Legendary broadcaster Myron Cope dies at 79 – Post-Gazette The Maryland Bureau Chief tipped me off that Cope who was “so bad, he’s good” as a long-time Steelers broadcaster died today at age 79. He was credited with inventing the Terrible Towel.
I remember on Thanksgiving Sunday we were driving back from seeing family friends in Michigan and we found a Steelers game. We agreed the broadcasters were awful. Later, through the magic of NFL Films, I became more familiar with his work and became a fan of him. Not a Steelers fan though (except for Super Bowl XL).
Hall of fame broadcaster still hospitalized – Post-Gazette The Maryland Bureau Chief noted that it doesn’t sound good for former Steelers broadcaster Myron Cope. The article didn’t contain the “no more updates about his condition” line, so there is still some hope that the septuagenarian can recover from pneumonia that has had him hospitalized since November.
I’m going with Pittsburgh in a fairly close one. I see their clinching TD being a Ben Roethlisberger pass to Heath Miller from no more than a couple of yards out on play action to Jerome Bettis. Final score, Pittsburgh 28 Seattle 20.
Bettis will put the ball on the ground
Seattle is going to play angry, they are sick of being treated as the underdog despite a better record
If interviewed, Gov. Ed Rendell will talk about food
Lynn Swann’s candidacy for governor will be mentioned at least four times during the telecast
Art Monk will not be elected to the Hall of Fame this weekend
Pittsburgh fans still won’t get over Super Bowl XXX, even though the Steelers were not the best team that day
I’d like to see it
Seattle faking a field goal a la Jim Zorn
White pants on the Seahawks
