The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has this (depending on your perspective) amusing/touching/sick story of the funeral service for Steelers fan James Henry Smith, who was laid out lying in a recliner, a pack of cigarettes and a beer by his side, a Steelers blanket across his lap, and Steelers higlights playing on an HDTV nearby.
I've heard of sports-themed weddings, and even attended one at a Mets game a few years back, but never a sports-themed funeral service.

Remember when the Eagles sacked Ben Roethlisberger eight times in 2008? Scott Kacsmar takes a stroll down memory lane with a look at the last time the Steelers played in Philadelphia, the No. 1 team in DVOA in 2008.
