Tochiazuma at the morning press conference, the usual "I did my own Sumo and thank you everyone for your support when I was down and out" routine:

"The joijin ranks are occupied by many foreigners, so we Japanese have to gambarize!", he added. "I will try to seriously go for the tsuna!"

What's the point in a such a modern cooking device if all of the fat just runs out of the meal. What a waist. (Neener, neener...)

Was this the first time Asa got this Award? It was on TV Japan News and I just caught the tail-end of it and thought I saw "2 years" in the headline. Just wondering... (Bye, bye...)

Interestingly enough, no Japanese in Japan. The only Japanese on the picture is doing his stuff in the U.S.A....

Well, in the picture on the right, the guy on the far right is G-Osaka soccer team's coach, whom I neglected to mention since I have no idea what his name is. This notwithstanding, he is definitely Japanese.

What (Bye, bye...) Is Osh standing on his knees? (Being unsure...)

The smiles all around and everyone looking at Osh suggest that he is clowning around and trying not to look taller than the Yokozuna..

I remember waking up and seeing that on the morning news. It made me far happier than a few seconds of film ever should...

(Yusho winner...) Tochiazuma!! These sumo icons are great.

It seems that Tochiazuma has got a Thinkpad X.

I've got a Thinkpad T.

So I win.

(Applauding...)
