    and they and the Steelers have had more than their share of playoff battles through the years, but I know who Myron Cope was. I know how warm-hearted he was, and I know his distinctive voice and sayings were legendary.

    I would have paid to have been allowed to sit in the booth and hear him, Hilgrove, and Tunch Ilkin call a game. Listening to him and Jack Flemming probably wouldn't have been so bad either.

    You weren't the only ones who turned the TV volume down to hear Myron and his "Hmm, haa!!!" or "Double yoi!". We had a true professional radio announcer for years in Bob Martin. Martin was the opposite of Cope, in that he wasn't colorful. He was a professional's professional (not that Cope wasn't professional). He and color analyst Larry Zimmer (who himself succeeded Martin with play-by-play duties) had a way of describing the game that was so easy to understand, but the two of them weren't condescending about it.

    liberal bias = failure to validate or sufficiently flatter the conservative narrative on any given subject
