[sumo] Semi-Spoiler: Chiyotaikai and retirement

Looking at some of the newspaper websites today (Saturday), I see 
that Chiyo is at least talking about what it will take for him to 
retire. Unless he has gotten very strong in the last 2 months, he'll 
retire sometime in January as soon as he gets 6 losses.
He claims that he will fight in January even as a Sekiwake, but if he 
can't get 10 wins in January he will retire.
I hope he doesn't change his mind. I don't see him winning 8 in 
Fukuoka unless he gets very lucky. I don't think he is capable of 
ever winning 10 again.
I would like to be among the first to wish him the best in his 
post-sumo career.
