I went to a booksigning this morning and this author guy said,
“Have you seen that sumo video? The one where the little white guy can cream all the huge, enormous sumo wrestlers? Time after time, he just smears them. You have to look it up!”
Well, bet your bottom dollar, I came right home and found it. Wimp dot com. Fun site!
Anyway, here’s the link. Check this out. Does it prove the whole premise of Big in Japan, my novel where a big white guy can go to Japan and accidentally become a sumo wrestler? That’s for you to decide. Still, it’s three minutes. Just watch the awesomeness.
Oh, and I have to give a big “thank you” shout out to Mark Nielsen of MarkSNeilsen.com–great find! (Check out his page and his beeeeeautiful new book. So glad I got my hands on a copy.)
