  1. Everyone’s favourite reporter Raja Pradhan is getting into the ring with the Jan champion! Don’t miss it!

    • Watching Grand Sumo highlights and live broadcasts
      is such a joy. The contestants show true sportsmanship, gratitude, & honor. U.S. sports court take a page from their manuals for the youngsters who watch the games. Personally the broadcasts have educated me about Japanese culture and history. Broadcasters appear to enjoy their roles as educators to the audience.
      These past 3 yrs truly have made of me. My schedule is adjusted for viewing. Raja Prodham has become a particular personal favorite announcer.
      Thank you for your broadcasts.

  2. Terutsuyoshi (hope I spelled that right) gets a shout out in the preview. Very informative, I thought.
