Yoi! Pittsburghers Do Best Myron Cope Impersonations
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Steelers’ fans were channeling Pittsburgh’s most famous commentator Thursday evening during the “Myron Cope Impersonation Contest” at Ross Park Mall.
Each contestant had 60 seconds to announce a portion of a recent Steelers game in their best Myron Cope voice and mannerisms.
The judges looked for verbal accuracy, appearance, creativeness and effectiveness of announcing the play.
In the end, Mike Dillon, of Shaler, was crowded the winner.
“I actually thought some did a little better than me. There were a lot of good contestants and I think a lot of people really sounded like Myron,” said Dillon. “I was just thrilled to win.”
Dillon won a 42-inch plasma television.
Jonathon Erkel, of the Eouth Side, came in second, followed by J.J. Trant of Wexford.
