Mike Schur on ‘Costas Now’

The Office’s co-executive producer Mike Schur (aka Dwight’s cousin ‘Mose’) appeared on HBO’s ‘Costas Now’ this week to discuss Internet sports coverage and his blog Fire Joe Morgan. (WARNING: FJM is a little profane. But as Mike says, “FJM is extremely pro-swearing. We just feel you should be funny while doing it.”)


Mike appears starting at the 2:05 mark. (Sadly, this video has now been removed.)
