Talk Sporty to Me

Whether it’s with baby-stroller-roller-derby challenges or the girl-on-girl action that his prospective “soul mates” go through on VH1’s Rock of Love, it seems Poison frontman Bret Michaels is more into the idea of finding “love” than the actual execution of it.

If you’ve wanted to show him your wifey credentials but haven’t been sure how, try this nugget of knowledge: One place where Bret’s love never wavers is with his hometown Pennsylvania sports teams.

You’d expect a treasure chest of fans’ lingerie in Michael’s closet, but that’s actually where he stores his extensive collection of sports memorabilia from the Pittsburgh Steelers and Pittsburgh Pirates. So when he performs as the post-game entertainment for the Marlins vs. Pirates Super Saturday show today at Dolphin Stadium (2267 NW 199 St., Miami), you’ll have your chance to truly win his heart by wearing assorted Pittsburgh-themed swimwear and fighting your way to the front row. First pitch is at 7:10 p.m. and the free concert follows. Tickets for the combo start at $16. Call 1-877-MARLINS, or visit www.floridamarlins.com.
