    Game 21 for KyuShu Basho 2022

    I am alive and well. I have essentially lost interest.
  3. Now would be a good time to either kill this thread or change its headline.

    Have a go at a Haiku!

    An excellent reference about Haiku with 1-2 hundred examples. There are several other sources for the book.

    There was a news leak. This basho, the macaron will have the gay pride rainbow.

    Most of them have distinctly impressive looking mothers.

    Preparations of the masses- July 2022

    I seldom hear of juryo visitors for deigeko. Do they participate or is it essentially a makuuchi only activity?

    Strength of Yūshō

    Retirement is a good starting point for all those projects that have been sitting on the back burner. Those projects lead to new ones.

    Podcast in general.
  12. From a career standpoint, these all make a difference. The specific basho when the rank is acquired is meh!! The rikishi may have already been there or will be there shortly. It is seldom a one-shot occurrence. The question of whether to add a bonus sanyaku rank is usually a matter of the banzuke committee having its mawashi in a bind rather than a specific rikishi's qualification.
  13. 90% of the number of sanyaku questions only has significance in GTB. In real life, it doesn't really matter much. The joi-jin has 16 slots. Once you get below Ozeki, the ranks become a vertical line. It doesn't really matter what you call the members of the line.

    New Juryo for Nagoya 2022

    Jokoryu's cheeks have the better definition. The difference in the mawashi coloration creates an illusion which favors the appearance of Chiyosakae's cheeks.
