Hatsu 2019 Preview

If there is a better way to ring in the new year than watching mostly naked men wrestle, we sure don’t know it! Will the Yokozuna take it? Will Takakeisho reach Ozeki? Will Goeido keep disappointing?! The Hatsu Basho is upon us, and it’s looking to be a good one! We take a sponsor break at 55:38 and can be reached on social media or dropping a line at 805-613-SUMO (7866)!

Kyushu 2018 Recap

What an exciting basho! Takakeisho clinches the Yusho and leaves Takayasu still searching for his first. We talk sumo, take a break for a wholesome breakfast cereal ad at 54:58, and then talk sumo some more. Reach us on social media or leave us a message at 805-613-SUMO (7866).

Due to some technical difficulties during the recording, you will notice there are a few audio hiccups throughout the episode. Luckily there aren’t too many and they don’t last long. We apologize for this — those responsible have been flogged.

Kyushu 2018 Midway

*Spoilers Through Day 8*

Takakeisho is in the lead with six literally hungry rikishi close behind. Will he pull it out or will Takayasu snag his first Yusho? We learn more about what Takanohana has been up to at 32:30 and then answer some twitter questions in our first ever Ask GSB segment. To ask your own question, you can find us on social media or give us a call at 805-613-SUMO (7866).
