5/12/04 BEER NUTS: The TAMPA TRIBUNE reports the Tampa Police and MADD are irked that the Lightning are offering fans "all the beer they can drink during playoff hockey games if they agree to purchase season tickets."

The Lightning claim they take drunken driving seriously and that beverage workers at the St. Pete Times Forum are trained to detect drunks.

Based on Philadelphia Flyer Donald Brashear’s appearances against the Lightning in Tampa this season - they ain’t takin’ it that seriously.
