Championship Sunday: Hey look, it's Michael Cuddyer mixed with Eric Decker

In preparation for the NFL's Championship Sunday, former Minnesota Twins and current Colorado Rockies outfielder Michael Cuddyer is embracing his connection to the only two pro teams he has played for.

It's truly a beautiful sight; Cuddyer has dressed as former Minnesota Gophers wide receiver Eric Decker, who currently plays for the Denver Broncos.

Cuddyer's ability to seamlessly blend in and adopt the culture that he resides in is truly spectacular. Was he a Bronco fan before he moved to Colorado? Did he like the Gophers when he was here? Does he know that he is paying homage to Minnesota and Denver with the outfit?

We choose to think that he knows exactly what he is doing and that he is the same great guy we remember. We also love the fact that he has a framed montage of Twins gear in the background, showing that, despite being in Colorado, he still has a place in his heart for the place he played the first 11 years of his pro career.

Go Eric Cuddyer, or Michael Decker, or whoever this collage of former Minnesota greatness truly is.
