Who'da thunk it?
This tourney has been the most exciting and also the oddest in recent memory. Currently vying for the cup are Hakuho AKA the Mighty Munkhbat and Miyabiyama at 13-1 each. WTF? Once Asa dropped out I figured Hakuho was a shoo-in. I thought he might get some competition from Koto'oushuu or maybe Chiyotaikai (which he did until recently) but Miyabiyama? True, he is a former Ozeki, but I'll have to admit it came as a bit of a surprise. And let's not forget Balto; he's out of it now with 11-3, but for his first go in makunouchi that's pretty darn impressive.
I can't wait 'til tomorrow's match; it's Hakuho vs. Balto and Miyabiyama vs. Asasekiryuu, with hopefully a sudden death play-off to cap it all. Truth be told I still expect Hakuho to win (take a peep at the above photo from day 12 if you want an example of his talent), but who knows, good old Miyabiyama might just pull an upset out of his arse after all!
