    Is it cheating to write a long story using one word per post in order to get past the 1000 mark

    Hoping for 57,000lbs live weight averaging $1.38/lb. We are currently finishing 20 steers for slaughter. Finished prices higher. I can hook you up.

    Got woken up from a dream the other that I was at a boxing training camp, and one of the trainers there wouldn't let me box southpaw. Explained to him it's a legitimate way to box, proved it to him, and also I can't throw hard hooks with my left due to a shoulder issue (true outside of dreamland), and he didn't care. Told me I had to, or I had to leave, no refund. I woke up furious about an hour after I went to sleep, couldn't fall asleep again until 3/4. Then had to get up a little before 7 for work. Did not end up being a fun workday.

    It was. I usually don't remember my dreams, but this one stuck out. The cool thing is I was getting a really intense workout until they switched my trainers on me. Too bad I don't have the time/money for that (or ability with COVID) to attend something like that now.

    In other news, today is day 3 of the January Grand Sumo tournament, if anyone's interested. Third consecutive tournament with Hakuho out. Twice for injury and now he's tested positive for COVID, along with several others.

    Also missing Enho, who dropped down to Juryo this tournament, so his matches aren't being included in the broadcasts I watch. He's such an underdog, but it's fun to watch him try to move those guys who outweigh him by sometimes over 150lbs.

    Big news this go around is that Takakeisho is going for Yokozuna, though with two losses out of the gate, it's looking like an uphill battle for him.

    I normally enjoy enho, but just felt bad the last tournament. He was trying so many different things, trying to force a way to evolve his game, and just...couldn't. I think it might be better for him to practice at Juryo for a bit, improve himself (and also put on some of the weight he lost back), and give it a fresh go with a different mentality.

    I think you're right, though those juryo guys aren't any smaller. :D

    It seems like he's got something jinky with his back, too.

    They might not be smaller, but he can at least work and compete with them on a better footing. And I don't think he'll be back immediately, he'll have to work his way back up a bit. Didn't know something was wrong with his back though, that's unfortunate.

    To clarify, I don't know if he was injured or not. Just looked like it to me.
