  1. Basho Talk Kyushu 2017 (SPOILERS)

    This basho felt non-competitive in the sense that so many rikishi was kyujo, and when you have the greatest rikishi ever present, the result pretty is pretty much a given. I still follow the lower divisions of course, and ozumo is such a great sport that I'll never be bored with it. But, thing is: I first got into ozumo back in the Eurosport days. My first real memory of watching ozumo on TV, was when Takatoriki got his yusho. It felt like lots of rikishi had a possibility of taking the yusho back then. I was probably wrong, but that's how I felt. Fast forward a few years, and having forgotten about ozumo for some years, I got back into it when my internet access became better. I learned that all the top rikishi I had known were gone, and there was a new sheriff in town: Asashoryu. Since then, Asashoryu, Hakuho and Harumafuji has pretty much ruled over ozumo. And it felt good back in wacky Aki, which was a real open basho where it felt like anything could happen. This basho just felt predecided in a way. I know I'm whingeing, but that is how I feel. Hakuho is the greatest rikishi of all time, but I'll be glad when he quits to be perfectly honest.

    Boring basho, predictable outcome.
  3. Would not surprise me if this is a correct guess Kinta. Hakuho doesn’t just forget proper manners for a Yokozuna after 39 yusho...
