Posted on: May 19th, 2017 by Ron Kaplan No Comments

An occasional look at who will be participating in the upcoming 20th Maccabiah Games in Israel…

Kicking up their heels for Maccabiah

Posted on: January 5th, 2017 by Ron Kaplan

Hard to believe the 2017 Maccabiah is just a few months away. And because these are the 20th games, you know it’s going to be a major deal.

Fundraisers and tryouts are already under way. Here’s a piece about an octet of athletes from a dojo in New York that are already gearing up for the competitions.

Black belt members of the Warren Levi Martial Arts dojo in Cedarhurst. Levi is at far right.

For those looking to catch up with the story behind the quadrennial event, I humbly offer The Jewish Olympics: The History of the Maccabiah Games. Who knows, maybe I’ll be updating it after July.

through what I assume will be the last round of formal edits with the publisher for The Jewish Olympics.

Now can I relax a bit?

The last couple of days have been almost a cartoon. Picture a circular conveyor belt: I get the chapters back with revisions to accept or reject, etc. So I work on those and send them back. Then they send them back again, incorporating the changes, for my approval. Then I send it back to them, with a few little tweaks. Then they send them back to me. All this in very short time.

Kinda like this, without the calories:

So now it goes to production for layout. Looking forward to see that step. Then  they make the Advanced Reader Copies (ARCs) that get sent to reviewers

I have secured the participation of a well-known sports journalist for the foreword, though I hesitate to mention the name at this point since it isn’t in our hands yet. Next come those “advance praise”/blurbs you see on the cover or in PR materials.

Looks like this thing is actually going to happen (knock on wood).

 

 

Shameless self-promotion: The Jewish Olympics

Posted on: January 13th, 2015 by Ron Kaplan

Don’t know how I forgot to mention this, but yesterday I handed in the manuscript for The Jewish Olympics: The History of the Maccabiah Games.

Maybe it’s superstition, but until I get through the various rounds of editing I won’t feel truly comfortable. There’s a lot of self-doubt (at least for me) which I compare to buyer’s remorse: did I make the right decisions in the telling? What could I have done better/differently? What should I have for dinner? I wonder if there’s  any author out there — including a Stephen King or a David McCullough — who is absolutely 100 percent satisfied with what they turn in.

I kept a journal, kind of “The Making of…” the book for future amusement, thinking about the wonderfully cooperative people as well as the ones who could have made my life so much easier with little effort. Not that I hold grudges.

Anyway, stay tuned for the latest developments.

 

Clean sweep

Posted on: August 5th, 2013 by Ron Kaplan

Going through the mailbox to clean up the dust-bunnies that accumulated during my trip to the SABR convention (more on which later).

MACCABIAH

* Maccabiah Games close in Jerusalem with Israel topping medal count (Cleveland Jewish News)

* After accident, athlete returns to Maccabiah triumphant (JWeekly.com)

* SoCal athletes find fulfillment at Maccabiah Games (Jewish Journal)

* For ESPN broadcaster, Maccabiah ends just as it was getting started (St. Louis Jewish Light)

BASEBALL

* Enough Of Ike Davis — New York Mets Should Let Josh Satin Start Everyday (RantSports)

* Ike Davis Is Batting .317 Since All Star Break, But… (MetsMerized)

* Ryan Braun, Disgraced Jewish Baseball Player? (ReformJudaism.org) Personally, although this is a shande and fodder for those anti-Semitic knuckleheads who live for this stuff, I think Braun’s religion is totally irrelevant. Few seem to bring that up for Andy Pettitte, a self-proclaimed Christian who admitted using HGH and testified at the trial of former teammate Roger Clemens.

* A pitch to report cyber hate (Jewish Week)

* Op-Ed: A Tisha B’Av Message for the All-Star’s (IsraelNationalNews) Still interesting, even though I overlooked posting this at the appropriate time.

* Ryan Braun is a Major League Baseball Star. So, Why Haven’t Jews Embraced Him? (Tablet) The same can be said for this piece, which fell through the cracks prior to Braun’s suspension.

FOOTBALL

* Listen to Gabe Carimi (JoeBucsFan)

* Carimi pushes for spot on Bucs line (Tampa Bay Times)

* Bucs OL coach helping Carimi with transition (Tampa Tribune)

* Tempers flare at Jets camp (Newsday re : Antonio Garay). To use the name of a regular Pardon the Interruption segment, “something or nothing?”

* Bengals’ strong safety position up for grabs? (NBCSports re: Taylor Mays)

* Schwartz faces ‘different’ pass-rush moves (ClevelandBrowns.com)

* Bears rookie punter faces daunting challenge (Chicago Tribune, re: Adam Podlesh)

BASKETBALL

* The Dallas Mavericks want Gal Mekel to show up to camp early, and Israel’s coach isn’t happy (Yahoo Sports)

* Mekel chooses to sit out EuroBasketl (Jerusalem Post)

* Israel national coach Arik Shivek blasts Mavericks for putting Gal Mekel in impossible situation (Dallas Morning News) Hey, at least it’s not a Yom Kippur dilemma thing.

* New Maverick Gal Mekel not worried about transition to the NBA: Basketball is basketball (Dallas Morning News) “A rose is a rose…”

* Growing up as the ‘Jewish Jordan’ (ESPN.com re: Tamir Goodman)

BASKETBALL
* Soccer star Lionel Messi visits Western Wall on ‘peace tour’ (JTA)

* Egyptian agrees to play in Israel for Swiss soccer squad (JTA)

MISC

Jews and Cricket (Jerusalem Post)

* German industrialist (and IOC member) Berthold Beitz dies at 99 (ESPN.com)
