jreid He let them win - that's awesome. I remember watching a documentary about sumo on Discovery, and for some reason all the wrestlers seemed like really humble, cool guys.
jreid Actually here's the doc if you're interested - great insight into the surprisingly fascinating world of Sumo:
takewithfood It's too bad that most of the western world dismisses sumo as a bunch of fat guys pushing each other around. I didn't know anything either, until I caught some of these documentaries - now I wish they aired it on TV over here. I think I could get into it.
oddeye People that dismiss a sport featuring men able to withstand charges from, and even lift, other men that weigh in excess of 400lbs as "just two fat guys in diapers" are fucking ignorant fucks and I wish to piss in their eye sockets.
sosage I will not put up with people unironically posting wrestling videos.
Reefer Fez I've been to one of these exhibition tours before, and met a bunch of the rikishi. They are all really nice guys. And seeing this live is a hoot.
