On the plus side, he's a Pittsburgh guy (Murrysville, if I remember correctly), and we're patient people when it comes to our dream jobs, so if his goal is to be a Pens broadcaster, he'll stick around until it's available, as long as the wait isn't too long.
Hey, Lange isn't gonna be around forever, and he'll at least break in on the radio side. I definitely would rather he was calling games than (guy who we will not name), and I could tolerate his misgivings learning the job than listening to that nameless person.

He'll be really good the sooner he's in there.

He's got my backing. Looking forward to his future play by play.

Steigerwald, Errey and Pierre McGuire are reminders that everything is NOT perfect about the return of the NHL!

Gotta find the mute button once again.

Anyone been listening to Pens Radio this week in the morning/afternoon? Brutal.

They got Rossi on now blabbing about nothing but acting like a hot shot.

I haven't had a chance to listen to Pens Radio during the day in almost 2 years because of where I was working, but am back listening and wow, it's absolutely dreadful.
