The last time we checked, Denver beat Carolina in the Super Bowl. But maybe Hibbett Sports knows something we don’t.

On Wednesday night, the sporting goods retailer sent out a text to those signed up for their alerts on deals congratulating the Panthers.

The text also contained a link to a page on Hibbett Sports’ website that, as of 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, was still online.

Hibbett Sports listed on their website stores that would be open with Panthers Super Bowl gear until 1 a.m.

Naturally, Twitter lit up over the mistaken text shortly after it went out.

Twitter users were also quick to point out Hibbett Sports’ grammar mistake.

“Carolina Panthers your [sic] the champs!”

Hibbett Sports tweeted out an apology at 9:47 p.m. Wednesday.
