chick hearn is the famous caller of the games for the l.a. lakers and harry carey called games for the chicago cubs. both were nation wide known, legendary icons for 30+ years. cope is footballs version. all were a bit eccentric but definitely fan favorites.

The thing about Myron is, even if you love him the voice is completely annoying. That's not the point. The point is that the man knows so much about sports that the voice is irrelevant. If you want to listen and learn, you put up with the voice. It's the ultimate triumph of talent, everyman as the sage.

Those other towns, you all can keep your empty talking heads reading off of cue cards. I'll take Cope yinzin' out real insight and knowledge and passion.

Since the age of four I've been listening to that mans voice. It never bothered me. The man told it like it was. Never sugarcoated when we were playing bad and gave high praise when we played well. I respect that in a sports announcer. Also, he did not go the Walter Cronkite route where he made you fall asleep when listening to away games like many other announcers in sport. As a Pittsburgh-bred Steeler fan, you grow up with three things.....listening to Myron Cope, Primanti's before or after the game and a terrible towel.

Cope is sorely missed during away games for this Steeler fan.

KDKA.com reports almost two weeks after being admitted to a Pittsburgh hospital, former Pittsburgh Steelers broadcaster Myron Cope is now recovering at a rehabilitation center. He has been battling pneumonia and a string of other illnesses recently.
Good Luck Myron!!!!!
