This summer sumo break has featured some fantastic jungyo coverage from Herouth, as the rikishi have traveled northern Japan. But the day that sumo fans have been anticipating with delight is now just hours away – the publication of the September ranking sheet – the Aki Banzuke!
The team here at Tachiai are as giddy as toddler on Christmas Eve, but with cleaner undergarments. We will bring you the banzuke news as soon as its posted (Sunday afternoon US time), but the podcast may wait until next weekend. The Aki basho begins two weeks from right about now.
