THE LIGHTNING PLAYOFFS // STAND OUT AND CHEER!

Yessir! Yessir! It's a tied score with no overtime _ fashion sense: zero, modesty: zero. There's one thing for sure in these Stanley Cup playoffs: Tampa Bay fans have caught a bad case of Lightning fever, and they're dressing to show it.

From belly painting and blue hair to Stanley Cup hats and lucky cowskins, the sky's the limit for area hockey fans.

"They got it goin' on," said Shane Bennett of Clair Mel City in Tampa, who wore a cowskin as a shirt. "Cowskins are good luck, so we had to bring them to the playoffs. They've come for Stanley's Cup, and we're gonna help them bring it home."

The Stanley Cup is on everyone's mind (and head).

"It looks like Coneheads up there," said Scott Pettay, a Dome security officer, as he looked into the stands. "There's 15 cup heads in a row."

But the foam bolt hats say it all.

Tampa Bay fans have been struck by Lightning.
