The L.A. Times reports a cheating scandal:
OSAKA, JAPAN — It sure looks real enough, all those vicious slaps to the face and head-smacking collisions and men of generous poundage being hurled into the dirt.
But the shadow of fraud hangs over this spring's sumo tournament in Osaka
I saw the news at WorldHum, which asks:
Is Japan’s beloved sport of sumo wrestling scripted and fake?
I've always gotten a big kick out of Sumo wrestling and would hate to think the big guys cheat!
