    It seems that Tochiazuma has got a Thinkpad X. I've got a Thinkpad T. So I win. (Applauding...)

    Day 1 Henka Sightings

    Nothing done by Kyokushuzan can be considered "sin".

    World's Greatest Athlete 2005

    Achievement-wise, he is. He didn't lose the final to Nalbandian, that's for sure. Athletes I've seen nominated for best of the year include Federer, Armstrong, Isinbaeva, some others. Among these only Isinbaeva has shown such domination of her sport (Women's pole vault, for those who don't know) as Asashoryu did in sumo this year.

    Zabuton !

    Fine. Asashoryu did an henka against Chiyotaikai in 2003 and he did a semi-henka against Kyokushuzan last time they met. Let's deny his right for yusho until the end of time.

    Kotooshu won

    Tumppi - I didn't see your question. I was talking about the pages on NSK's site that get updated with latest results as the matches progress.

    How, pray tell?

    Eh. Managed to secure his favorite grip once and already a formidable foe? I'd wait a bit.

    That's another very legitimate (although, in my opinion, very stupid) way to see the situation. Why I think it's very stupid? Because I (apparently, as most others) don't think that one-hit-wonders have no right for their moments of glory. A yusho is the result of one's outstanding performance throughout a single basho, no more, no less. There is no rule that says that to be written in the history books as a yusho winner one needs to be posting top results constantly.
  9. Indeed. Miyabiyama is hideously hard to topple, when he seems determined. His problem (if he even sees that as a problem) is his tendency to fall down when nobody seems to be touching him.

    I absolutely understand you. The problem with SumoNow's reports is that, while Ken tries to make it as unbiased as possible, is still very selective. Some bouts he doesn't report at all, others with just a sentence. I forgot how Kintaro shapes up his reports, cause I haven't read through the mailing list for a while, but I assume that it would also suffer from the human touch. The thing with me is that I care about results first, story later. So I first look at who beat whom, and then, if I cannot find the movies, I read SumoNow. And then I read SumoTalk just to see which new levels of bias and what new crazy suggestions those guys can come up with. (In a state of confusion...)

    I assume you haven't seen this then. How come? Were you from some reason unable to watch that particular day of that particular basho or does "all the years" means "the entire year" in your tongue?

    How about just going to the NSK site and "scrolling slowly"? That's what I do whenever I cannot watch the stream or follow the live text updates.

    Kotonowaka Intai

    Agree, but it is rather unusual that you were fighting against your oyakata on the dohyo and you kicked his ass. I mean they are from the same generation of rikishi (because of Kotonowaka long-standing career, I am not talking about age) Due to the heya rule, no one of the current Sadogatake rikishi has ever fought Kotonowaka on the dohyo,

    Yes, I'm sure that is the exact reason why Chiyotaikai doesn't deserve the yusho, because no other yusho winner in history ever had to resort to henka to win his yusho. (Weeping...)
