    Japan beat Ireland at Rugby World Cup

    I thought Japan’s momentum was shifted due to “cancellation drama”. But they keep playing good till end to finally through to quarterfinal. おめでとう, 日本ラグビー代表!!!

    2019 Aki Basho Discussion (spoiler alert!)

    I think it was due to Takakeisho’s lower rank (west sekiwake) than Mitakeumi (east sekiwake). IIRC, it was also mentioned on NHK’s english sumo broadcast. IMO, the schedule-maker probably thought it’s better to have just 1 playoff game rather than more than 1 playoff game for the sake of NHK’s 6pm news hehe.

    2019 Aki Basho Discussion (spoiler alert!)

    Good win by mitakeumi but I wonder about something what does yusho winner do after those presentation until ending up in NHK’s studio? Quickly do the parade —> huge sake cup and fish presentation —> senshuraku party —> NHK Sunday Sports studio?
