[sumo] Fun with Sumo (bumper stickers)

Last weekend, we visited our grandkids for the granddaughter's 10th 
birthday party. First though on Friday night we went to a minor 
league baseball game that our son got tickets for.
Later in the game, my wife went to get some ice cream for all of us. 
Then told me this story when she got back.
While standing the long, slow line at the concession stand, she began 
talking with someone else in the line. Barbara responded to some 
question by telling the person that "we are not from around here." 
Adding that we live in Maryland. The lady then asked if we had a red 
van, then "Does it have a sumo bumper sticker?" Yes.(Although Barbara 
had not actually seen the sticker yet, she knew it was there.) They 
had driven into the parking lot behind us.
Now, my question for my wife was did they read the sumo bumper 
sticker or did they recognize the tiny drawing of the sumotori on the 
sticker? She didn't know. The reason I wondered about that is that I 
got the bumper sticker with "Sumou" written in katakana.
So, I would like to thank whoever it was that responded to the 
question about where to buy sumo bumper stickers and whoever it was 
who asked the original question.  Thank you both.
