Sumo Kaboom

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

Episode 49: January Basho Days 11-15

What a basho!

We break down highlight matches from days 11 - 15 and talk about concussions, the beauty of slo mo replays and just much we would such at judging. Plus we argue about kimarite pronunciation! It's a real treat.

Congratulations to our special prize winners and yusho winner. We loved watching you!
