The end of an era in Sumo

Takanohana RETIRED today. *sniff* He showed up to do that little dance for the last time, but didn't grapple. There's only one Yokozuna now, Musashimaru, and he's absent while he's recovering from hand surgery or something.

And Asashoryu LOST! to Kaiho! That ties him with Dejima for the lead, with one loss each.

Don just came home with a gorgeous Sumo calendar given to him by a student's mother.
