Wrestlers_Chicago_1907.jpg

Can't remember this picture having been introduced yet here. Found it at Wikipedia at:

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Image:Wr...hicago_1907.jpg

It is a picture of the rikishi that visited US in 1907. Yokozuna Hitachiyama is the biggest one, 4th from the right.

I don't usually have a lot to share on here, but I thought I would share this picture. I took it on Monday during keiko at the Sadogatake-beya. Most of my pictures didn't turn out well, but there is just something I really like about this picture.

Is that Osh-Kotoshougiku?

by the way thats you in the avatar i persume? which heya were you in and.....umm...why were you wearing pants (jeans?) on the dohyo (In a state of confusion...)

That is me in my avatar. The picture was taken at the Sumo Fan Appreciation Day back in December at the Kokugikan. I wasn't going to wrestle at first but then they said I didn't have to wear a mawashi. It would not be a pretty site if I wore one. BTW that was Shibuya I was against. Here is the full picture:

Is that Osh-Kotoshougiku?

Correct. Osh on the right and Giku on the left.

Were you able to move Shibuya any? You are only a little bit smaller than him :-)

I did move him. Let me rephrase that. He LET me move him. I weigh a little over 100lbs. I can move people that are around 190lbs to 220lbs. But 370lbs is a little too much for me. (No, no, no...) It was all in fun though. He could have tossed me around like nothing if he wanted too.

I have so enjoyed the pictures! The one of Kotoryu on the bike --- he doesn't look too confident, does he? Perhaps he should have tried a Japanese motorcycle...<g>

Hi,

I'm not sure this is the right place to post it, but I'm sure all sumo fans will

love these links.

I use to (I guess most of You too) to sumosurf a lot during bashos. Today I

came across a webpage with great really HIGH quality sumo pics. Including

Asashoryu down to guys like Takanoyama. Pics of the skinny fellow from

pilznerland are just too good. Real piece of art. Enjoy (Yucky...)

sincerely eciq

I have a lot of pictures of Baruto, most from surfing the Estonian Newspaper Postimees http://www.postimees.ee

If anyone's interested, send a PM, and I will send a bunch!

And as soon as I figure out HOW I will post one of those pictures here (Censored)

That will be great, as my Estonian is a little rusty, and I couldn't find anything on sumo at that link. good to see that Tom Cruise was covered, though. :-P

Wow. What a samuraish photo... I keep seeing a sword at Oshu's belt, although I know there isn't one...
