He's back!

The traveling Minnesota Twins fan who once made headlines for shaving Joe Mauer's name and No. 7 into his back hair, jersey style, has returned to the national spotlight. This time around, he's showing his support for shortstop Brian Dozier, who on Monday night will represent the Twins during the Home Run Derby. 

When we first saw the fan in 2011 he was in Milwaukee taking in an interleague game against the Brewers. He also made an appearance at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City in 2012 reppin' Mauer. On Friday, he ventured to Coors Field to watch as the Twins fell to the Rockies 6-2. Probably not the result he was looking for, but, hey, at least his guy Dozier had a nice game with a single, double and walk.

And yes, we're 99-percent certain it's the same guy. If you can take your eyes away from his back for just long enough, you'll notice the bald spot on the back of his head. It's a little more pronounced than it was three years ago, but the pattern is evident.

Disturbing? Yes, a little.

But not everybody is blessed with the back hair of George "The Animal" Steele. At least this guy embraces what he has to work with, and in his own unique way uses it to support his favorite team.
