August 01, 2012|By David Zurawik | The Baltimore Sun

A Baltimore funeral home  is among those featured in an ESPN campaign from Academy-Award-winning director Errol Morris that launched today.

The project, which includes 15-, 30- and 60-second trailers as well as a short documentary, looks at sports-themed funerals and fans who want to take their love of the games to the grave with them. The project is called "It's Not Crazy, It's Sports."

Morris visits the Kaczorowski Funeral Home in Dundalk where viewers get a look at an Orioles casket and hear about a Ravens-themed funeral. Of course, he also visits a Pittsburgh funeral home, which really did go the extra mile in laying a body out on recliner with the Steelers on a nearby TV.

This is not to be missed.

Here's video of the Baltimore segment:
