HAZELWOOD, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

David Backes turned the rallying cry of #RoarBacon into an actual mascot when he brought a live pig into the Blues locker room Friday.

Backes brought the pig to Friday’s practice at the Ice Zone at the St. Louis Outlet Mall. In a video released by the team, the pig, which was wearing a Blues outfit, was brought in, allowed to walk around, and was shown to other players and kids.

#RoarBacon became a rallying cry and trending topic on Twitter during the Blues 6-5 comeback win over the Blackhawks Wednesday night. Shortly after Backes tied the game at 5-5, the team’s Instagram account posted: Well that was something. #OurBlues roar bacon with three second-period goals to tie the game 5-5. #STLvsCHI.”

The Blues won after erasing a 5-2 deficit.

Auto correct changed roar back to roar bacon and didn’t take long for the #RoarBacon to become a trending topic on Twitter.
