Catholics have some great paintings, but Shinto can not be beat for its corporeal beauty and costumes. I love the moment in the sumo tournament where all the wrestlers raise their arms. Are my feelings spiritual, carnal, or simply gleeful?
My readers know that I only care for sports in so far as there is someone interesting to look at. This basketball photo satisfies my basic requirements: Hot guys in uniforms (and not!), check. Inexplicable actions, check. Physical conflict that seems to mask physical attraction, check.
And I am left wondering why is the main stomper holding hands and locked arms with his teammate to his right?
There’s some story about how this brawl put an early end to an exhibition match in China with Washington DC’s Georgetown team. Thanks Ericthefez for photo & story.
