I'm a casual fan of sumo. I do read the English version of the Japan Times sumo coverage when there is a basho (every two months). The Tokyo basho is winding up tomorrow and Mongolian grand champion Asashoryu is likely to win. He's 12-0 now. Unfortunately, one cannot find sumo on American TV. ESPN used to carry a one-hour special on each basho but I don't know if they do that anymore. I've heard there is going to be a sumo tour coming to Vegas in March 2006, which I would absolutely love to go to, but I can't find any info on it.
