Watching Sumo at Home

I usually only get to see Sumo on TV when I travel to Japan. However, I stumbled across a Sumo competition on TV tonight.

Look at the size of these two wrestlers. They both are over six feet tall and weigh over 400 pounds.

I will have to watch for the next showing. Sumo is an interesting sport to watch with all of the ritual that takes place.
