Myron Cope was one of a kind


Pittsburgh Steelers announcer Myron Cope died yesterday at the age of 79. Myron was one of the most colourful sports announcers in the US. I’d put him up there with Harry Caray.

The first time I heard Myron was about 5 years ago after leaving a Steelers game in Pittsburgh. A bunch of us were in the car, stuck in traffic and listening to the post-game show. At the time, we had no idea who this whacky Myron was, but he made us laugh and laugh and laugh.

If you’ve never had the pleasure of hearing Myron Cope say “Yoi!” or “that ain’t kosher” then you have to visit Arlin’s Myron Cope Sounds. My favourite sound clips are from Myron — In His Own Words. Myron was definitely one of a kind.
