THE END

1 Oct

And so, friends, we seem to have come to the end.  It has been exactly a week since I returned from Florida.  One cannot simply be the King of Jewish Baseball forever.  One must, after all, get a job, and take an e-publishing course at NYU. Every story, every book, every life, no matter how great, and no matter how desperately we want to think otherwise, must end.  And this is it.

I will revisit the blog and will post relevant news as it occurs, but as for regular posts from your favorite genius, this will be the last.

I printed and re-read the blog.  Here it is.

the Greatest Blog of All Time

Nearly 200 pages of musings, photos, videos, and prolific exaggerations whipped together like a violent and beautiful tornado of genius and technology given shape in the form the Greatest Blog of All Time.  We have covered some ground, from Gold Jewelry to Richie’s Gym, the A’s, the T-Dogs, and, of course, the Tournament, the Team, the Wins, and the Loss.  And it has been fun, maybe the most fun you’ve ever had, the most fun you’ve ever had reading at-least.  And I thank you for joining me– us, for the ride.

Just because this is the last page of the Book-Video-Blog-Genius-Masterpiece-Semi-Autobiographical-Graphic-Novel known as the King of Jewish Baseball, it is not the end of the road for baseball in Israel, and it is not the end of the road for me.  Not even close.  And we still need your help.  To support Israel Baseball, visit the Israel Association of Baseball’s website… www.baseball.org.il.

And always remember, no matter what time of day or night, feeling good or bad, sad or indifferent, know, my children, that as you rise each day and make your coffee and tie your shoes and drive your cars and think your thoughts, you are the King of Something – the King of Doing the Dishes, or the King of Turkey Sandwiches, the King of Laundry Day, or the King of Listening to Talk Radio.  So, ask yourselfs, one last time…

What are you the King of?

The only thing I know with certainty that you are not…

Nate Fish, The King of All Jewish Baseball

Signing off.

    Nate:

    I felt like crying when I read this. What an amazing journey and the blog that chronicled it was amazing, too. You are a really great writer, able to describe situations and people to a “T”. I am so proud of you!!

    Love,

    MOM

    I have a question??? Will you wait to print the final page of the blog AFTER these comments?
    Or will it simply be an addendum to the notebook at a later juncture?

    Just want to make sure you enjoy the full breadth of your blogging experience when you look back in 20 years.

    I will miss musings, photos, videos, and prolific exaggerations.

    Really fun blog. Wish there was more to say; maybe you’ll find a different voice on matters in addition to baseball. Meantime, are you even on FB. One jewish baseball dad would like to friend you up and keep track of the King…

    It’s not the end. It’s only just the beginning. Can’t wait to see your next venture. You’re the King…in whatever you do. I’ve loved reading this blog. It’s humor, intelligence and feeling were always so much fun and moving to read. Long live the King of Jewish Baseball!

    One of the things I love most about your blogs is that I get to be wherever you are and see it through your eyes, you are that good a writer. I have loved everyone of your blogs and am very sorry to have it end. I’m hoping you’ll start another about the next adventures in your life so you can keep us smiling and laughing and crying too. Rock steady Nate, you’ve got a lot of good coming your way. Love aunt S

    Fish, where to start? Certainly not an end my friend! Guess it’s time to start the book pal, and want you on board. You are the King of alot, and I watched you in the park that day working and interacting with the kids and future baseball stars and kings. You are using your gifts and sharing your life as God planned for you, if it makes you happy, DON’T STOP….peace, my brother,
    Billy
