Denny’s prides itself on being “America’s Diner,” and in typical American fashion, it doesn’t really understand how this whole World Cup thing works.
The company’s Twitter account was live-tweeting throughout the United States men’s soccer team’s 1-0 loss to Germany Thursday afternoon.
At the game’s conclusion, Denny’s posted this tweet in an attempt to sympathize with followers distraught over the U.S. loss:
Of course, there was no reason for sadness.
The United States’ loss, coupled with Portugal’s victory over Ghana, propelled the Americans into the tournament’s knockout stage with a second-place finish in Group G due to the goal differential tie-breaker.
Twitter users were quick to correct Denny’s:
Perhaps the makers of the Grand Slam will do better once the baseball playoffs roll around this fall.
