|The BS staff working to build something|
When we launched Boiled Sports on November 6, 2006, our Boilers were only two years removed from the fumble debacle versus Wisconsin, Joe Tiller was still Purdue's head coach and the "Baby Boilers" were not yet toddling onto campus. The St. Louis Cardinals had just won the World Series (weird), Boiledowd had a full, bushy head of hair, and Tim still posted here. It was like a magic land.
Since then, we've all aged a bit more, entire classes have come and gone from Purdue, and the Boiled Sports child count has increased by 3 (in addition to the overgrown children who run this site).

|Playing well with others?|
As a result of our sometimes abrasive nature, we've made some.... non-friends. I don't want to say enemies because this is only opinion-writing we're doing here. In the end, ours is no more valuable than anyone else's. And we really mean that.
We've also made some friends -- virtual friends -- who we love to death. Those of you who get us and give it right back, who appreciate our bratty humor and give it back....we seriously love you guys and girls. Some of these friends aren't even Boilers, per se, but we've formed a bond with them due to being like-minded wise-asses.
I try to remember to thank you all each year around this time and this year is no different. We started this site because we all used to email one another multiple times a week with our thoughts on Purdue sports, as well as other things, that were rattling around in our heads. We kept an email string going usually for months at a time and it got us to consider the possibility that maybe we should make these thoughts more widely available -- especially considering the (at the time) seeming dearth of Purdue sports outlets. That's how BS was born. How it has evolved to where it is now is something we're still frequently (and humbly) amazed at.
Thanks very much for reading, listening and caring -- about Purdue and about what we have to say. It's flattering and we will continue to do our best to make stopping at our particular Uniform Resource Locator.
