Arguably the most famous NASCAR driver on the circuit, Dale Earnhardt Jr., revealed his favorite sports teams today and guess what, there were no Philadelphia teams listed. Shocker.
But he's a fan of a few teams who clash with Philadelphia regularly.
Earnhardt Jr. is apparently (I say apparently because I didn't realize it) a big Redskins fan and is also an Atlanta Braves fan - two division rivals of our beloved Eagles and Phillies. Since "Junior" did not list an NHL team, the Flyers chimed in and offered their services.
Someone mentioned that South Jersey NASCAR driver Martin Truex Jr. would go to a Flyers game with him, Earnhardt Jr. quipped that he "can't do sporting events with Truex" because "he likes the Eagles."
So for all of you Eagles fans who are also "Junior" fans, it looks like you have a bit of a conundrum on your hands.
