May Basho Days 4 - 10

2022-05-1854:50

We cover the sumo, "underperforming ozeki," whether we love or hate the henka, the "lobster claw technique," British accents, crumpets, shortbread and Spencer's. Ya know, our normal sumo commentary. We have NO idea how this is going to shake out. All bets are off the table.

May Basho Days 1-3

May Basho Days 1-3

2022-05-1155:40

Funny fights. Surprising fights. Amazing fights. This basho already has it all, and it's only day 3. We break down our favorite moments and wonder about gyoji training, training for head butting, and why it will NEVER get old watching a small wrestler take down a much larger one. Sometimes we get technical, but most of the time, we are just two fans watching this cool sport and loving what we see.

There's a little something for everyone in this episode. Confusing sumo kimarite terms. Gyoji outfits. Would-you-rather. How much time do you spend researching? Do you talk sumo away from the podcast? Do you believe in ghosts? What job would you want as a retired rikishi? And so much more.

Oof. Sumo elders. We spent a week trying to understand the world of sumo elders, and we didn't get very far. It's a maze of information, changing rules, and mystery name changes.

A rambling discussion on days 4-10 of the January 2022 basho. What is Hakuho most worried about these days? (It's not what you think) Which large man is moving with surprising speed and agility? (Mr. Sumo) Which small man is keeping us entertained? (Ura) How are we, 2 non-wrestlers, describing the best throw downs? (with underwear and submarines) Apologies, we get a little potty-mouthed in this episode, too.
