Endou was in the ring, but Abi couldn't believe it, I guess.

BTW, I expected you to get my "half-fast" reference, but in these troubled times ... (Sigh...)

It took me awhile, but in the end, I got it..

Numbers, more numbers

Everything is now numbers

Where are the humans?

 

I'm not a number

I am a human being

(Cheap philosophy)

Highlight videos

Informational postings

Great sumo savvy

 

If number it be,

Good friend Kintamayama:

Please take number one

Translation failure:

"Ryu," I surmise, means 'nothing'

"Kaku" -- to kick at?

Are you sure he didn't mean this ran?

I thought he might have been making an obscure reference to the 1985 Kurosawa movie, too, but maybe not.

(Not a Haiku by any means, but imagine Ishiura and Enho bringing to the dohyo for the final match a few more Miyagino minstrels and singing these lyrics from Monty Python and the Holy Grail...)

 

Hakuho, the Greatest

in sumo Of All Time

He was not afraid to fall

Brave Yokozuna!

He was not afraid to lose or fall down in nasty ways

All hail, brave Yokozuna!

 

He was not in the least bit scared to land on his taped-up toes

Nor to crush a fan or two, or land on the judges

He was not at all afraid to be hurt in nasty ways

Old - but brave Yokozuna!

 

His head banged into the water jug

His legs giv’n out and his elbow smashed

His forehead bruised on a zabuton

His mawashi....

 

(Hakuho raises a hand, music stops): I think maybe that’s enough music for now lads, I have a match against Endo to win.

 

(Match over, Hakuho leaves with musicians behind, shaking his head and denying the allegations in the closing lyrics angrily:)

 

Yokozuna jumped away

Bravely leapt away away

When danger reared its ugly head, he jumped and down the aisle he fled

He ran away, he buggered off, he felt the floor was not so soft

We waited for his brave return to accept the kensho and bow and turn

But instead of training’s pure tuck and roll, he leapt to reap the safest goal

Bravely, bravely, still un-beat, avoiding injury’s defeat, he ran away brave Yokozuna!

While everyone slept

Abi was out partying

Now he's out, for good.

So he's out, for now..

 

Edited for obvious reasons..

Guess The Banzuke:

Is anyone better than

pollsters in ‘16?

 

My entry is in

I wait, expecting the worst

Way off, I predict

 

There must be a way

Bribing an elder, perhaps?

Would that be allowed?

Wide as Kanto plain,

Bleak as the Sea of Okhotsk,
