Flyer News: As juniors, how did you get such a good location in the ghetto?
Ryan Berry: We got priority housing because we’re on the baseball team.
Ray Stallings: So we got to chose two or three houses we wanted to get before everyone else.
Spencer Rohr: We had a house on Lowes first, but then went in and saw it was tiny, so we changed to this house.
Robby Sunderman: We were pretty lucky to get priority housing. One of the perks to being an athlete I guess.
FN: What are differences in the house dynamic between baseball season and the offseason?
RST: Well, we are home a lot more. When we are in season, it is very rare that all six of us will be in the house at the same time because we all have class and practice at different times.
Michael Miller: And we can have parties.
RS: In season we’re gone a lot for games, and we tend to be a little bit more quiet on the weekends. But out of season in the fall, we’re just like any other house in the Ghetto.
FN: Does living together impact how you play together?
SR: We know each other better, so we trust each other more and rely on each other.
RST: Yeah, it definitely helps with chemistry.
RB: There are no negative side effects to living together, unless you have a terrible game and you don’t want to talk about it.
MM: Then you can’t escape it.
SR: Except when you live with Ray.
RST: Or when you live with Spencer.
RS: You definitely want to see your roommates do well when they play. It makes for a much happier house after the games.
FN: What does a typical Saturday night look like at 421?
RST: Just hanging out here with our team. A lot of the guys usually come over.
RB: In season we play a lot of “Blitz.”
RST: Out of season we hang out a lot on the stoop, our front porch, socializing and conversing with our fellow Ghetto neighbors.
MM: We like to go to Tim’s on Saturday.
RS: Come on over and see for yourself.
FN: Do you guys have any house rules?
MM: No, we honestly don’t.
RB: I’m sure we have some.
MM: Do we? I don’t think so.
RB: Yeah, we do. You can’t throw any clothes in Spencer’s room.
RST: Don’t get crumbs in my butter.
RB: If there is cheese or eggs in the fridge they are fair game, and Mel never has to clean.
SR: Yeah, that’s bull—-.
RB: Girls can’t poop in the bathroom.
RS: Don’t sit in the blue lazy boy chair. That’s Ray’s chair.
FN: What is one word that would describe 421 Kiefaber?
SR: The baseball house.
RST: Dirty, about 70 percent of the time.
SR: Yeah, when you don’t pick your s— up.
MM: Our house is inviting.
RST: It’s pretty rambunctious.
FN: Any last words?
RST: We’ve got a lot of games coming up in the spring, it would be nice to get some fellow Flyers out there to watch the baseball team. We don’t get very many fans in the stadium.
SR: And anyone can stop by.
RB: Yeah, Flyers are always welcome.
