    You could possibly get a gig at Stars and Stripes, the military's paper. There are civilian positions there. Not sure who to contact there now tho.

    Why is your wife bent on going to Europe? Is she from there?

    simple solution: get a satellite dish, and become a TV sports columnist for a paper in the states. you might have to keep strange hours, though.

    Possibly the most salient post I've seen this year.

    My ideal sports-related job if I worked in Europe would be working as a press officer for a Formula One team. It may not be an easy gig to land, but it's an idea.

    I understand why you're hesitant to go to Europe, but in the end it boils down to this: What's more important, where you live or your wife? Answer that first, and everything else follows.
    Good luck.

    I have several friends who lived abroad and when I went to visit I thought, 'Man how cool would it be to live in a foreign country?' Especially Europe.

    Get a brand-new job outside of writing. Why not? The experiences you'll have will be unforgettable and I bet you won't regret a minute.

    I don't see how a married couple could handle six years of separation. Yeah you'll visit each other, but that's a long time.
