A 27 bout losing streak

We've talked about the Mongolian Sumo champion, Asashoryu, before (and I won't repeat Peter Rozovsky's intriguing, if scurrilous, suggestions about that name), so thought you might like an update on his progress in the New Year Sumo championships.  I know - we talk of little else in the pubs and bars of Greater Manchester...

Anyway, Asashoryu had a poor start, losing to an apparent 'rank and filer' but has now, um, bounced back to defeat his arch rival, Ozeki Kotomitsuki, who had vowed to stop him and so end a 27 bout losing streak.  Sadly, that presumably now becomes a 28 bout losing streak.

In this age of globalization, one can no longer brush off suggestions such as mine as scurrilous. I think such a name could earn the man some valuable publicity, at least in the West.

Quite possibly so - I hear Hollywood calling, or possibly even the Governorship of Califoria...
