kotooshu banzai

Another envelope from the calendar. This one shows Kotooshu, the tall, dishy Bulgarian ozeki, at a practice session at his stable. In May, Kotooshu won a grand championship, the first ever by a European sumo wrestler. If he can do it again at Nagoya, he'll make yokozuna. Go, Kotooshu! The guy is seriously yummy.

The Nagoya tournament starts today and I've been making envelopes from a big (what else) sumo calendar sent by a Tokyo friend. These pudgy fellows look like dolls.
