They really think Hakuho's belly is that big of a draw, eh? This is classic. If I can find one in Fukuoka that I can snag, I'll frame it when I get home!

That's Harumafuji's tsuna, isn't it?

Isn't it usually the winner of the previous basho?

But they don't show him in full after last basho's disaster - it doesn't look good when the poster boy isn't at the basho and kyujo from the start: next basho might be his turn to rest.

Somehow I'm certain you are correct. Well, if I get a chance, I'll filch one of Harumafuji then. I have tickets for Nov. 14th!

If the smooth chest doesn't convince you it is Hakuho...i don't think he lends his kesho mawashi to Harumafuji.

The winner will normally grace the cover of the succeeding Basho in-house magazine/brochure.

The posters can be anyone.

So, is there consensus? Was my first guess of Hakuho correct? Embarrassing to actually recognize Hakuho's belly at a glance.

The things we'll resort to discussing between bashos...
