Sumo!

Went to the Sumo match in Tokyo last week. Exciting, and casual at the same time. I’m more used to Ice Hockey, where you have to pay attention continuously. Watching Sumo is similar to watching Baseball, with periods of relatively little activity followed by brief periods of intense action. The clip below came after at least 3-5 minutes of posturing, gesturing, and salt-throwing.

And then it’s all over in seconds.
