History of the Boudon Family
The origins of the Boudon Family can be traced all the way back to the days of the FOB Posse, a group of friends in which David Nguyen and Huan Le were members.
It was during a heated conversation about the game Diablo II that the name Boudin appeared. Boudin was the name of a mercenary that could be purchased in town within the game. Boudin is also seasoned rice with pork stuffed into a sausage wrapper which is a favorite at family cookouts. It was a collaboration between Anthony and Donald at the local Olive Garden that the family was bought to fruition. Boudin, although a great snack, did not project the right feel for the name of the newly founded group. Boudon was spun from it's origin Boudin. The choice of picking the Don of The Boudon Family was easy since Anthony was already seated at the head of the table. He also had connections with both the Seniors and Juniors and was a perfect candidate for the position of Godfather of The Boudon Family. He has presided as Godfather of The Boudon Family since 2001.
The height of The Boudon Family was realized when the original www.theboudonfamily.com website appeared. The forum was a hit right at the beginning with Jumil first to reach 1000 posts. It was a forum which Boudons and Non-Boudons could come to discuss pressing matters, such as who was whipped and who was not. Although many memories were made the website met its demise in 2004. There were many members that posted, as many as 300 different user names.
