Korean Foodie Site

I recommend the site FatMan Seoul for anyone who loves Korean food as much as I do. Best to view it just before lunch.

Asashoryu Wins 33 in a Row

The sumo Natsu Basho is underway, and Mongolian yokozuna

Asashoryu (3-0) marked 33 straight wins Tuesday, extending the record he set earlier this week when he surpassed the 10-year mark of 30 consecutive victories by yokozuna Takanohana. Asashoryu is the overwhelming favorite to win the summer tournament.

If he wins all 15 bouts in the current tournament, he’ll break a record set in 1949.

Only three wrestlers have had better streaks, with the best, 69, by Futabayama in 1939.
