Steelers HOF Announcer, Myron Cope, passes away

New, comments

Steelers broadcaster Myron Cope died this morning at a nursing home. Cope had been treated for respiratory problems and heart failure in recent months. He was 79 years old at the time of his death and today will be a day that all Steelers fan will remember.


One of the Greatest Steelers of all time, RIP Mr. Cope.

Cope, the creator of the "Terrible Towel", entertained and informed fans with his color-commentary on the Steelers Radio Network from 1970 until June 2005. There are many of us here, including myself, that were either too young or too far from Pittsburgh to hear his work outside of replays or highlights so feel free to use this thread to leave us with your memories of this Steeler legend.
