In case you were wondering... He's 78. He'll be 79 in January.

I hope he recovers.

Myron is still in the hospital's intensive care unit. This is not looking good for our Myron. Please keep him in your prayers.

Hall of fame broadcaster still hospitalized
Thursday, January 17, 2008

By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Former Steelers broadcaster Myron Cope remains in a local hospital with little change in his condition or prognosis since he was admitted in late November.

Cope, who turns 79 Jan. 23, has battled various health ailments the past year including recurring cases of pneumonia. He has been in the hospital's intensive care unit.

Cope retired as the Steelers color analyst on their radio network before the 2005 season after 35 consecutive years on the job. A former sports writer for the Post-Gazette and nationally known book and magazine author, Cope entered broadcasting in 1968 with WTAE Radio. He became the host of a widely popular nightly sports radio talk show, beginning in '73 and lasting into '95. He also worked as a sports commentator for WTAE television. And, of course, he developed and popularized the Terrible Towel.

The Steelers honored Cope at a ceremony at a home game in 2005 when they presented him with his own team jersey.

Cope won numerous awards during his years in journalism, his most coveted two most recently. He became the first pro football announcer selected for the National Radio Hall of Fame, joining the likes of Bob Hope, Edward R. Murrow, Orson Welles and Vin Scully. And he was presented the Pete Rozelle Radio and Television Award at Pro Football Hall of Fame ceremonies in Canton, Ohio.

I had the privilege of meeting Myron at Cope's Cabana over three years ago. It was a preseason game and despite the fact it was a "meaningless" game, he spent two hours analyzing and talking it up with the handful of us in attendance. I couldn't meet a more warm and genuine man who just loves the game.
One of my pieces of pride and joy is the Terrible Towel he autographed for me.
If the house catches fire, I'm grabbing the wife and the framed Towel.
I always laugh when I see the giveaway towels sponsored by a grocery store / radio stations twirling in other stadiums.
Nice try kids, there's only one Towel.
Take care Myron, my thoughts are with you.
