Tony Romo and his wife Candice were on hand Sunday night as Lionel Messi’s Inter Miami squad faced off against FC Dallas in a memorable MLS showdown.
While for most spectators the highlight of the evening was Messi taking the game into his own hands, again, some couldn’t help but notice an encounter that occurred between the Romo family.
Roughly 30 minutes into the outing and with Messi’s squad up by one, cameras panned over to Romo.
What followed immediately went viral.
“You’re allowed to have three U-22 players only if you have a Young Designated Player. See, if all three of your DPs are full DPs then you can only have one U-22 player. So since Miami only has two DPs used they can sign three U-22 players.” pic.twitter.com/XCvvMLtdn5

Given Romo’s status as one of the most prominent NFL broadcasters around, understandably fans had some responses.
They immediately took to social media to react.
Its like when your girl says something about sports and then you continue that thought for 45 minutes only to find out she didn’t care. Or at least thats what i hear from dudes with girls.

“They had a buyout, and you only get one… so the other guys “mutually terminated” their contracts and we paid them under the table.
You know, like we did Matuidi”

This was just the latest example of that.
Of course, the story of the night was still Messi. And the fact that, despite expectations being sky-high in the MLS for the 36-year-old, he is still doing stuff like this:
HE DID IT AGAIN.

Thanks to his two scores on Sunday night, Inter Miami advanced in the MLS League Cup this weekend.
What the future holds for them is uncertain, but it promises to be exciting no matter what.

Messi magic guarantees it.
Will Romo and his wife be in attendance at Inter Miami’s next game? Time will tell.
