oh, thats sad news... Sad

Tokitenku, a dirty old man in his last years on the dohyo, but still... when you read the current reports, and you think about him... he had his own style, you could define it, you could sometimes predict what was coming, and still, he was so good, he was able to win with it often enough.

63 Bashos in Makuuchi... he was there when i watched sumo... rarely in the spotlight, but clearly one of the sumotori  that retired unforgotten...
