Carlos Ruiz Needs a Helmet Like John Buck’s

When the Florida Marlins came to visit in mid-June, I noticed that John Buck's catchers helmet was decorated and painted to represent the Marlins, and I love it. As you can see, there's a huge Marlin on the side (he has it painted on both sides, so they surround his face) jumping out of water, with teal, aqua and other shades of blue painted on.

This makes me wonder; if Carlos Ruiz decked out his helmet/mask, what would he have painted on it? Judging by his excellent taste, his helmet would probably blow John Buck's away. Perhaps he would get some ice cream painted on? Or maybe an outline of his home country of Panama? And he cannot get his helmet customized without having "my nickname es Chooch" written on it somewhere.

What do you guys think? How should he get his helmet/mask done if he decides to do so?
