Kisenosato continues to drive people crazy. Having two losses, both to rank and filers, he does this:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KU2il-SLu3c

Edit: Day 11, Kisenosato does it again! Can an ozeki be considered a spoiler?: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U8LsMgS7j-Y

Edit: part 2, Kisenosato, yokozuna killer:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CknG9WAclzg

We now have Kakuryu with one loss, and three guys, Harumafuji, Kisenosato, and Ishiura with two losses. Figuring out who could win this thing is like trying to figure out the NFL playoffs. Nut

First Hakuho vs. Harumafuji:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E8V2mnWocRo

Then Goeido vs. Kakuryu (good thing there isn't a 5 yard penalty for false starts, these guys would have ended up in the parking lot):https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xlxW7Qw6BTg

Round the turn and headed for home, here's the leaderboard after day 8:

O1e Kisenosato 8 - 0

Y2e Hakuho 7 - 1

M10e Takanoiwa 7 - 1

M10w Sokokurai 7 - 1

M3w Ikioi 6 - 2

M5e Takekaze 6 - 2

M8e Hokutofuji 6 - 2

M13w Ichinojo 6 - 2

M15w Sadanoumi 6 - 2

The odd thing so far is maegashira 2 Arawashi. He's at 2-6 and his only two wins are against the two yokozuna, Kakuryu (5-3) and Hakuho.

Also, Harumafuji had to pull out after day 6 with a pulled hamstring.

After day 11:

O1e Kisenosato 10 - 1

Y2e Hakuho 9 - 2

M10e Takanoiwa 9 - 2

M10w Sokokurai 9 - 2

M13w Ichinojo 9 - 2

Kakuryu had to pull out after day 10 with an injury. Should Kisenosato win it, hardly a sure thing with Hakuho only one behind, I wonder if people will say, "Yeah, but two Yokozuna were out."

And Hakuho reminds everyone why he is Yokozuna:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xIzvR0SG3KY

Kisenosato clinched his first championship on day 14, but still had Hakuho on day 15:

Don't like how they're talking about making Kisenosato a Yokozuna after just one championship. With Kotoshogiku's demotion that would make twice as many Yokozuna as Ozeki. It should be the other way around.

Japan is happy, the JSA is happy, and Konishiki is reminded once again of how he got screwed out of yokozuna promotion over 20 years ago (38 wins and two yusho over a three-basho span versus Kisenosato's 36 wins and one yusho over his last three basho)

^ Thanks for posting. Kind of reminds me of back in the mid-1980's, Randy Bass of the Hanshin Tigers got to within one of Sadaharu Oh's single season home run record with 4 or 5 games to go. He didn't see a pitch within a foot of the strike zone the rest of the season.

Leaderboard after day 5:

Y2w Kisenosato 5 - 0

O1w Terunofuji 5 - 0

S1w Takayasu 5 - 0

M3w Takarafuji 5 - 0

M10w Tochiozan 5 - 0

Y1w Kakuryu 4 - 1

M7w Chiyoshoma 4 - 1

But the big news is Hakuho dropping out again still having problems with his toe:

"Mongolian grand champion Hakuho on Thursday pulled out of the Spring Grand Sumo Tournament due to injuries to his right toe and right thigh.

Hakuho sustained a big toe sprain and thigh muscle injury that will require three weeks of medical treatment, his stablemaster Miyagino said. His withdrawal comes a day after he crashed to his second loss on the fourth day of the 15-day meet at Edion Arena Osaka.

The 32-year-old Hakuho, the most successful wrestler in sumo history with 37 career titles, injured his thigh and toe in Wednesday's bout against top-ranked maegashira Ikioi.

The yokozuna had had surgery on his right toe to remove bone spurs after skipping the entire Autumn meet last September.

"He wasn't in good spirits and there was something strange about his sumo since he lost on the first day. He'll just have to start all over again," said Miyagino.

Hakuho's withdrawal is his first since missing the Autumn tournament last year and fifth overall. He forfeits Thursday's scheduled bout against komusubi Mitakeumi."

Leaderboard after day 8:

Y2w Kisenosato 8 - 0

S1w Takayasu 8 - 0

O1w Terunofuji 7 - 1

M10w Tochiozan 7 - 1

Y1w Kakuryu 6 - 2

Y2e Harumafuji 6 - 2

S2e Kotoshogiku 6 - 2

M6e Chiyonokuni 6 - 2

M7w Chiyoshoma 6 - 2

M15w Tokushoryu 6-2

Kisenosato and Takayasu are out of the same stable so they won't meet unless we get to day 15 and they're tied. Biggest surprise to me is Terunofuji with just one loss. I guess being kadoban can be a good motivator.

Going into the weekend and it's now a two man basho as Harumafuji handed Kisenosato his first loss:

Y2w Kisenosato 12 - 1

O1w Terunofuji 12 - 1

Y2e Harumafuji 10 - 3

S1w Takayasu 10 - 3

M10w Tochiozan 10 - 3

Here's the video of the Harumafuji/Kisenosato match, doesn't look good:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f9UBhJ-7N2g
