LOOK: Rockies troll ESPN over Twitter slight

Those who run the Colorado Rockies Twitter account are not afraid to have some fun. On Tuesday, they did just that with ESPN.

It started with ESPN, who wrote a nice letter for a fan hoping to get out of class to watch Tuesday’s National League Wild Card Game against the Chicago Cubs.

It’s a nice gesture. There’s just one problem. The Rockies aren’t ending a nine-year postseason drought. While it wasn’t a long stay, Colorado was in the playoffs in 2017.

Fortunately, the two seemed to have hashed things out.

Given that ESPN is broadcasting the Wild Card Game, we think they probably should have known this before. But everyone does, indeed, make mistakes.

All’s well that ends well.
