    Unless the famed Japanese numerologists deem it to be an inauspicious occasion.

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Although I don't understand Japanese, I frequently get the visual impression that Kitanofuji may be an alcoholic who is half in the bag during many of his performances. He may have a medical problem that causes this appearance.

    Juryo dohyo-iri

    For the earlier matches, the results are updated in mass after each shimpan change. When the juryo and makuuchi shimpans are on scene, the updates are posted after each match. Maybe the reason for the early delays is that the NSK assumes no one cares.

    It has also been about favoring/avoiding pressure on his right foot. That has led to some of his erratic movements and prolonged matches.

    Rikishi Status - 2020 Haru

    The day 5 torikumi announcement is more than an hour late. No new kyujo announcements yet.

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Hakuho is gradually losing it, but there is no active rikishi who would be favored to defeat him on any given day, and there is no rikishi in the process of replacing him as a yokozuna. Kakuryu lacks Japanese citizenship, and the day he retires, he will kiss sumo and the kyokai goodbye. He is earning a great living, and, so far, there have been no serious calls for his retirement. He is putting in his time and going to the bank until something better comes along. With that said, it is extremely unlikely that either of them will survive to Hatsu 2021.

Sumojoann is our most agreeable player. Chishafuwaku is very disagreeable. Note: In the future, we will be changing the deadline time to 11:30 JST vice 5:00 JST. Since the change is forthcoming, we have decided to allow 3 late entries for this game. The table entries have been revised. The professor caught one of my typing errors. Revised again. Let's get this thing going!
