Q&A with Raymond

Q: What are you?
A: I'm a Raymond! To be more specific, I'm an "Underdawg." We're a type of dog that's native only to the Gulf of Mexico. Most of the time we live underwater, but I've been up on land for over eight years now. By the way, I like getting my belly rubbed, but watch out for my fleas.

Q: What did you want to be when you grow up?
A: A fire-fighting-astronaut-cowboy who plays shortstop for the Tampa Bay Rays!

Q: What was your favorite experience with the team?
A: Traveling to Japan to open the 2004 MLB season. There's nothing better than having the world watch you beat the Yankees!

Q: Where do you live?
A: I have a very nice room at Tropicana Field. It has an XXXXL sized doggy door and all the squeaky toys I can handle.

Q: Is it hot in there?
A: In where? My jersey? Who are you? Nelly?

Q: Do a flip!
A: That's not a question, it's a command. I am not a trained monkey, even though I smell like one too.

Q: Do you have a girlfriend?
A: Are you asking me out?
