Late in the third period of a 4-2 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers, New York Rangers defenseman Michael Del Zotto suffered a cut after was hit in the face by a puck that deflected off of his own stick.

As he was being tended to on the ice by the Rangers' trainers, a couple of Flyers fans decided they would heckle him and tell him -- repeatedly -- to "get up, baby."

And a couple of other versions that aren't necessarily fit to print.

You can hear the clearest taunts around the 27-second, 30-second, and 34-second marks and, well, throughout the length of the clip.

I'm not going to single out Philadelphia sports fans here because something like this can easily happen -- and does happen -- in any city as every fan base has its share of morons like this.
