View Full Version : Twas the Night Before the Super Bowl

‘Twas the Night Before the Super Bowl

‘Twas the night before the Super Bowl, when along the gulf shore,
Steelers fans were praying for “just one more;”

The players were nestled all snug in the sack,
With visions of the first NFL Six-Pack;

Coach Tomlin was young, but wise for his years,
So I drifted off to sleep without any fears;

When at the stadium there arose some strange chatter,
The Cardinals feared, what was the matter;

We heard “Okel Dokel”, we heard “Double Yoi,”
We jumped from our beds, our hearts jumped for joy;

He stood at the fifty with a grin ear to ear,
Steelers fans everywhere started to cheer;

Then in an instant to our surprise,
This little old man had tears in his eyes;

He went to the booth and there took his chair,
While Terrible Towels waved in the air;

Then over the airwaves came his shrill voice,
The Steelers Nation began to rejoice;

He said, “I am back, but you know I can’t stay,
I just had to see my Steelers play;

From my home up above, I have a great view,
But I wanted to celebrate here with you;

So bring on the Birds, we’ll send them a flyin’,
On the way back to Phoenix , they will be cryin’;

Ben, Hines, Troy , Jeff and all of the rest,
No matter the outcome, to me you’re the best;”

The airwaves went silent, the stadium still,
Was this just a dream, it seemed so real;

In our team we have faith, in our team we have hope,
But the game’s not the same without Myron Cope;

That was nice...got a little misty there.

I know the "Chief," Myron, Ernie, Dwight, and all the other Steelers who've gone on before us will be watching.

Just an FYI I didn't write the above poem, but I left the credit to the person who did.

Very nice,
a little chocked up, I got over this,
But, in Myron you know, we all very miss!!!

what other team has such a persona? none but Steelers.

Nice work, that man is truly missed. We the Steeler Nation are very misunderstood and taken for granted by the mainstream. Until Sunday that is.

One month before my father passed, he went to Myron Cope's roast at Heinz Field where MANY Steelers from the 70's and 80's honored Cope - and Cope was a wonderful, funny speaker.

My dad was thrilled he used the urinal next to Bill Hillgrove and chatted with him a few minutes...too funny.
