Yeah, we're talking about women in sumo. Because they rock. **Eros Armstrong **is the heavyweight representative on the 2020 Women's U.S. National Sumo Team. She's athletic, talented, and driven to be the best. And, she wants to bring more women into the sport.

Eros speaks eloquentrly about soul combat, warrior spirit, and leading other women to the sport of sumo - either through sumo clinics like the one at the WINS tournament or by walking up to other women at the grocery story and telling them that they would be good in sumo.

Confused About Special Prizes? https://sumokaboom.fireside.fm/articles/episode-50-tochinoumi-confused-about-special-prizes Tue, 02 Feb 2021 11:00:00 -0600 sumokaboom@gmail.com daae3ead-20e2-4f32-a238-1b60d704bc0b Yokozuna Tochinoumi - who was he? And, are you confused about Special Prizes? We are too. We talk about Yokozuna Tochinoumi, who just passed, and learn who he was and what he was known for. Then, we jump into a discussion about the world of Special Prizes. Why are there sometimes a bunch of guys with the same Special Prize? And why are there sometimes NO winners of special awards? We were confused, so we set out to get to the bottom of it.

Along the way, we discuss silicone inserts, Burgess Meredith, beauty pageants, peaches and Barb. Ya know, as you do.

Quotes:
"Rise and shine for the best apples, that's what I always say."

"Another greatness of his is to be able to pound the peaches."

"I dont' know how to say this. I should have looked this up beforehand, but I didn't. It's the Gino sho or the Technique Prize." "TECH-NIQUE."

"I like the way you're bringing this home to beauty pageants."

Then, we cover news and the crazy first 3 days of January's basho, 2021. So many men are out due to covid concerns. And, the basho itself? Though it started out calmly, its been filled with surprises, broken teeth, and bloody noses. It's anyone's guess who is going to win this one.

This entire episode started witha simple question- what do professional wrestlers do over the holidyas?

It led us through conversation ranging from bintsuke, the hair wax/oil that wrestlers use in their hair, to the history of Christmas in Japan. We touch on Japanese winter illuminations, celebrations of light, traditional holiday foods, and the romantic night of Christmas eve. Oh yes, December 24th is a romantic holiday in Japan.

Also, we opened up the phone line this week to ask you about your favorite sumo related memory fof 2020.

This is your episode! We talk about the special prizes and what the winner takes home. Also, what it would take for Takakeisho to become a yokozuna? Can he do it? 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.

November basho- days 1 and 2. Somehow we manage to discuss Ryuden's laugh, juryo treats, cheerleading moves and more. It's a double thumbs up for Sumodo, the latest sumo documentary, and we talk about days 1 and 2 of the November basho. Gosh, we've missed these boys!

Episode 39 - Sumo Snack and Chat https://sumokaboom.fireside.fm/articles/episode-39-sumo-snack-and-chat Tue, 03 Nov 2020 17:00:00 -0600 sumokaboom@gmail.com 82cffd38-a451-4323-ba80-c0f7e660505e We followed our interests this week in a relaxed conversation about Akua, injuries, what it's like at a sumo tournament, blood type personalities, bento boxes, and a lot of laughter. A LOT of laughter. "Everything started in the Edo period."
"Takayasu is a type A, right?"
"What does my bento box look like?"
Why do they serve chicken at a sumo tournament?
Is BINGO happening again?

In this laid back chat, we discuss the newest wrestler to the highest rank of sumo, Akua- his background, interests, sumo style. We also share how we learn and remember wrestlers, because when you first start watching sumo, it's a lot of men to know.

We're bringing BINGO back! Expect to see updated cards soon.

Then we give you an aural experience of what it's like at a real sumo tournament, from the seating arrangements, sights and sounds you might hear to the food and drinks served. We dip into the world of blood type personalities, too.

There's a lot of laughter in this episode and a little bit of adult conversation about prophylactics, FYI.
