Making their first foray onto the indoor gridiron this season, the AFL newbies Pittsburgh Power bare their fangs at the Jacksonville Sharks on April 16 and stampede toward the Milwaukee Mustangs on June 25, in a game of fast-paced, potentially high-scoring arena action that pigskin fans inherently crave. Head coach Chris Siegfried has assembled a team led by quarterback and Pittsburgh native Anthony Morelli, who leads his associates using rushing and passing skills honed from previous stints with the Arizona Cardinals and Penn State Nittany Lions and an internship with the maitre d' of a busy restaurant. The Power's dance team, The Sparks, entertains the crowd between plays. All the action takes place at the newly built Consol Energy Center on Fifth Avenue, which also serves as home to the NHL's Pittsburgh Penguins and a hangar for invisible dirigibles. The April 16 game lures country fans with a halftime performance by Sarah Marince, and June 25 is Kids' Night.
