    Ridiculous Predictions for Kyushu 2019

    1.) all the upper ranked rikishi get make-koshi, and the lower ranked get kachi-koshi, so a maegashira 5 or higher has to be demoted to juryo (and - sorry - poor ichinojo ) 2.) Hakuho retires because he is no longer able to get a yusho 3.) Shodai yusho!

    Ridiculous Predictions for Aki 2019

    Hakuho - has decided to be a gentleman and fair player from now on - no dirty tricks, nomore kachiage and so on - and therefore goes MK Shodai - visitors at Tokitsukaze beya who eat up their whole chanko are no longer accepted, so the hungry and weakened rikishi finally recovered and got stronger - Yusho for Shodai!!! .... or ist ist rather (hard to decide): Endo?- Yusho! giving an excellent yusho interview, can't stop talking, exceeding his speaking time by 10 minutes and causing some trouble for the NHK broadcast

    Nagoya 2019 Discussion (here be spoilers)

    Yes, the parade. But I was wrong - it was Toyonoshima - also a good choice

    What rikishi do you miss the most?

    totally agree ...and Takakeisho (for this basho, if that counts) - missing him really hurts

    Tune played during Emperor's Cup ceremony

    Thank you... indeed, I did - although I thought about registering since I came across this forum a year ago, but sometimes you just need a push. Japanese people love Classical music, so maybe that's why they play it

    Tune played during Emperor's Cup ceremony

    I guess you mean "Tochter Zion, freue dich", a popular Christmas carol in German-speaking countries. I am not religious but I often join church choir concerts during Christmas time, so I remembered this tune. I was also surpised why they play it during the ceremony, so I looked it up and found it is originally from G. F. Haendels oratorio "Joshua" and "Judas Maccabaeus" where the text is"See, the conqu’ring hero comes...." which fits better to the ceremony.
