Just to give readers early notice, we will be live-blogging senshuraku overnight Saturday into Sunday. We will have friends of the blog live in the Kokugikan, plus team coverage from around the globe tuned in to video coverage. We expect Prime Minister Abe, US President Trump, and possibly His Serene Highness Emperor Naruhito to be in attendance.
As a reminder, we may close comments on some posts, in an attempt to keep political commentary out of our sumo coverage. Frankly I think our current Natsu story lines (which lksumo covers with excellent posts) are far more compelling than any governmental nonsense. So let’s just ignore the elected people, and focus on which one of these guys will take the cup, and if Tochinoshin can find a way to get his 10th win.
