Dale Earnhardt Jr. has done pretty well himself as a professional driver, but he got his shot at a new career as a football broadcaster in last night’s preseason finale between the Washington Redskins and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Earnhardt, a huge Redskins fan, was in the ESPN980 radio booth with Larry Michael, the Voice of the Redskins, and color guys Sonny Jurgensen and Sam Huff, when he was given controls of the play-by-play action.
And, wouldn’t you know it, Redskins running back Roy Helu Jr. ran 15 yards into the end zone on that very first play.
Listening to Earnhardt’s reaction is priceless. Here’s the video:
