The former NFL quarterback-turned-soothsayer delivered some magic.
Tony Romo's football knowledge was on fire during Super Bowl LIII. And the former Cowboys gunslinger stepped into the booth already on fire.
In 13 seasons in the NFL, Romo never managed the reach the Super Bowl, but showed more than some appreciation for his opportunity to be at the championship game in person.

Romo: I've been waiting to hear "welcome to the Super Bowl my whole life."
Romo off to a strong start.
Then, once the game got started, Romo the Prophet began to show off his soothsayer skills.
