A Sumo on thin ice, and the Supermarket of Tricks

The always-entertaining Harry Pearson writes in The Guardian about the current domination of Sumo by non-Japanese, including the Mongolian champion, Asashoryu (who appears, by and large, to live up to Peter Rozovsky's interpretation of his name).  Pearson thinks that the state of Sumo is eerily reminiscent of the English Premier League (soccer, that would be, for the non-Brits).  I think you'd be staring at Asashoryu for a long time before you thought of Didier Drogba or Robinho.
