Myron Cope’s Pirates Freestyle


When Myron Cope passed away earlier this year, I was surprised at all of the national attention it received. I grew up listening to him do color for Steelers broadcasts, and was just aware enough to catch the tail end of his career as a drive time sports host. I loved it of course, but it always struck me as a very regional act, something that would go from “endearing” to “put a lock on grandpa’s liquor cabinet” were I not born and raised in Pittsburgh.

A case in point is this video from 1990, where Myron does a “tribute” to the Eastern Division Champion Pittsburgh Pirates. I think there was probably a chance to make it clever, with lyrics that actually rhymed, were audible, and you know, made sense. Instead, it’s just an old guy in track pants making a lot of noise. And yet, it’s also awesome.

It’s also worth noting in times like this, that Myron Cope was also one of the best sports writers of his generation.

    Funny yet very wrong at the same time. Disturbing.
