself! Looking forward to his match with Takakeisho.

    Hatsu 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Asanoyama vs Shodai is an interesting match for tomorrow. Anyone think that Shodai will win this one? Asanoyama lost his University coach today so I wonder how that will play into the match.... Sumo is filled with so many side stories - it really keeps things interesting.
