[sumo] [Spoiler]March Day 11 Makuuchi torikumi

Someone please explain to me the tradition or whatever it is that has 
these two pairing up on day 11 instead of later.  Everyone except 
Tochiazuma is pretty beat up this basho, so I'm not expecting Osh, Kaio, 
or Chiyotaiki to give Hakuho or Asashoryu much of a challenge when those 
bouts come up.
