Errol Morris's Short Film On Sports-Themed Funerals Is Morbidly Cool

One of the best things ESPN has ever commissioned is the fantastic 30 For 30 series, which is now available on Netflix Instant. There are more on the way this fall, but here's a short film done in that vein—directed by Oscar-winner Errol Morris (Mr. Death, The Fog of War, Standard Operating Procedure)—that should help bridge the gap until then. Morris, in his trademark, conversational style, takes us into the weirdly fascinating world of how the über-fandom of superfans is often honored, even in their death, in some truly memorably ways. It's eight minutes long and highly worth your time, so check it out when you can.
