Last year at Haru KaioU faced Shoryu too. Morozashi attempt by Shoryu being blocked by KaioU. Maybe similar tactics today

Asa looks like he is shooting for "Mike Tyson special" grip. (In a state of confusion...)

Slow day on work today (must be April 1st having its deadly influence on my working focus), so I decided to make the best of it and squander my time in a pleasant manner. So, some more pictures join this thread. (Feeling guilty...)

Let us dedicate a moment to those less known rikishi - Wakanoyama, for example.

Wyama2.jpg

It can get hot during those summer jungyo...

Wyama1.jpg

Hm, this picture begs for a caption, but I can't think of any. (Scratching chin...)

Porcine Prince, the Next Generation, aka Ushiomaru.

Ushiomaru.jpg

Aww... (Eating...)

And somewhat out of place among these rikishi, but frequenting the same division currently - can you identify this scraggly and thin youth, who has yet to develop the musculature and allure of his present day looks?

Twaka_glasses.jpg

I never knew Takanowaka belonged to "glasses" club. (Neener, neener...)

Twaka_squint.jpg

Then again, seeing him squint like this... B-)

Hope you liked it! Sorry for the lack of Hakuho, but my supply of newer images is limited.

Edit: Did some googling on Hakuho, see the resulting pictures here!

Digged up some Hakuho pics, and completed the section with some more BW - today is a bleak, colourless day, and it shows in my pics as well. (Second prize...)

Hakuho!

Hakuho (middle) racing the yokozuna (in white) and (gaspe!) winning...

That historical multi-gaijin yusho several basho ago...

Asasekiryu, Kokkai, Hakuho, not-gaijin, Kotooshu

I always like to see pictures of current sekitori in their boyhood... Recognise him?

boy_kaiou.jpg

I think eyebrows and mouth are a dead giveaway, but still...

Heh, and he looks even better older. (Second prize...) (I am not worthy...)

Enjoy the pics...

I bet that is Tokitenku, not Hakuho. (You are going off-topic...)

I agree.

Whoops, blush blush. (Laughing...)

Wasn't sure, and too lazy to check once google didn't spit out immediate info. I figured I had 50-50 chance of getting it right. (Blinking...)

Thx for the correction. (You are going off-topic...)

I found a couple of links to pictures of Kotooshu and of keiko at Takasago beya.

I don't have the time and patience to upload each picture, so I'm just going to provide the links to each picture page...

First, a bunch of pictures of Kotooshu:

http://www.geocities.com/deyandenchev/myfiles/koto.html

Next, a visit to Takasago beya (at least that's where the guy says they went):

http://www.geocities.com/deyandenchev/myfiles/takasago.html

Enjoy.

This is a lookalike photo, who does little chap who's related to me look like in this photo? I took it last night and immediately saw the resemblance, can you pick the famous Rikishi?

Woo-hoo, nice pictures! (Sign of approval)

It is Takasago-beya, since it's Takasago oyakata lighting the cigarette and reading the papers while sitting only in his shorts. ;-) And 'Sekiryu signing the autographs...

And Osh © is so :-S

For me he looks a little bit like Takanohana

Edit: Oh I now see that Kashunowaka got there first. My browser often seems to get these multi-page threads a bit wrong.

;-) Yes I am glad I wasnt the only one who thought so my wife told me I was potty, you see I have this lookalike thing with sumo wrestlers. My wifes nephew looked like Chiyotaikai when he was a baby and I a know guy who is the spitting image of Musoyama. The lady who runs the Okonomiyaki stand in the local Dept store is dead ringer for Takanonami. I subconsciously try to find correlations with Sumo wrestlers for some reason.

Anyway my sons name is Rohan and I gave hima Shikona after his doppelganger Takanohana. He is Rohanohana :-S

He has potential too! he has amazing power in his tsuki and a killer grip showing promise for yotsu zumo.

And hes only 9 months old and already 10.5kg and 80 cm.
