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:
Congrats @Broncos. @Panthers we've been there. #Mets ⚾️ pic.twitter.com/tnq1VUOjcX— New York Mets (@Mets) February 8, 2016
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.
So have the @Royals. We'll be back. #KeepPounding https://t.co/9jlR9YGzk0— Carolina Panthers (@Panthers) February 8, 2016
The Royals decided to chime in, acknowledging the tip of the cap.
.@Panthers Redemption makes it that much sweeter. Good luck! pic.twitter.com/SoGHubnZic— Kansas City Royals (@Royals) February 8, 2016
But uhhh, Royals, don't wish them too much good luck. You're kind of spoken for.

The Royals try to save the relationship.
