Well, we’re back to the Hatsu basho. This is the unofficial one year anniversary of Sumo & Stogies. As you can see in our Honbasho reports menu bar, our online reports started exactly 1 year ago today. What will 2011 bring to sumo. Will we see a “Japanese hope” rise to the challenge and take the faltering Kaio’s place as Ozeki? Or will the competition be squashed by younger foreign rikishi? Will Hakuho go on unchalleneged and continue to break records? Taking both the #1 and #3 spot on the most consecutive wins list. Will it be Zensho zenyusho (a feat never before accomplished in the 6 tournament ear)? Or have the sanyaku and lower ranked rikishi located the chinks in the Khan’s seemingly indestructable armor?
