Sumo Kaboom

Leslie and Laurie Collins, Texan sisters, comedians, and diehard sumo fans, talk about all things sumo.

Episode 43: Takakeisho and All the Prizes

After Takakeisho won the November basho, what did he take home with him? That huge trophy? Well, no. But, he did take home a small replica of that trophy. And lots more. Listen to find out what he won.

Also, Leslie talks about the bow, arrows, and bow string that are handed out in the last 3 matches of the tournament along with special prizes.

We also discuss whether Takakeisho has what it takes to become a yokozuna.

As always, we do our best to research what we're talking about. Here are our sources for this week.
