    Trivia bits

    All those have met each other multiple times in a single division. I meant matchups that only met each other once in each divisions like the chiyo v teru example.

    Trivia bits

    I noticed that Terunofuji & Chiyonokuni have fought each other 3 times, however each time was in a different division. first in Juryo, second in Makuuchi, and third in Makushita. Are there any others with similar singular match-ups in 3 or more divisions, particularly in the upper divisions? I bet it's probably happened a couple of times in the lower divisions, (like say two strong rookies but one heads to sekitori and one is stuck in makushita), but not sure how to search for that.

    Retirements after Natsu 2022

    A lot less balder too. Oazuma probably wanted out before all his hair disappeared lol

    Natsu 2022 Discussion Thread - here be spoilers

    bit late, but I just noticed that yesterday was the first time in 11 years that chiyoarashi and shohozan had fought. back then, shohozan was fighting under his real name and had yet to reach juryo.

    Retirees after Haru 2022

    Finally they got rid of Kotonawa. Not sure why they left him there since he was clearly long gone. His instagram says he's an acupuncturist or something now. Now we move on to the mystery of Ounabara. I believe he may have initially run away, but he returned some time in 2019 or 2020 as his yearbook photo updated (heyaaz is down at the moment so can't confirm it). Not sure why he's not fighting though

    NSK posted a tweet stating former Juryo Sakigake has announced his retirement, one year after winning that 9 man ms playoff. https://twitter.com/sumokyokai/status/1509013507882176520 (don't know how to embed it sorry)

    Of course takayasu blows it yet again. watch him lose again tomorrow. the man is allergic to yusho it seems.

    Takakeisho is definitely taking it easy after his kk, he doesn't seem 100%. And that wall bang the other was from joy. you could see on his face he had some swagger, probably relieved he cleared his kadoban and can take it easy for the rest of the basho.

    Best day of sumo in a long time. Plenty of good matches, most of the frontrunners looked powerful, and we got plenty of blood. I am fully on the waka hype train now, he is on fire.

    7 out of the 9 ms kyujo are guys I'm actively watching. huge blow this basho, such a shame.

    Haru 2022 Discussion Thread (SPOILERS!)

    Takayasu v Sadanoumi yesterday was the first time they met in 6 years. Very unsual for 2 guys who have been in the same division all that time. Granted, Taka was ozeki most of that time, but even after he dropped they somehow never met.

    The Kotoshoho v Yago playoff is not in the db

    Trivia bits

    Off the top of my head, I know that Takanosho took 7 years to reach juryo but only 5 more basho to reach makuuchi, and Chiyomaru almost 7 years and 3 basho. Digging a bit, I see Hokutoriki took 9 years but only 2 juryo basho, and Takanomine 14 years and only 3 basho

    New Juryo for Haru 2022

    Poor Tochimaru can't catch a break. This is the 4th time or so that he's been denied promotion with a kk in the joi. at least he gets another chance next basho unlike similarly unlucky kotodaigo who seems to be injured again.
