Texas Gov. Greg Abbott was trying to do something nice for a local team.
The Houston Astros were leading the Kansas City Royals 6-2 heading into the eighth inning Monday, just six outs away from advancing to the American League Championship Series.
Abbott, ever the opportunist, tweeted out a congratulatory message. But he jumped the gun.
The Royals rattled off five runs in the top of the inning and another two in the ninth to beat the Astros 9-6.
The tweet has since been deleted. But don't worry, Governor—we saw it.
We also saw last week's post comparing the Dallas Cowboys' defense to the state border:
Maybe it's time to lay off Twitter for a while.
