We can’t make these things up.
The World Series has taken center stage in the baseball world, but elsewhere in the universe, there are darker forces at play.
Erstwhile popular band Smash Mouth and the Oakland Athletics organization got in a Twitter fight last night.
There are no good Smash Mouth puns to make here, or hackneyed Moneyball references, this is just some stuff that can only be best presented with very little context.
Smash Mouth started it (after ex-Athletic Coco Crisp got a hit in the World Series) and the A’s swooped in and basically finished it.
The A's are a joke, good for CC!— Smash Mouth (@smashmouth) October 29, 2016
You're not? BillyBall Bullsh*t!— Smash Mouth (@smashmouth) October 29, 2016
IT KEEPS GOING.
You guys made ZERO key additions last off season. Same this off-season? You have great fans,come on give them something!— Smash Mouth (@smashmouth) October 29, 2016
Not even reliever Sean Doolittle could convert the save.

Just last year? Not saying you should expect a World Series but this team is doing stuff way too cheap!— Smash Mouth (@smashmouth) October 29, 2016
These two were made for each other, really.
No hard feelings just rep theBay better. They have some of the most loyal fans!— Smash Mouth (@smashmouth) October 29, 2016
UPDATE: After Smash Mouth continued to tweet about the A’s, the Athletics have apologized.
I hate the internet.
