    Ridiculous Predictions September Basho

    On day 1, Gagamaru surprisingly turns up in a white van and takes to the dohyo wearing an ill fitting mawashi. Seemingly powered by some mystery force that takes him back to January 2012, he powers his way to a 7-0 sandanme yusho. Upon accepting the yusho certificate, as he bends to bow a small trinket is forced out of the mawashi and cracks on the dohyo floor, to reveal a small amount of grey dust. This finally solves what had become rab-bit of a mystery

    Banzuke for Aki 2020

    The second time his knee went, I really thought he Ura was done. Going to be really interesting to see if Terunofuji can keep it going. He was destroying the opposition in Juryo and now makuuchi, the only limiting factor seems to be staying fit for the full 2 weeks

    Par score is bound to be low though with the huge dollop of randomness thrown in this time

    Banzuke for Aki 2020

    Ichinojo a big surprise, and I didn’t expect Terunofuji to go as high as M1E

    Preparations of the Y/O- Aki 2020

    Quite a difference when Takakeisho is calling it bad form to talk about winning the yusho, and then Asanoyama comes right out and declares he’s looking for two yusho and a Yokozuna promotion, no less

    Didn’t get an email confirmation after I submitted, but am on the submitted entry list. Did anyone else get that?

    Shikihide beya troubles

    I’ve never even considered the possibility of rice going off before!

    Are Abi's days numbered?

    I can definitely see that happening

    Are Abi's days numbered?

    But it puts the decision in Abi’s hands. He can pay the (high) price but potentially go back to having a successful, lucrative career, or quit if he’s truly done with it

    Are Abi's days numbered?

    I’m glad the NSK have found a way to severely punish without driving rikishi out of the sport. Let’s hope they will apply the same to others in the future

    Rikishi Families In Attendance?

    A friend of mine went to one of the Tokyo basho last year and was sat next to Enho’s mum. And he was in the cheap seats at the top!

    General Corona Banter

    They were showing replays of old snooker matches on BBC yesterday. I almost succumbed...

    Completely agree re Nishikigi. Seems I might have to start factoring in a “Nishikigi bonus” much like the Shodai bonus of old where he always seemed to stay in the joi no matter how many MKs he racked up

    Corona and sumo

    Sounds like buying themselves time, I doubt they want to sell a load of tickets only to have to refund them again

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    To be fair, Kakuryu had an easy one against struggling Takakeisho today with Hakuho having the tricky Asanoyama match up

    Corona and sumo

    This is going to be completely bizarre. I can only imagine the sunk costs (venue hire etc) were so high that they decided to go ahead and at least take the TV revenue At least Goeido decided against bowing out in front of nobody at his home basho
