See that? That's what the Miami Heat is giving away to home fans at Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinals series against Indiana on Tuesday night.

The reason? In Game 4, a Heat win over the Pacers, power forward Udonis Haslem got hit in the eye, opening a laceration that required nine stitches after the game, and this bandage during it:

Now here is the commemorative bandage in action, worn Tuesday afternoon by members of the Heat's marketing staff:
