Asanokiri

Noted sumo wrestler Asanokiri once lost a disappointing match with Chiyohakuho which he might easily have won. The cause of his defeat? He was disqualified under an obscure rule -- invoked after his loincloth fell off on Japanese national television!

["I tied my mawashi (a 23-26 foot-long belt wrapped several times around the body) the way I always do," he later explained, "but today it just came loose."]
