Some of you may know me, most of you probably don't. My name is Mike Henry; I've been an avid reader of Boiled Sports for a long time, and now I'm thrilled to be a part of the team. The guys already duct taped me naked to a goalpost overnight a while back, and although I lost a foot to frostbite, I think that means it's official. If that's the price to pay, then I'd be happy to do it again (but not really; I miss my foot). Before working for these dapper young men, I ran my own site (The Railroad Tie; a thank-you to the half of a dozen people who read my stuff back then) before going and writing for Jim over at the Hoosier Hoops Report. J first brought up the idea of me coming over here a couple years ago, and after a long courtship, I'm happy that it's finally coming together.
I grew up in the Indianapolis area, and I'm a huge Purdue sports fan. I'll mostly be here to write about the men's basketball team, but I may dabble in football and other things from time to time (even Caps hockey, although I'd be happy to pretend like that team doesn't exist). My goal is to provide information on recruiting, opinion pieces, and maybe I'll even get a little crazy and do some stats-based analytics. I also co-host a podcast - the Purdue Basketball Beat with Andy - that we're starting up again (in fact, we're recording our first episode in over a year next week).
Anyway, it's great to finally join this site and start writing and recording podcasts. I'm pretty active on Twitter and I check my email pretty frequently, so feel free to contact me through either medium. Boiler up!
