Elvis has left the building, Yoi!

Tuesday, the voice of the Pittsburgh Steelers on radio, Myron Cope, hung up his microphone.

Now while I have become a die-hard steelers fan over the last 5 years, I rarely listened to Cope's broadcast. Granted, he was the truest example of the Pittsburgh stereotypical accent that you could find.

Myron (pronounced Mahrn) came up with the terrible towel and came up with the term, "Immaculate Reception." He is retiring because operations on his throat have not improved his health or his voice.

Prayers and wishes to him in his retirement. The team and the sport will not be the same to the fans who've listened to Cope for generations.
