Do some of you fans say Yoi or Double Yoi?

Or is that a Myron-only thing?

Ah...I think its just Myron's thing---or people playing tribute to Myron. I've never heard anyone use it seriously---without reference to Myron.

I have heard it used once by a guy at the bar that just needed to give me his opinion of the game. EVERY SINGLE PLAY he was saying "that's a YOI", "Thats a double YOI". Just one of those annoying ones, leave the YOI's to Myron, he was the best!

Interestingly, I grew up hearing that word all the time - my mother used it when she was exasperated (usually had something to do with either me or my brother misbehaving). It's a Yiddish expression, and I'm Italian, so go figure.

I say it occasionally (though never during a Steeler game, for whatever reason), it's "yoi and double yoi" and always with a heavy dose of Cope accent. Ya gotta love Myron. :wink02:

I believe it to be a Myron-ism. I've used it once or twice while watching a game, but I don't really here people using it here in the Burgh.
