I truly was confused with Joe P and Joe K;  I thought Joe K was not well and a bit down on his luck, but that could also be Joe P, who in the good old days I had a few back and forths regarding my intense Asashoryu worship stage.  I did go to a 28 day program to rid myself of this affliction, but occasionally the kids say I cry out night "Asashoryu!!! (in a good way).
