Sumo was amazing.  I still cannot believe I have gone to a full-fledged Sumo tournament.  I will be honest, I wasn’t expecting much going to sumo.  From what I have heard from friends who had gone on this study abroad before, it was one of the most boring things.  They claimed it was interesting for a few minutes but became repetitive.  I did not feel this way at all.  I got completely into sumo.  I started doing chants and cheering for specific wrestlers.  Mind you I had no idea which one was which, I was just shouting with the little Japanese kids that sat behind me.  I could honestly see myself watching this as a regular sport.  I cannot stress how much I enjoyed sumo.  The fun part was that I did not even have to read the rule book.  Nicholas read it and actually started reciting information to the camera, just for the heck of it.  It was an extremely fun day.
