Yoi. Ledcat caught the story on her way out the door this morning. God rest his soul.
There's a much loved family connection to Myron Cope. My great-grandfather, Gil Remley, was the sports editor for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (and the business manager for the Homestead Grays). Family lore has that he gave Myron his first job in the print media. Myron's book “Double Yoi!” tells the story a bit differently, but does include a shout out to Da.
I met Myron at a work dinner speech function thing. I told him I was Gil Remley's great-granddaughter and he laughed uproariously. I hoped he would spontaneously offer me Steeler tickets, but alas no.
I wonder what he would think about my association with John McIntire?
Rest in peace.
