    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.

    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

    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.

    Banzuke for Hatsu 2020

    Also hoping for an Ichinojo Juryo Basho. I hope he is healthy now. Any update on that?

    Banzuke for Hatsu 2020

    I really want to see Enho v Tochinoshin. Either Enho gets ahold on the front of Tochi's belt and pulls or Tochi grabs Enho and throws him out of the ring like King Kong. Either way, I'd be entertained

    Agreed! Chiyomaru deserved that win through and through. It's just not consistent though. In that Ura match yesterday Ura was clearly in the drivers seat but got overturned because the back of his hand hit the ground a split second before his opponent.

    Chiyomaru got lucky today. His his left foot stepped out before Sadanoumi landed out. Was I the only one to see that?

    2019 Kyushu Basho Discussion (spoiler alert)

    As a someone who has only been watching sumo for a year and a half at this point, I felt the same exact way. It was an exciting match that had me on the edge of my seat. I loved the strategy that Yutakayama used and it made me appreciate both rikishi even more after the bout!
