The video edition of our discussion on the Natsu banzuke. Will we get to see sumo this May?
Segment 1 – Sumo news and the state of emergency in Japan surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. With rikishi from Takadagawa sick, and their oyakata in the hospital, we fear that the May 6th decision from the NSK will be to cancel the tournament. But even if they don’t, none of the rikishi are conducting practice matches. Would it be possible to even get the talent ready for a full on tournament just 3½ weeks from now?
Join us for 45 minutes of raging sumo fandom, and a whole swarm of mistakes (mostly by Bruce) in our discussion of a basho that may never happen.
