Following Sumo

March 13, 2010

As if  I don’t have enough to do already, I’m covering the Spring Sumo Tournament on mahalo. The tournament begins tonight at around midnight my time, and goes on for fifteen straight days.

With the enforced retirement of superstar Asashoryu, it will be a quick march to the coronation of Hakuho unless Harumafuji, Kotooshu and Baruto can pick up their game. I expect that they will and I’m looking forward to this being a fascinating basho.
