    Ridiculous Predictions Kyushu 2022

    Well, after all that has happened, I was about to predict that they would promote Takakeisho to Y right away anyway since those T-rex arms may last longer than Terunofuji's knees, even knees v.2. To fill the ozeki spot they promote Hoshoryu and Takayasu, and promised Hokutofuji if he gets kachikoshi next basho. The reasons for this are (1) to balance banzuke east-west, (2) his impeccable post-match bowing; the upper makuuchi could use some extra hinkaku, (3) his hair may not last as long as Aminishiki's by the time of retirement, and (4) he kinda looks like Hakkaku's younger brother.

    Mitakeumi looks like a good candidate for a long-term sekiwake. He might make ozeki someday, who knows.

    Nice day of sumo today! Didn't expect that much fuel in the lower part of makuuchi. I also think Nishikigi's shoelace (as someone wrote on Hosh above) touched down first, but well... Hosh yusho, anyone?

    That's interesting, it uncovers this new dimension of nodowa I did not know about. Apparently it gives your opponent some fright (sure, when someone's grabbing your neck...), so it has some mental effect too.

    It's so heartwarming to see two athletes (in any sport) smiling and being nice to each other after a hard-fought match

    Congrats Tamawashi!! Takayasu tried his best, but no stopping beast-mode Tama. Hope his sansho photo is not as sad as last time
