Nagoya basho might be cancelled

Recommended Posts

The Kyokai have repeatedly stated that the bashos would not resume until the yaocho investigations have concluded. Those investigations include the thorough examination of the cell phones of rikishi under suspicion.

For domestically made cell phones, the process is said to take one to two months. But for the cell phones by foreign makers, the gathering of evidence is said to require five to six months.

Five months from today would put us in the middle of July, so the papers have now started talking about the very real possibility that the Nagoya basho will be cancelled as well.

As the investigation appears to be at an end, NHK has announced that they will televise the upcoming Nagoya Basho, provided that it is held as a true "Hon Basho"

Nagoya basho will be held as usual, it has been announced today . "As all conditions for returning to basho normality seem to have been met, there is no reason to act otherwise," was the rijikai's decision today.

It's pretty much formal now-the Basho is on. Hanaregoma rijicho went to visit the Education etc. Ministry today to report the latest. The minister gave him the green light. "You should best get on with it for the sake of the fans. You should manage with a sense of tension!!" said the Minister.

Simple spelling mistake...

They're going to exhume a former Vice President. The last word should read, "Agnew".

(Gallows humour....)

That, or they're going to be importing wildebeests...

"The rikishi are going to start a Gnu."

(Animal humour.)
