Panthers cite Royals as inspiration, then things get awkward

Who you rootin' for Royals?

The Royals have really been stepping up their social media game lately, but things got a bit awkward today following the Super Bowl. It all began when the Mets offered condolences on Twitter to their fellow runners-up, the Carolina Panthers:

The Carolina Panthers know their baseball history, because they cited the Kansas City Royals, who were runners-up in the 2014 World Series, but came back the next year to win the championship, as inspiration.

The Royals decided to chime in, acknowledging the tip of the cap.

But uhhh, Royals, don't wish them too much good luck. You're kind of spoken for.

The Royals try to save the relationship.
