Happy 65th Birthday, Taro Tsujimoto!

Recommended Posts

Retirement age is 60 in Japan, so it's not that special a day for Taro and his family. He's doing well and thinks of Buffalo often, what might have been. As you can see, he looks great, like he could still contribute to the Buffalo Sabres. Maybe one day. Actually, Taro still plays. You can see his familiar stocky build at Seibu Railway's Higashifushimi Rink from time to time.

He really has aged well.  He sure doesn't look 60.  Those two cuties must be his grand brats.

Wouldn’t Taro be older than 65?   In any event ....

This thread made me think of the Phantom Sign Makers back in The Aud.   The leader of the Phantoms, Steve Hill, passed away this past February and the Sabres TV crew did a tribute to him. 

The “Taro Says” signs were classics, many with insider humor.

I'm going by the training camp roster. 11-16-54. He was drafted at 19.

Well, if he doesn't look 60, because he is 65, he surely does not look 65.

My brain freeze ... you nailed it.   I had him filed as a member of the first draft class,  not 1974’s.

Taro's rookie card is selling right now on Amazon for $62 + shipping of $7.  That's a great price.  Better hurry, apparently there is only one left in stock.
