Steel Worker Copes with Pneumonia Again

Former Pittsburgh Steelers broadcaster Myron Cope is back in the hospital, battling pneumonia.

Cope, 78, has been in and out of the intensive care unit while doctors try to clear his lungs and try to figure out why pneumonia keeps recurring. In May 2006, Cope was hospitalized for pneumonia, too.

In 2004, he was diagnosed with polymyalgia, a condition that has kept the "Terrible Towel" inventor in constant pain.
