Day 1 pics Hatsu 2016

Recommended Posts

Day 1 - 1st sell-out (10816 spectators) + the Imperial box occupied as well

the Imperial couple arrives for the 2nd half of makuuchi (I have no hope they'll ever come for the dohyo-iri - the youngest generation maybe)

he managed to dedicate a win to Tokitenku: he was his tsukebito for a while and had many butsukari-geiko lessons from him

Kakuryu doesn't often react to stuff, but when he does, he pulls some great faces. Old dude in the top right there is pretty shocked too!

Well they're not as young as they used to be.

Aminishiki taunts Kisenosato by playing him a dirge on his imaginary violin...

Kagayaki may be a good sekitori... but he's the best candidate for breast reduction surgery for sure. Even my wife says "kakkowarui!".

Are we really commenting on Kagayaki's boobs when Aoiyama is still around heaving his mammary saddlebags like some kind of flesh-pillow salesman?

I think Waketake was talking about the Emperor and his better half...............
