    Sumo looking for some attention!

    Due to the MMA/NHB fad,Sumo is not what it used to be popularity wise! So it is looking for ways to regain some credibility in the public!

    Is it in the good direction? :confused:

    I would say that's a frightening direction.

    I watch the sumo matches on ESPN. Anybody else?

    I watch it when I'm in Japan. I'd really love to get to see the January Tournaments in Tokyo but my wife is not to keen on the Big Men strutting their stuff. :(

    Sumo tourney

    I saw a cool sumo turnament on ESPN. "The Moose" won. He weighs like 525 pounds. The other guys were all around 350. It got pretty aggresive, lots of slapping and Judo like tosses besides the fat vs fat pushing. If you were really drunk I bet it would be a great night out, either watching or competing. IN terms of entertainment I'd put it on par with Strongman competitions and a notch above Slamball. Again, some drinking implied

    There are 63 legal moves in sumo. And some how they all look like two giants slapping into oneanother .

    It's true! I enjoy watching sumo when ever I can catch it.

    He did quiet well in the last tourney I thought.

    But I agree he is getting close to retiring.
