> 'Twas the night before the Super Bowl, when along the gulf shore,
> Steelers fans were praying for "just one more;"
> The players were nestled all snug in the sack,
> With visions of the first NFL Six-Pack;
> Coach Tomlin was young, but wise for his years,
> So I drifted off to sleep without any fears;
> When at the stadium there arose some strange chatter,
> The Cardinals feared, what was the matter;
> We heard "Okel Dokel", we heard "Double Yoi,"
> We jumped from our beds, our hearts jumped for joy;
> He stood at the fifty with a grin ear to ear,
> Steelers fans everywhere started to cheer;
> Then in an instant to our surprise,
> This little old man had tears in his eyes;
> He went to the booth and there took his chair,
> While Terrible Towels waved in the air;
> Then over the airwaves came his shrill voice,
> The Steelers Nation began to rejoice;
> He said, "I am back, but you know I can't stay,
> I just had to see my Steelers play;
> From my home up above, I have a great view,
> But I wanted to celebrate here with you;
> So bring on the Birds, we'll send them a flyin',
> On the way back to Phoenix , they will be cryin';
> Ben, Hines, Troy , Jeff and all of the rest,
> No matter the outcome, to me you're the best;"
> The airwaves went silent, the stadium still,
> Was this just a dream, it seemed so real;
> In our team we have faith, in our team we have hope,
> But the game's not the same without Myron Cope;
> Written by:
