It must be hard to find time when you are Chris Ryndak. This UB senior is double majoring in English and Legal Studies, writing for the Spectrum and a Buffalo sports blog titled “The Gooses Roost” on WNYMedia.net, while also working at UBMicro. With all of this activity filling Chris’ life, he still finds time to assistant coach a soccer team at the Kenan center in Lockport, his hometown.
“I’m a soccer coach, but I hate kids” he stated in a recent interview.
An incident with a certian player may have built up this perspective, as his team was playing a game down 6-1 when a player missed an open net. The frustration of not scoring got the best of this young player as he then kicked and punched the goal post. Cursing himself for missing, the ref gave him a red card and was ejected from the game. The players continuing rage then persisted to the bench, kicking water bottles and ignoring Coach Ryndak’s requests to sit and calm down. The ref was forced to even eject the player from the building. The player was kicked out of the next game, a playoff game in which they eventually lost.
When asked about his career plans he says, “I have no idea”. Journalism or not, he hopes he finds “satisfaction in whatever it is I do”.
