Basho basho basho basho basho


I had a realization this morning that I'd really like to see Ichinojo become an ozeki before he retires I hope he continues to do well in the next couple tournaments.

Aw hell yeah :D

Pulling for wakatakakage as always, hoping he can do slightly better than September and make komusubi again

Praying for terunofuji’s knees to hold up too

love the November basho starting each night at 11pm pst instead of 12 (because of daylight savings, I guess?)

Makes watching weekdays live actually possible.

my usual feed:



another aggro start from chiyonokuni. real weak sauce from terutsuyoshi there, they always show his flashy rice throw and then he goes out like that.

chiyoshoma, ura, horshoryu all coming out with quick throws. endo/takayasu was fun, i guess healthy takayasu is a good add for losing tochinoshin for the basho.

wakatakakage drawing takakeisho is a tough first bout but waka is maegashira 1 now so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ that must be how it goes.

Hakuho becoming the newest sumo stable leader has put him on the bottom rung of duties those guys have for tournaments and whatnot. I read that the topknot cutting retirement ceremonies were backed up a lot during covid but they have begun again recently so who knows when that'll happen for him. I think there was one wrestler who had to wait a year or more.

Day2 wow! Bunch of crazy shit today just posting the whole thing

really fun day of matches. love how hard daiesho is going at teru.

unclear on why they didn't call a mono-ii on tamawashi/horshoryu.

Yeah total mystery why they played it out like that; like any situation I can think of in the last year that went similarly was at the very least debated over for a couple minutes. If anything he should have been declared the winner if they didn't want to review it.

Day 3
Not the most exciting day of sumo.
I appreciated terunofuji's expression of ennui after his match :)

takafuji/endo was fun but only a few other real fun matches - Mitakeumi resisting Daiesho was good for me even tho I'm kinda in Daiesho's camp rn. love Takakeisho just dismissing Kiribayama. idk if i like his easy affect more than Teru's ennui today.

i guess this is basho #4 for me and I"m getting a better feel for these wrestlers.

I really like Terunofuji's ring presence. Always looks disappointed or annoyed at the other rikishi.

Ura has been fighting well but seems really cautious at the tachiai, setting further back than the other rikishi, I forget if he was hurt during the last basho but remember him fighting well then too. idk Tobi is wily and fun and he's been fighting somewhat more straightforward?

I think if you can hold your head between your opponents knees long enough they are obliged to fall over in shame I do this all the time

pretty fun matches in day 5

lol'd at this

Image

Terutsiyoshi/Aoyama was a good match, both riskishi totally gassed at the end. followed by Tobi just hopping out of the way for the win. good technique from Waka against Mitakeumi. nice finale with Teru/Takanosho.
