    It would be helpful if there were a way to know who the "he" in a post might be. Quote can be your friend.

    Ridiculous Predictions for Haru 2019

    On Day 10, Takakeisho accidentally gets his fingers entangled in Takayasu's mawashi. They both quit on the assumption that a hansoku has occurred.

    One of his matches is a visit to jonidan where he defeats Terunofuji with an ipponzeoi.

Tochinofuji brings up the most disagreeable slot. One unanimous match and several close to it. This should be an interesting basho. Note: Tenshin's entry arrived after the deadline. It will not be included for this basho, but one will be welcome in May. No 21 matches scheduled for Day 1. Let's get this thing going!

  13. He started in Jonokuchi out of a university background which probably put him at a mid-makushita or above capability. He has met his initial expectations. Some hype started during the last basho. Haru could become his breakout basho.

    21 Har Har 19, The Results

    Welcome to the 21 game for Haru 19. The game is a simple pre-basho game in which you are given 21 matchups that may occur in the next basho. Your job is to decide whether each match will occur, and, if so, who will win it. Each of the 42 makuuchi rikishi will be found in one and only one match. This is the annual Har-Har basho where the normal match selection criteria are thrown out. This year, the rikishi are listed alphabetically within 3 rank groupings. Entries are submitted as posts in this topic. Each match will have two rikishi labeled “A” and “B”. For each match, enter the match number and either A or B for your selected winner. If you do not think the match will occur, enter an “X”. For example: 1. A 2. X 3. B ... The winner is the entry with the most correct answers. (X counts.) If one of the rikishi for a match does not appear on the dohyo for the entire basho, that match will be counted as correct for all entries. An entry other than A, B or X will be counted as incorrect. If two or more entrants have the same number of correct picks, the one having the FEWEST other entrants making each of those correct picks will be the leader. If the agreement counts are equal, the entrant with the earliest time of entry will be the leader. Entry deadline is 2 days before shonichi at 05:00 AM (JST) on Friday, March 8. No new entries or entry modifications will be accepted after the deadline. Here are the 21 matches for HAR HAR 19. The numbers in parens are the the results of the most recent matches between the two. Har Har 19 A B 1 M2e Daieisho (1-0) M2w Myogiryu 2 M1e Endo (0-0) M3e Nishikigi 3 O1w Goeido (4-1) M3w Shodai 4 Ye Hakuho (1-1) Se Takakeisho 5 Kw Hokutofuji (1-2) O1e Takayasu 6 M1e Kaisei (1-3) Sw Tamawashi 7 Yw Kakuryu (2-2) O2e Toshinoshin 8 Ke Mitakeumi (2-1) M4e Tochiozan 9 M6w Abi (1-1) M6e Okinoumi 10 M7e Aoiyama (2-2) M5w Onosho 11 M8e Asanoyama (1-4) M11e Ryuden 12 M5e Chiyotairyu (0-0) M9e Sadanoumi 13 M4w Ichinojo (0-4) M10e Shohozan 14 M9w Ikioi (3-1) M7w Takarafuji 15 M8w Kotoshogiku (0-0) M10w Yago 16 M12e Chiyonokuni (1-1) M11w Meisei 17 M17e Chiyoshoma (0-0) M14e Terutsuyoshi 18 M16e Daishoho (1-0) M13e Tomokaze 19 M15e Ishiura (1-1) M14w Toyonoshima 20 M13w Kagayaki (3-2) M12w Yoshikaze 21 M15w Kotoeko (1-0) M16w Yutakayama Each match must appear on a separate line in your entry.
