Asashoryu has this one in the bag. Today was the fourteenth of the fifteen-day tournament. As of today, Asashoryu has lost only 1 match, and Dejima and... someone else (Kotonowaka?) have lost 3. So even if he loses tomorrow, he's won the championship.

Today he beat Kotomitsuki. It's hard when he's up against Kotomitsuki, because Don and I always root for Koto. Why do we like Koto so much? He was born on the same day as Don -- April 11, 1976.

Don and I only got to see a few minutes of the ceremony for Asashoryu, because we were meeting the Fukauras for dinner in Okamoto.

We had Italian food with Shinichiro and his wife, Hiromi. I'd never met her before and wasn't sure what to expect, Shinichiro being so unique. (Shinichiro - "RARE!") She's pretty, smart, eloquent, well-dressed, polite... wow. They're the cutest couple ever.

A little camera-shy, though!
