Sumo


I love this picture of Akebono (retired American Yokozuna) helping Asashoryu do the dohyo-iri in proper form.

If you haven't been following sumo, Asashoryu was just promoted to the top rank of Yokozuna. He is only 22 and his Sumo debut was in 1999. He is fucking cool.

(By the way, in the New Years Basho, five of the six divisions were won by foreigners. Asashoryu is from Mongolia.)
