Drring drring..(Phones don't do dring dring anymore. Get with it, man..)

Hakuhou : "Yeth?"

Kakuryuu: "Hello boss. So, what do you have to say?"

H: "Listen, we're not young anymore, but we're still wily. Did you see how I avoided facing Teru? I lost, limped emphatically, made my way SLOWLY around the dohyo to the other side, taking care not to take the short-cut through the dohyo like everyone else ever, grimaced a lot, and limped out noticeably. I made it so that even Stevie Wonder would notice my injury.."

K: "So you faked it?"

H: "Hush, man, do you kiss your mother with that mouth? Of course I am injured. I just wanted it to be obvious so when I announce my kyujo people wouldn't start speculating.."

K: "But didn't you just point out how wily you are and used the word avoid?"

H: "Me? Avoid? Never! "

K: "Scroll up a bit maybe??"

H: "OK, OK, what are you calling me about during my mah-jong session?"

K: "I'm thinking of hanging it up. I'm having difficulties getting used to Michinoku beya and the Kiribayama kid won't let me be.. I'm too old for drastic changes!"

H "And I'm supposed to do what with that information?"

K: "Maybe you have some wily idea?"

H: "How about you hang it up? It's time. You should move to soccer, but maybe not, seeing as you kicked a 160 kilo guy standing right next to you and missed him totally.."

K: "Hey, that's not fair - he moved!"

H: "Let us summarize and say we are a wily pair. We both got some extra rest, I guess.."

K: "Speaking of guess, are you doing the GTB this basho?"

H: "I think rikishi cannot go out at night and play GTB because of the virus and the need for social distancing.."

K: "Oh, then Abi has probably entered already.. HAHAHAHAHA!!"

H: "HAHAHAHA!!

Good thing we're not rikishi, as we can play GTB as usual! GTB. Please play. Rules: Guess the Banzuke. Simple. You get two points for a bulls-eye and one point for just getting the rank right. You get no points for getting drunk in a bar and "not remembering anything" the next day, after your picture hits the tabloids. Tiebreakers - Most total guesses, then we check the banzuke backwards - getting the lower half right will be important.  The most correct guesses in the last ten places will win the tiebreaker. If still tied, we go up a ranking at a time like a penalty shootout. It's up to you to check if you are on the list of entries. It's going to be your fault if you don't notice that your entry went missing in the Internet void. No late entries will be expected or accepted.

Dear Mr Golden Huevos, Is it safe to assume Abi must be listed on the future banzukes even though he is suspended?

Of course. He is a member of the sumo world. But I didn't tell you that..

A friendly reminder- 10 days to go till the deadline.  Also, the site has a habit of going down on the last day, so please give yourselves enough safety time. It's not like you have to wait for any results. Just enter, this weekend even. Who knows where we will be next week.

Worked for me the second time.  Luckily, 1) it doesn't take long to fill out once you have your list ready (remember to select None for all ranks you don't use), and 2) my covid work from home version of my job has a useful and oft-used "feature" that for some reason also works on alternate attempts, so I'm used to this.  :)

That was a nightmare. Everyone was 10-5 or 4-11 FFS! I could easily go 4-11 myself here. Lottery!

To make things even worse, in the 21-21: Rule or No Rule thread they are talking about S2W and K2W.

I may be an O'fer on this GTB.

Won't happen. It's S2E. No K2W.

I hope..

I'm going to let it ride, "fixing" it probably won't help.

As Pandaazuma said about there being so many double digit winners and losers this basho.

The middle of my banzuke is lost anyway  (Scratchingchin...)

Didn’t get an email confirmation after I submitted, but am on the submitted entry list. Did anyone else get that?

Happens. What’s important is that you’re on the list.

You would have, but as you wrote "spellling" with three L's your wish cannot be granted.

Welll  spotted but that was due to an over responsive  'send' key.
