Sumo!

Today was Sumo day for us. We get the company tickets one day of every Tokyo tournament. This means we go to sumo three times each year. It was a fairly calm uneventful day. It is only the second day of the 15 day event so things could get better. It seems that since Asashoryu retired some of the wrestlers have become a little vicious. Baruto has become a favorite among the fans. With the sport down one yokozuna (the highest rank in sumo) I believe the others are trying to get to the top in a hurry. Hakuho is the lone yokozuna.

Here are some photos from today:

    How exciting! Cody loves all the excitement of this show on TV called Ultimate Fighter. It is mixed Martial Arts. I showed him your post and he was very excited. He says that he thinks that would be “So cool to watch.”
    I love that these guys weigh hundreds and hundreds of pounds and they look more flexible then me. Ha ha!
