Tony Romo's ability to predict plays pre-snap took the world by storm during Sunday's AFC Championship Game on CBS. He drew a ton of praise on social media during the game and even had ESPN's Stephen A. Smith suggesting that the former Dallas Cowboys quarterback should be an NFL head coach.

MLB superstar and current free agent Bryce Harper may have composed the best tweet about Romo's prescience during the broadcast. He joked that he wants the analyst to let him know where he will sign before the season.

“Confirmed: Just called Tony Romo to see where I’m going to play next year. #YoureAWizardTony,” Harper tweeted.

Romo decided to respond to Harper and have some fun of his own. He "predicted" that Harper will sign with the Texas Rangers. "Well... looks like you’ll be playing for the Texas @Rangers opening day," Romo wrote.

The odds of this happening? Pretty unlikely, as the Rangers haven't been linked to Harper at all this offseason. Romo probably just wants to see Bryce suit up for his favorite team.

The Philadelphia Phillies, Chicago White Sox and Washington Nationals are among the teams that are in the running for the 26-year-old Harper. He'll likely sometime in the next couple of weeks.

As for Romo, he will call Super Bowl LIII on CBS with Jim Nantz on Sunday, February 3.
