A video clip of a 2-year-old hockey fan reacting to a score is taking the Internet by storm.

The young Pittsburgh Penguin fan attended a recent game and his priceless response to a goal was captured by an in-house camera, according to the local ABC affiliate WTAE.

And the rest, as the saying goes, is history.

The intensity seen from Tyler Avolia, who goes by “Ty,” is genuine, according to his mom.

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

Ty is now associated with the Twitter hashtag, #BuckleUpBaby —  a saying coined by Penguins radio broadcaster Phil Bourque during a game and now used as a catch-phrase by the team.

The tyke loves to play hockey at home and even starts each imaginary game with the national anthem. What’s not to like about that?
