Q: You were an english-lit major at the University of Tennessee, whats your favourite fiction novel?R. Allen Robinson Jersey .A.: Fiction, oh man its hard to pick a favourite, Ill give you a couple ones that I really like. Ill give you a classic, that I really really enjoyed growing up, A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens is one I read early on and loved it. Im a big Ernest Hemingway fan, so anything written by him. And recently, more contemporary literature, probably The Power Of One by Bryce Courtenay. And I just, I love reading, so its hard for me to pick a favourite.Q: Another tough one here, if you could have dinner with 3 authors (alive or dead) who would they be?R.A.: Oh man, 3 authors? Ok well, one would be Hemingway, (thinking) one would be Robert Frost and probably another one would be Paul, who wrote a lot books in the Bible. He wrote a lot of the new testament.Q: I couldnt help but notice that you come out to the Game of Thrones theme song. Which character in Game of Thrones would you say best resembles yourself?R.A.: (WARNING: the following answer contains SPOILERS for those who are not through the first season or first book of the Game of Thrones series) You know Im certainly a family Stark proponent. I think you know, I dont want to give anything away, but hes not on the show anymore, but Eddard Stark was kinda my guy. I liked him a lot, I was so sad when he died.(image via HBO)Q: If you had to associate the Blue Jays with one family or group from the series, who would the Blue Jays be?R.A.: Oh man, you know, it might be (thinking), it might be House Targaryen. Kind of on the outskirts a little bit, nobodys really taking them very seriously, but maybe we got some dragons (laughs).Q: If you go online there are a bunch of articles that are titled "RA Dickey: The Most Interesting Man in the World". Youve climbed mt. kilimanjaro, youve authored books. Whats the next non-baseball achievement for you that you want to accomplish?R.A.: Well, apart from just trying to be a full-time dad, which I really enjoy, Ive got four kids, so that takes up the bulk of my time. Especially since I have a major league schedule that keeps me away from home so much, so thats a big deal. But if youre talking from a hobby standpoint, Im thinking about trying to go up another mountain, maybe its base camp at everest or maybe its a peak in South America, or one of the indies or something like that.Q: So if youre the most interesting man on the Blue Jays, who is the 2nd most interesting man?R.A.: (Laughs) Well I dont know if Im the most interesting, I just think I do things that the other guys dont do. But Jose Bautista is a pretty interesting guy and Jose Reyes too. Jose Reyes, a lot of people might not know this, but hes a rapper. Hes put out a few songs, you can YouTube him. So, yeah, Jose Reyes is pretty interesting, but we got a lot of really interesting guys, just a great group of guys.(Warning: This song is NSFW)Q: Baseball players are known to have the best handshakes in sports. Over your career, who is the best handshake creator youve seen?R.A.: Ohhh, I gotta go with Jose Reyes. I played with him in New York on the Mets and I play with him here and hes got a different gyration for every guy. And some of its really creative, so hes my guy.Q: Does it ever get annoying? Are you ever thinking like cmon, lets just high five?R.A.: (Laughs) Ya, well Im kinda one of the older players, so sometimes Im kinda like an old curmudgeon. Im kinda like "Lets gooo, let me just sit down. I dont need to dance around." Q: Youre from Nashville, you gotta be a music guy. Whos the last musical artist or band youve heard that made you say, wow these guys are good?R.A.: Um (thinking), probably Mumford & Sons, I got a hold of them about a year ago for the first time for whatever reason. They have a really unique sound, but you get inundated with such great music in Nashville of every genre. And Im not necessarily a country guy, but Nashville is the country music capital of the world, so I hear great no name guys all the time. Youll just go into a local honkey-tonk somewhere in the city and youll see the next Garth Brooks. Its pretty neat.Q: Last concert you went to that wasnt for your kids?R.A.: Oh man, shoot (thinking). Last concert I went to was probably Natalie Merchant. Can you believe that? (laughs)Q: A couple of years ago, you put in your twitter bio, "ninja in training" can we get a status update on how thats going?R.A.: Oh yeah, if achieving ninjahood is like, lets say a black belt, Im about two belts underneath right now. So, Im making my way up.Q: Favourite place to eat in Toronto?R.A.: Oh man, thats tough. You know, Im a big fan of Gretzkys. Theyve got a great menu, the service is good and its like a museum in there, so Ill pick that. Ive got a lot of places that I really enjoy, but for every day dining, I like Gretzkys.Q: Have you ever gone BarDown?R.A.: Well, Ive only taken about three hockey shots my whole life. And I broke the stick on one of them because I didnt know what I was doing and the stick head flew off. And the other one, (laughing) I think I jammed my arm so hard I didnt want to pick up a hockey stick again. Mind you, I had no schooling. We have the Predators now, but you dont grow up in Nashville playing street hockey. Blake Bortles Youth Jersey .
