Myron Cope Is MC Cope

In honor of the Pirates 10th inning win over the Braves Sunday, I'm happy to present the late, great Myron Cope's take on MC Hammer's U Can't Touch This.

When this video debuted on WTAE in 1990 (1990?!?!), I thought this was the funniest thing ever. While this doesn't seem to hold up as well today, it's still nice to see Myron Cope in action.

I can't wait to share this video again when the Pirates make the playoffs. Yes, I'm willing to wait.

Carissa - Myron Cope was a writer for Sports Illustrated and sports radio/TV personality in Pittsburgh but is best known as being an announcer for the Pittsburgh Steelers. He passed away a few years ago but his legacy will continue for years to come through the Terrible Towel.
