Duncan Keith Celebrated Blackhawks Title by Sticking His Baby in the Stanley Cup

Gabe Zaldivar@gabezalPop Culture Lead WriterJune 25, 2013

It's the NHL offseason, which means it's time for the champions to fill the Stanley Cup with wild and wonderful things. First up: Duncan Keith's baby.

For The Win's Tim McGarry collected a few tweets from the jubilant celebration that took place after a raucous Game 6.

One of the more memorable images was the defenseman taking his baby around the ice, sharing in the championship spoils with his son Colton, who was born barely six weeks ago.

As this tweet from NBC Sports shows, Colton wasn't having the best of times.

In fact, it looks like he would rather find a nice comfy bed than this hard "Cup" his dad is putting him into. Still, something tells me Colton is going to be all smiles when he is old enough to understand the historic trophy he once used as a recliner.

Here is a tweet from ESPN's Pierre LeBrun showing dad and his baby boy, giving us all we need to know that Keith is having one amazing year.

Sporting News then brought us this awesome side-by-side comparison of two champions sharing their moment of victory with their kids.

Drew Brees' baby is having the time of his life at the Super Bowl. On the flip side, Colton is pretty frustrated with those noise-canceling headphones.

Not to worry, kid, because things are going to get better.

Soon your dad will fill that Stanley Cup with beer, cereal or whatever else comes to mind. Yes, Keith will be in a very good mood for the remainder of the summer.

So will the rest of the Blackhawks, who are about to take that famous trophy on a worldwide tour of excess.

Still, no player can top anything as adorable as Colton residing in the Stanley Cup for a brief moment, but it's going to be fun to watch Keith's colleagues try.

Let's keep the party going on Twitter
