Pittsburgh Sports Media Icon Myron Cope dies

The PG's Gene Collier has the details

Everyone has their Myron story, here is mine:

My neighbor was a close friend of former Steeler Justin Strzelczyk. It has always been rumored that Myron drank during Steelers broadcasts and Strzelczyk confirmed this when he joined Bill Hillgrove, Tunch, and Myron in the booth. Myron indeed had beer in the broadcast booth, which Justin quickly consumed, prompting Myron to blurt out on the air, "Strzelczyk drank all my beer!" I met Strzelczyk a few times during his playing days and he is definetly the kind of guy who would drink all of Myron's beer and not give it a second thought.

You will be missed Myron.
