Champ's was one of my favorite places to go, even though I lived downtown. Incidentally, Paul Steigerwald does Pittsburgh's television PBP now. Lange was moved to radio a few seasons ago.

That said, I don't understand why Flyers games would get blacked out on Comcast SportsNet in State College. What cable system do you have up there?

Edit: A friend of mine is chiming in on this discussion, telling me it's because CSN considers State College to be a "secondary" Philadelphia market, and that Phillies games are also blacked out from time to time. I remember when I first went up there, the only Philadelphia station to come through was WB17, and it was the first year (or so) that the Phils and Flyers had moved to UPN 57.
