The last professional sumo wrestling matching in L.A. was in 1981. But that will change this weekend when the Grand Sumo Tournament 2008 comes to the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena with 40 top wrestlers. Times reporter Teresa Watanabe followed around the wrestlers this week as they did L.A. -- including Universal Studios and the Hollywood Walk of Fame. They even went to a Dodgers game. We'll have a feature story on their big visit to L.A. soon.
