I am confused. Didn't people say Akebono had got leaner and meaner?
This basho surely didn't show that, so maybe I can believe this latest
version. What is Akebono's weight at the moment? How is he moving?
I'm glad this basho didn't go to a playoff. So now Wakanohana gets his
chance. Either way, he will be under a lot of pressure in the next
basho. Hope he is ready for that.
"That's the old ecological tale that explains humans' inability to fully
appreciate global warming. To wit: if you drop a frog in a pan of hot
water, it jumps out. If you drop it in a pan of cold water, then turn
the heat up slowly, you can roast it to death." -- Clive Thompson
