Writing for FishDuck from Europe

For those of you who have read my posts so far, you know I’m new here at FishDuck.  In fact, I just started last month.  This timing posed an interesting challenge for me because merely a week or two before I came in contact with Charles Fischer, I decided to study abroad in Vienna, Austria for my spring term, which basically started today and goes until June 15.

At this point, you may be asking, “Victor, will you be able to still write for FishDuck while living nearly 6,000 miles away from Eugene?”

My answer: Yes I will, and I’m very impressed you know the approximate distance from Vienna to Eugene.  Will it be easy?  Of course not, but it certainly won’t be impossible.

The hardest part will be the availability of Ducks games.  I obviously have internet access, so baseball, softball, and other Oregon sports that are broadcast online will still be attainable (as far as I can tell), but night games on the West Coast take place during the early mornings in Vienna, so staying up late for all of those games just isn’t practical.

However, I’ll still be able to catch day games and, honestly, I’d probably miss a similar chunk of games if I were still living in Eugene because of my class and work schedule.

I’ll still have access to Ducks’ stats, highlights, and other information, so my job will not be hard whatsoever.  I’m actually really excited to see what it’s like to write from Europe.  I think my joy from studying in Vienna will translate into my writing.
