Welcome to Okle Dokle: A Pittsburgh sports blog written by two life-long Pittsburghers and Pitt alumni. We know well the frustration of the Buccos’ sixteen straight losing seasons, the glory that is the Steelers, and the Pens’ epic quest to bring the Stanley Cup back to the ‘Burgh.
The blog takes its moniker from Pittsburgh legend, Myron Cope, who not only invented the Terrible Towel but also enriched the English language with phrases like “triple yoi” and “okle dokle.”
We’ll focus on all things Pittsburgh including the Steelers, Pirates, Penguins, Panthers and the NBA team that’s coming to Pittsburgh after Consol Energy Center opens (let’s get the rumor going now).
Welcome and enjoy yourself.
