  1. Dunno about the division name but the members would be called ojikata and post intai they will be called ojiikata instead of oyakata

    Keiko mawashi stolen!!

    Wth... This is the first thing I read in the morning and I know already that it's going to be my read of the day! Underwear theft doesn't seem to be uncommon in Japan (once happened at the place where I lived, girl undies), but mawashi........... Poor guy and his bunny.
  3. I think a possible analogy would be like having sand, water, and oil in two vessels of different heights (volumes), and then you stir it. With the same/similar stirring force (torikumi within 7-8 ranks or so), it's easier to mix things in the smaller vessel (juryo) than the big one (makuuchi). So the stratification/separation in makuuchi is more pronounced. And of course, the top dogs don't stay long in juryo and so this reduces their chances of scoring a juryo zensho.

    Do you eat eggs for breakfast?

    I love the smell of fried egg in the morning! But usually I don't have much time in the morning, so just toast and cheese. So, only in hotels.

    This IS the July 2020 Basho thread!! Spoilers!!

    Almost forgot that happened Who at that point would've thought that the basho would end like this? I guess if Hakuho didn't pull out he would have been happy instead to take on Terunofuji as a test for both of them (and show that wry smile when defeated). One instance that Hakuko might have tried to 'run away' is probably when he nearly broke his arm defeating Kakuryu to avoid a playoff with a 14-1 monster Ichinojo.

    Ah I see, so by rank it seems (lowest ranker takes the first straw). Waka (S) - Taka (O) - Akebono (Y).

    Thanks for the answers. And who gets to draw the first straw? Simultaneously? Sorry if I'm being petty, just curious about the details.

    In the case of a 3-way playoff, how do they decide who go first? Rank-based or just drawing lots?
