Steelers fans offer more of their personal memories of Myron Cope: Part 5
When it is my time to hear Myron again, I know he won't be rusty on calling the plays. He may have to think a little harder about the names he makes up since he is with the big guys (the Lord and the Chief) now, but I know he can handle it. Myron is smiling, enjoying a cigar with the Chief, and thinking: "Yoi I made a difference in the lives of many." You will be missed, but not forgotten. You have my vote as a member of the Steelers All-time Roster.

Okel-Dokel, this is what's on my cranium, Double Yoi! The last time I remember being this upset was the day as an 11-year-old in Bethel Park I heard that Roberto Clemente's plane was missing and he was believed to be dead. This is truly a sad period in the history of Pittsburgh sports. What I lovingly remember most is the way my dad would get so aggravated with Myron but would listen to him at every opportunity.
The Terrible Towel is the most recognized icon or symbol for any team in sports. Everyone in America knows what it stands for.
While everyone would agree that Myron is a Steelers icon and that generations of fans loved him, his greatest legacy is all that he did for the Allegheny Valley School. I was choked up at the news of his passing, as I'm sure thousands of others were. He gave so many people some great memories and lots of laughs.
