Recommended Posts

From yesterday-three Yokozunae- Akinomaki already published it in the Amasumo thread, but I fear many, like me, don't really follow amasumo, so.. If this is too much, please delete this thread, mods..

It has been said a lot, but it bears repeatung: Araiso Oyakata looks very happy in almost all his Media appearances since retiring. It was heartbreaking seeing the desperation and tension in almost all his bouts post-injury in the final two years as Kisenosato. He seems to be at peace with himself, his path and his current situation, and this makes me very happy. 

Loving  the photo.

I was in doubt what to do with all these not-amateur pics from this amateur sumo event, the Hakuho cup today

Critics will (rightly) point out again that this is a Hakuho Shouw rather than an amateur sumo event. - But it's also a(n-ex) sekitori show

more from the show part (the pure amateur pics will only appear in the Hakuho cup thread)

Hakuho does so much for the sport and it’s promotion. I sometimes must endure his detractors slagging him for whatever reasons (these armchair sumotori): he’s not a proper Yokozuna, too arrogant, blah blah blah. Whatever. Watching the Hakuho Cup, one is struck by the fact that it basically turns into a marathon autograph signing/photo session for the Champ as he is almost constantly besieged by fans eager to meet him. He turns no one away, even though it must be exhausting for him. He personally signs probably more than 500 autographs that day, each one of which becomes a young person’s treasured possession. He is great Champion not only based on his stats, but because he is so friendly and kind to fans, so generous with his time, and cares about the longevity of the sport’s popularity.

I concur, but I also really love this one, approaching religious, in both composition and spirit, IMO:
