I wanted to talk a little bit about sumo, but I couldn't find a good thread for it and figured it might not be that popular by itself, so consider this a catch-all thread for sports that can't quite carry a thread on their own, yet.

So, anyway, what got me wanting to talk about sumo is that a young man from Texas just entered the maezumo (newcomer tournament that will determine initial rank). His name is Ichiro Young but will take the sumo name Wakaichiro which I'm told means young (person) ichiro. I wish this guy a long and successful professional career!

There was a Canadian sumo wrestler who is looking to break into the professional ranks by the name of Brodi Henderson. But it looks like a shoulder injury did him in. :(
