The St. Louis Blues have a new pig friend who pooped in the coach's office

Meet "Piggy Smalls."

The St. Louis Blues have a new pig friend, and his name is "Piggy Smalls."

It all started with an honest mistake on Instagram. On Wednesday, the St. Louis Blues' Instagram account accidentally wrote the words "roar bacon" in a caption, celebrating a goal that tied a match against the Blackhawks (they would later win 6-5.) Presumably, they meant to say "roar back":

Well that was something.#OurBlues roar bacon with three second-period goals to tie the game 5-5.#STLvsCHI

Fans took notice and jokingly started using #RoarBacon on social media. Rather than correcting their mistake, the Blues decided to embrace #RoarBacon.

And that's why, on Friday, Blues captain David Backes brought a pig to the locker room, as seen in the video above.

The pig allegedly (and unsurprisingly) took a dump in coach Ken Hitchcock's office:

For his part, Hitchcock wouldn't confirm if the poop came from the pig or his players, but it definitely smelled like poop:

To quote The Notorious B.I.G.: "And if you don't know, now you know."
