Mongolian special! No Asashoryu 'cause he'll feature in some future special. :-(

Tokitenku in his "makushita hopeful" days.

Tokitenku.jpg

It *is* Tenkuu, isn't it? My, these Mongolians all look alike. :-)

Kyokushuzan doing keiko and making faces.

keiko_shuzan.jpg

Kotonowaka facing us (more or less) in the backgorund. Can't ID the other sekitori...

Kyokutenho getting wrapped or unwrapped.

mawashi.jpg

Tenho and Shuzan demonstrating yummy Oguruma-beya chanko.

Mongol_chanko.jpg

Shuzan and his bride. Another shotgun wedding, it seems :-P

or a reception held a year or so after the actual wedding, as in

Asashoryu's case.

Same, but in Mongolian style.

Friday, time to kick back and anticipate the weekend... so today, it's Nothing special! (Applauding...) (admit it, you saw this coming...)

Unidentified sekitori trying out a rugby scrum (ah, when will Eurosport ever show rugby again...)

Akinoshima looking confused looks at us.

Scrum.jpg

Oguruma-beya lads playing football against someone at the time of Japan-Korea world cup

Tochiazuma looking like he needs to go to the bathroom *right now* but unable to. :-P

Ghi.jpg

Takanonami about to sneeze, accompanied by Tokitsuumi and Shimotori in the background.

Minatofuji enjoying an icecream while having his mage made

And something I really should put after each of my posts... The largest part of the images I post were scanned and sent to me by a Swedish lady of many shikonas, generous Ako. If you like what you see, send some of those good vibes in her direction... :-P

BAsho week, so picture posting is more lax... Asashoryu semi-special, the rest is more or less random.

Shoryu being all cool and yokozuna-like.

Shoryu_Yokozuna.jpg

Shoryu showing a lacking shock of yokozuna-like dignity while performing a funky-looking dance. Is it something Mongolian? No clue.

hinkaku.jpg

Shoryu with his wife and daughter on some occasion - yusho, judging from that huge cup?

shoryu_family.jpg

Baby has that slightly disgusted bored look that babies excel in. :-D

One time Shoryu's great rival, and looking *good* in this picture, Kotomitsuki.

Mickey.jpg

Iwakiyama the kinboshied in keiko with his heya's manager, ex-Dewaarashi.

Iwaki-keiko.jpg

Try as I might, I can't think of any relation with Asashoryu, so here's Hayateumi stretching. :-O

stretch.jpg

See you next week!

Someone mentioned Naruto boys? Well, be careful what you wish for...

It's Naruto special!

Eternal Sekiwake Wakanosato in business dress:

Wakanosato.jpg

Sato exchanging laughs with a retired yobidashi. Other yobidashi around?

Pic by an avid and close-by fan:

Sato&yobidashi.jpg

Naruto Waka-Taka share a tub. Taka doesn't loook that thrilled:

Wakanosato&Takanowaka5.jpg

Takanowaka trying to remember how he signs his tegata:

tegata2.jpg

Ah, yes: Tsuru in the background.

Sato looking dubious and yet giving the V sign while having hair done:

Hi_Sato.jpg

Who'd have thought these three were nyumaku in the same basho!

nyumaku.jpg

Kaiho, Toki, Sato. Nyumaku, of course, means "New makuuchi". ;-)

Yokozuna Wakanohana special (plus a cameo appearance by his yokozuna brother).

Waka taking his yokozuna-iri less than seriously. ;-)

Waka_iri.jpg

Certainly less seriously than his tsuyuharai Takawaka and tachimochi Azuma.

Another dohyo-iri, with Gojoro as tachimochi (imagine that).

Waka_iri2.jpg

Yet another, this time with Futagoyama-beya veterans:

Waka-iri.jpg

Takatoriki as tsuyuharai and Akinoshima as tachimochi.

Wakanohana at his (retirement?) all yokozuna dohyo-iri.

3yokozuna_iri.jpg

Ake is tachimochi, Musa tsuyuharai.

Wakanohana in his tsuna.

Tsuna.jpg

And finally, Taka poses with Ake and Musa.

Musashimaru's and Aogiyama's mage-cutting brought on a wave of nostalgia in me. Riding this wave, here are some images of retired rikishi I remember who used to be my favorites.

Once upon a time rikishi went to train (or something) in a military base. These pictures were taken as they passed by a saluting guard. Can you spot differences between yokozuna Akebono:

salute1.jpg

then-ozeki Musashimaru:

salute2.jpg

(Buyuuuuzan in tow)

and rank-and-filers Minatofuji and Aogiyama:

salute3.jpg

Kotoinazuma the balding (and fertile) after and during his mage-cutting ceremony (not much of a mage left for Sadogatake-oyakata to cut, is there?)

inazuma_intai.jpg

Higonoumi in his new oyakata role, looking good

higo-oya.jpg

My favorite rikishi *ever* shaking hands with the yokozuna as their yusho-paintings are ready to be raised to their rightful place among Kokugikan rafters

Kotonishiki.jpg

More next week... :-D

As long as this thread is still open... :-)

Keiko special!

Mitoizumi straining hard... or considering positive aspects of bondage. ;-)

tied.jpg

Takanoyama the Czech in his early days (no hair, you see) getting to train against a sekitori (white mawashi). Could it be Kotomitsuki? Doesn't look like one of Naruto boys, anyway.

Takayama_keiko.jpg

Kokonoe rikishi (I guess, that's Chiyotenzan in white) doing some spring keiko under blossoming cherries.

shiko.jpg

Higonoumi straining himself and an elastic band during jungyo.

Higo.jpg

Tosanoumi practicing that impressive keiko method of tsukebito carrying. Tsukebito looks as if he has found his life's calling. :-D

TsukebitoCarrying.jpg

Tochinowaka (remember him? he was probably the first rikishi to retire of those I knew and liked thanks to Eurosport...), current Kasugano oyakata, in butsukari-keiko.

Tochiwaka.jpg

BTW, Kinta, that Shimotori daimyo is really :-)

Understandable.... I can imagine worse jobs than being carried around by Tosanoumi :-) (Blushing...)

True. Like, carrying around Konishiki for example. :-)

Still wondering why Tosa looks so radiant in that pic...
