Ryan: Well I support teams based on success so the Real Salt Lake is my favorite team. If you haven't heard of them it's because they're a soccer team and they won the championship a couple years ago.
RHB: Interesting. Your brother Mike was a captain when you were a freshman. How was it being on the same team as your bro?
Ryan: Good question. It was great. I played with him in highschool and we made it to the semi finals so I was hoping we would make it further than that, but we didn't. He is most of the reason why I came here so I'm glad it worked out.
RHB:Your nickname on the team is “The Vaccuum”. Tell us about that?
Ryan: It’s not my nickname
RHB: Well, it is after this interview. With “The Greatest Snow On Earth” over in Utah, Why Colorado?
The Vacuum: Came here to get out of the snow. Yeah we still get a few storms, but in highschool I wouldn't have home games until April. Luckily we have a long Christmas break so I can get my skiing in then.
RHB: Best thing about playing lacrosse for CU?
The Vacuum: Most of my friends are on the team.
RHB: Best thing about Boulder?
The Vacuum: 300ish days of sunshine.
RHB: And the worst thing?
The Vacuum: Nice weather makes it hard to study...oh and the hippies.
RHB: If you could wake up anywhere tomorrow where would it be?
The Vacuum: I heard Italy is pretty cool. Wouldn't mind waking up there maybe on the Mediterranean.
RHB: If you could have anything happen by the end of the day what would it be?
The Vacuum: My red hot buffs pocket T would get here.
RHB: Don't we all. Thanks for your time Ryan.
The Vacuum: Thanks.
