Dale Jr. bought an old NES game off eBay, it arrived in a comically large box

Today we found out Dale Jr. likes to go old school for his video gaming.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. is just like the rest of us. He puts his pants on one leg at a time, drives himself to work and likes to unwind by playing video games. That said, this Tweet raises a lot of questions on our end.

  1. What thought process preceded Dale Jr. searching eBay for a copy of the 1987 NES classic Double Dribble?
  2. Is this how the eBay seller always ships his/her products, or was the overly-careful packaging a product of seeing "Dale Earnhardt Jr." on the shipping label?
  3. Did the seller believe they were shipping to Little E, or think it was a fake name?
  4. Not so much a question, but Dale should have really held out for this triple-pack of Double Dribble, Football, and Jack Nicklaus Golf that's selling for $9.99.
  5. The "always solid comedy" line has us believing that eBay purchases are a common thing for Dale Jr. We really need to know what else he's bought. Do we think he's re-selling items on the side?
