A Milwaukee hockey team will host a “Don’t Be Like Mike” night next week to discourage fans from following Michael Phelps’ dubious example, the Journal Sentinel reports. Graduates of the DARE program—as well anyone named Michael, Phelps, Mary Jane, Cheech, Chong, or Weed—will get a $2 ticket. The Milwaukee Admirals will also give away an autographed weed wacker.

One fan could win season tickets if the team scores with 4:20 left on the clock in any period, and the Admirals will also provide a shredder to allow fans to destroy any “embarrassing or incriminating photos.”
