The Daily Life Of Sumo Wrestlers By Paolo Patrizi


The wrestlers live, eat, and practice together at the stables. Exercises start around 6 a.m. with the juniors. A wrestler challenges an opponent, and he stays in the ring until someone beats him. At 8 a.m., Patrizi said, the more senior wrestlers come in and things get interesting.


"Some of the tough guys pick on the younger ones, and they trash them. There’s some serious beating going on. There’s a lot of bullying going on, but these guys keep quiet. They can’t complain," he said.


Training is grueling. When the sumos do go out, Patrizi said, it’s most often on a Sunday, their day off. He says they sometimes rent videos or play video games. - Slate

BTS: How Sports Illustrated Shoots Football

My friend Patrick did an amazing job making this video! He went down to New Orleans and interviewed some of the best sports photographers in the business at one of the biggest games this year. All of this was shot and edited by him. I know how hectic it was, and it was well worth it. 

Don’t just watch, read all about it here:

The Giselle Curse

It appears as though Giselle is a curse to sports fans. Sure, we in the fashion industry love her despite her recent outburst in public after the superbowl. 

For those living under a Louis Vuitton purse, Giselle is married to Tom Brady, who plays for New England. They lost the superbowl. Ever since she has been with him, it has been nothing but bad luck for his record. 

So sports fans want her out of his life. 

The Curse: 

It’s logical: you’re never cursed if you’re dating a supermodel, right? (We know, we’re superficial.) Still, the evidence is mounting: since Tom hooked up with Gisele in late 2006, a brief rundown of what’s happened: (1) Patriots blow a 21-point lead in the 2007 Conference Championship; the Colts go on and win the Super Bowl; (2) Patriots squander chance to close out a perfect season, in a game where little-known dudes like Jay Alford are all up in Brady’s grill; (3) Brady loses an entire season to injury. OK, we know: since they started canoodling, he’s also set a single-season TD record for quarterbacks and managed that brilliant game in San Diego in ‘07. And yes, we know the injury was a fluke. But you play for the rings, right? Bonus: watch this. Double bonus: in another example of potential girlfriend curses, Jessica is running her mouth about the Eagles.

Fashion success, NFL failure. 

So who really knows, it’s all coincidence, but sports fans think she’s cursed. 

What are your thoughts? 

It’s okay, I’ll take you Giselle - ha!


Space Diving: Sky Diving on the Edge of Space

A cool visual animation of what were to happen if you could sky dive from the edge of space. However, this is not an impossibility. Because this coming summer, something like this will be happening soon. 

Don’t believe me?
