I had the distinct pleasure of chatting about sumo with Leslie and Laurie from Sumo Kaboom yesterday. The two of them have been running a sumo bingo game and thought we’d collaborate on a new Kachi-Koshi bingo. We hope you all will enjoy. Aside from bragging rights, there’s some of the Sumo Kaboom homemade fig jam in it for the winner!
Yesterday, I talked their ears off for a good long time and I think you’ll be able to hear some of it later this week (maybe Wednesday), so head over there and you can listen to me drone on until I forget what I’m talking about — or choose from any of their other 30 or so episodes. The Mariah Holmes episode is fascinating, in particular, and gives a glimpse into the amateur sport which we touched on briefly in our wide-ranging chat.

I’ve got my card and I’ll start filling it in starting this weekend when Shodai picks up his kachi-koshi. Sadly, it seems Asanoyama is nowhere to be found on my entry. Geez, I’ve really got the Kiss of Death, don’t I? Again, the rules are below:
