Sumo, baby!

Did you know there is such a thing as the California Sumo Association?

Did you also know that there is a US SUMO OPEN and it is happening in our fair City of Angels this weekend?

I got an email from Teebubble asking if I wanted to go (wish I could, but I can’t). But I was so fascinated by the site, I had to share.


SUNDAY, APRIL 9, 2006, 12:30 PM (doors open 11:30 AM)

Los Angeles Convention Center, Petree Hall (First Floor) go to LACC

The 6th Annual US Sumo Open competition features national and world champions from countries all over the world, including a team from Japan. Watch beautiful Japanese dance, listen to high-energy taiko drumming, and check out fashionable Japanese artwork and souvenirs in the event hall. Enjoy sushi, sake, and Japanese beer while you watch the action!

Special Guest:
Yokuzuna “Grand Champion” MUSASHIMARU

Looks like the $45 VIP and $25 Advantage tickets are sold out, but they still have the $15 General tix available!
