It is really dependent upon geographics, with a cutoff line somewhere between Lock Haven/State College.

Williamsport, being closer to Philadelphia and having a number of Philadelphia based TV stations on their cable package, tend to lean towards the Philadelphia based sports teams.

State College, being closer to Pittsburgh and having Altoona based local channels (and where a Pirates farm club team is located) tend to lean toward Pittsburgh based sports teams. If you want to watch the Pirates play next year, then you need to find a cable package in your area that carries Root Sports Pittsburgh.

Channel 428 on Dishnetwork, not sure of the # on Comcast or Direct. What a year for our Pirates! Too bad they couldn't have pulled one more win off last night.

This area is a great mosaic of sports teams.

I think it is nicer to live in an area with a mix of fans than a monolithic block.

The Buccos gave it a good run. The 'Curse of Barry Bonds' is over.

Root Sports Pittsburgh on Directv is channel 659. Time to start watching the Pens play.

Too bad for the Bucs. Now I don't have a team to root for. Too bad the Yankees. Now I don't have a team to root against.

Go Dolphins!
