Product Description & Reviews
This entertaining, revealing memoir of the Pittsburgh writer-turned-broadcaster recounts memories and behind-the-scenes stories from a career that can only be called truly special. No broadcaster has come even close to matching his stretch of 35 years as radio color analyst for an NFL teamâ€™s gamesâ€”in Copeâ€™s case, the six-time Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers. Here, Cope gives you insight into the performers who have inspired the Steelers Nation. Their path to the top is reflected in observations he offers with admiration, amusement, and blunt criticism.Seasoned with laugh-out-loud anecdotes and touching vignettes, Double Yoi! shares Copeâ€™s most personal moments, from labor pains in birthing the Terrible Towel to the reason behind his charity work with the physically and mentally afflictedâ€”among them, his son Dannyâ€”to his emotional dedication to his late wife, Mildred, who died after a long battle with cancer. The authorâ€™s most embarrassing moments, including getting the hook during his Pro Football Hall of Fame acceptance remarks, are here as well.Famed for his raspy voice and enthusiastic style, Myron Cope transcended mere broadcasting to become part of the Pittsburgh Steelers mythos. From firsthand experiences, Cope brings his takes on the famous, such as Terry Bradshaw, Muhammad Ali, the Dallas â€śCryboys,â€ť and Bill Cowher. Cope also explains how he helped John F. Kennedy become Americaâ€™s first Catholic President and how Frank Sinatra nearly cost him his job.Double Yoi! is the ultimate collectorâ€™s item for the Pittsburgh-loyal and the standard for accomplished sportswriters nationwide.
