Default Steelers' voice signs off on career

Steelers' voice signs off on career
By Chris Colston, Sports Weekly
"A yawping, squawking instrument that can clear arenas" is how The New York Times described it. The Washington Post said it "makes sandpaper seem like Charmin."

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette called it "a gargle-with-gravel thing that clangs of vaudevillian schtick."

The Associated Press said, "Think of a car careening to a screeching stop."

It is the voice of a beloved legend, a city icon, a man who never played professional sports yet they made bobbleheads of him anyway. They're talking about Myron Cope.

Rest of the article: http://www.usatoday.com/sports/footb...-colston_x.htm



Myron is a legend. And a beloved Pittsburgh figure. In my mind no one can replace him. It is nice to see so many articles and such great praise about him.

Cope definately has a unique voice and style that not everyone can appreciate unless you have a real love for the sport, and for its icons and history. Cope is no doubt and icon in broadcasting history.

I agree. I think the voice in a way is a blessing. Its distinct and sets him apart. If you hear him on the radio you know its him.

He is Pittsburgh, he is the Steelers voice. I could be here in Ohio and start searching on the radio looking for the game, before direct tv, and you wouldnever be mistaken once you heard that voice!
