And you will also be able to say with confidence why they throw salt into the ring before a bout....
And you will find yourself talking about it with others....

THAT'S how you know you're really a fan!

My man, Musashimaru is not only a Yokuzuna now (I always knew he would get there), but he just won the last tournament. Yay!!!!

No word on the argentine jewish fellow that was rising in the juryo ranks a few yrs back. He seems to have disappeared.

I guess you can chalk another one up for the man known in some circles as "The Godfather" of Sumo. I can think of nothing more satisfying than the big M tossing Takanohana for a loop.
Also, I don't know about the Argentine, but i am friends with a couple of Mongolians you might want to keep an eye on. Asashoryu, in Juryo, and Dashinyam, who will wrestle his first basho in January, are both tough dudes.
Here's looking toward January!

Hoo yah. I wish your friends good luck.

I am going to head over to the Nihon Sumo Kyokai right now to see if I can find their official photos.
