R.I.P. Myron Cope

Today the Steeler Nation lost an important voice, Myron Cope. Cope called games for the Steelers for 35 years acting as the voice for some of the franchises most memorable events (excluding the "Immaculate Reception." He left the booth early to go to the field to do post-game interviews). Cope was also the inventor of the famed Terrible Towel. His nasally voice will always be remembered as one of the most distinctive ones to ever enter a broadcast booth. Prayers go out to his family and the rest of Steeler Nation.
