Not long after the Panthers lost to the Broncos in Super Bowl 50, the New York Mets directed a tweet to the teams.

The message to the Panthers basically was to “keep your head up.”

As you know, the Mets were beaten by the Royals in the World Series last fall, so New York could empathize with how the Panthers were feeling.

On Monday morning, the Panthers recalled that the Royals lost the 2014 World Series and won it all the following season.

The Royals answered with a message that fans in Kansas City know is true:

Wait. The redemption part was cool, but the Royals wished Carolina good luck in winning the Super Bowl next year? Their neighbors at the Truman Sports Complex took note.

The Royals did try to make amends.

It’s all in good fun, right?

Sometimes you have to love social media for allowing teams from different professional sports leagues to have a conversation that we can all listen in on.
