    Sumo Illustrations

    But....the cartoons and the pastels were both drawn by the same person? Thanks! Angie aka Takanjisafari

    "Off With the Beard"

    Thank you for the very good laugh on this generally laughable subject. Too funny. (In a state of confusion...) I'll line up behind the aesthetic reason argument, though. There's just nothing sillier looking than that much beard on the bottom of a head that has a bun on top. Even John Belushi wouldn't go there (for those of you who remember John Belushi)(if that's anybody... :-D ) Angie

    Most Enjoyable Rikishi

    Well, there are so many! (Applauding...) Asashoryu, of course, especially when he goes into his gorilla routine before the bout. Tochiazuma, when he's on --- he just attacks like a pit bull. I like Kitazakura, too --- definitely a GREAT salt thrower, but also practices such nice, crisp sumo. Angie in Texas, US

    KONISHIKI in a movie

    Too funny! Love the picture! Sumojumping? Skisumo? Sumoski? Angie, all confused now, in Texas, US

    Sumo en Vogue?

    I don't often read "Vogue" magazine, and much less often than that do I see a sumo wrestler in it! Here is a picture of photographer Bruce Weber and the ever fashionable scion of chic, Kushinoryu. I kid you not. It's from "Vogue," the page where they introduce the contributors to the month's issue. Apparently being photographed with a rikishi establishes Japanese cred for this photographer, who is doing a piece on Yoko Ono (who lives in New York City.... :-S ) Angie in Texas, US

    Hey handsome!

    Mebbe, but in Asashoryu's case, I think it's because with very few exceptions, Mongolian men are hot. Angie in Texas, US

    Hey handsome!

    Oh, I beg to differ.....:) "Cutest post-defeat slouch: Roho" Nah...gotta be Takamisakari. He manages to make a face like a Japanese temple dog as well! Angie

    King Kong

    So for the terminally out-of-it among us, are the people with Asashoryu the cast of the movie "King Kong?" I think I recognize the skinny guy with the nose on the far left as an actor....duh.... Angie in Texas, US

    sumo manga

    Well, bummer --- they don't have any new copies, only used, and they will not send to the US. But thanks for letting us know about it, anyway, nomo! Angie in Texas, US
