R.A. Dickey hung out in a fighter jet at a Canadian air show, entered 'The Danger Zone'
Ironically, knuckleball pitcher R.A. Dickey has the need ... the need for speed.
Dickey recently stopped by the Canadian National Exhibition on a Blue Jays off-day to hang out with some pilots and sit in an F-18 that will be on display at the Canadian International Air Show in Toronto.
A Canadian news crew caught up with the knuckleballer, who was simply in awe of the machine.
Ha, the knuckleballer said "controlling something that's seemingly uncontrollable." No wonder he likes jets. Also, "another route" is a very polite way to talk about your career, especially when you've got a Cy Young Award on your mantel.
