I'm talking long term, though, like maybe by the end of a full season.
I hope you're both wrong. I mean, I suppose they're building up to some sort of rift between Jim and Pam, but I don't see why it has to big enough to break them up. Who's to say that Pam and Jim don't struggle for a little while, but ultimately Jim realizes that he can achieve his dreams and he and Pam are better off for it? And so Jim becomes a sports writer and he and Pam move to Philly, where her burgeoning art career can take off. I suppose that would make a fitting finale.
Nah, make it more like a real office relationship. They thought it was gonna rock, it ended up just being ok so they go back to being friends after a while. Akward for a bit, but fine within a few months. Just so long as they stay the hell away from any wedding bullshit I'm cool.
My office of 60 people has 4 couples who met and got married while working here, so I don't see how a breakup is any more "real" than having them do the wedding bullshit.

I am about 0 for 1,263,924 in television series predictions - but that just means I'm due.
Perhaps to add to that...he recommended Ryan for the position?

I appreciate them taking a new direction, but watching Michael Scott has become sad and depressing rather than funny lately. Jim may be getting what he deserves, but it doesn't really make for hilarious comedy. Jim is miserable. Pam is miserable.
