From The Marbles

We now know why Dale Earnhardt Jr. isn't a basketball player

Dale Earnhardt Jr. did not have height on his side as a kid.

Junior posted a picture of his basketball team at the Oak Ridge Military Academy. Both he and his sister Kelley attended the school in the 1980s.

Yes, that's Junior on the far left, the shortest one in the frame. We may be reaching here, but we're guessing he didn't play in the post. He did have a growth spurt later in life, he's listed at 6-feet tall.

The Skee-Lo lyrics are just as good as the photo though. "I Wish" was such a staple of grade school.
