Thanks for posting Kevin, I was just going to do this and post the same link. I'm not ashamed to say I got choked up reading this fine obit.
Myron was a true Pittsburgh icon. His Pittsburghese was exactly how we locals sound. Myron was a color commentator in the old school mold, colorful but very knowledgeable. Myron was the voice and heart of Steelers Nation. It's hard to explain how this diminutive fella could achieve such celebrity. It was said that Myron had a face for radio and a voice for newsprint. Myron Cope was the real deal, he brought knowledge to sportscasting but more importantly, he brought humor. He never forgot that it is just a game after all.
Although he gained his celebrity on TV he was also an excellent writer, a true journalist. Just check out the acknowledgments and accolades.
I urge all to read the link posted by Kevin. There you will find the tale of a great human being, a hero I dare say.
Myron you done did us proud.
