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.
