The Pittsburgh Penguins’s chase for the Stanley Cup has a new face, and it’s that of a 2-year-old.

With longtime Penguins broadcaster Phil Bourque coining the Buckle-Up-Baby phrase that has become a popular hashtag and social media subject amongst Pittsburgh fans, little Tyler Avolia has become know as the #BuckleUpBaby, and it’s easy to see why.

Avolia’s intensity at Pittsburgh games has become the subject of viral Internet fodder, with his trademark yell and double fist pump making its rounds around social media.

Tyler has had Twitter accounts made in his likeness and become a meme to describe passionate fans’ emotions. His love for the game is simply unparalleled and it shows, not only during games but at home as well.

“For Easter, we got him baseball stuff, but he’s still just interested in hockey. Everything goes back to hockey,” said Hilary Avolia told Pittsburgh’s WTAE-TV.

One could only imagine what Ty will be like when he’s older. Will his man cave be a decked out version of the makeshift rink that his mother has set up for him now in his living room? Would he turn his house into an actual igloo? The possibilities are endless, and hilarious if you think about the prospect of Ty’s intensity growing with age.

“It’s great to see a kid that young, not really prodded, who naturally embraces the game,” Bourque told WTAE.

Of course, there is a better outcome. He could channel his love into becoming an absolute prodigy of a player, which seems to be in his plans for now.

“I want to be Sidney [Crosby], mom,” he said.

You never know, he just might do so. And with the Pens reaching out to his family to offer them free playoff tickets, he’ll have that much more time to study his idol.
