Legendary Steelers radio man Myron Cope is retiring. He's been around forever, inventing the Terrible Towel and shouting nasal malapropisms to the delight of fans in Pittsburgh. Cope once said that when he got his first radio gig he was told he would fit in because "Obnoxious voices are coming into style." One of my biggest regrets as a football fan is that I've heard only clips of Cope and never an entire game. Are there any other radio men who so closely identify with their teams? I can't think of any.
