Fire Joe Morgan, one of my favorite places on the web, has long been a closed forum, run by a group of anonymous sports/baseball/Red Sox fans. It’s still closed, but as of Tuesday the editors have decided to be anonymous no longer. The most prolific (and in my mind, the best) writer of the bunch, Ken Tremendous, is apparently Michael Schur, a writer and producer for The Office, and formerly a writer for Saturday Night Live. I’ve learned that he’s married to Regis Philbin’s daughter (also a writer for Saturday Night Live and The O.C.), did really, really well at Harvard, and before that went to Hall High School in West Hartford. Who knows, my mom might have taught him career education when he was a kid, sending him on the path to fame and fortune.
So, there you go. I guess it shouldn’t surprise me that he’s a professional (and highly successful) comedy writer, since his posts are so damn funny.
