day 5: 2-6
good news, we were +1 in technique today. also, i went gbl, won, and had the 4th best lineup of the day. also, also, Daifuku put in a squad, went perfect, and won!
thus endeth the good news.
we were close to having a good day, really close. but noooooootttttttttt quite. things started out slowly, we lost our first two, and then Daifuku won his first of the basho, but beat Chibi_IMO to do it. then i won my bout, and we were 2-3 and +1 in the technique area. the last 3 matches all went to the bench, so things could have gone quite well. instead, all of the sakurans in bench matches were quickly dispatched, with sekihiryu and andonishiki going down on the first slot, and Saruyama lasting until the 2nd bench before he was defeated.
so our basho of woes continues. but hey, we can still turn this thing around. let's see if we can't go 6-2 on day 6. or how's about at least 4-4? :)
anyway, today sekihiryu quoted:
Last night, Darth Vader came down from Planet Vulcan and told me
that if I didn't take Lorraine out, that he'd melt my brain.
and today chabo knows! it's Back to the Future. i've seen that one lots of times, or, have seen parts of it lots of times. i don't usually have the patience to sit through a movie on the television.
and then as for the sakuran of the day? i'm going to go with me. i do so like a perfect gbl. :)
i thought about doing a check of sakura in the mcp, but now that i really think about it, i might not. we'll leave that for another day.
