Spurs fans engraved the team’s logo on a jalapeno, for some reason

When it comes to the heat (and the Heat), Spurs fans say bring it on. As San Antonio prepares to face Miami in Game 3 tonight, some Spurs fanatics will top their nachos with a very spirited jalapeno pepper.

MySanAntonio.com writes:

“Christian Silva, a student at St. Philips College, and his family put their laser engraver to work this weekend and created a piece of memorabilia that any Spurs (or pepper) fan would crave. Silva, 20, said his father, Humberto, who has taken up engraving different objects as a hobby, got the spicy idea while barbecuing Sunday before Game 2.”

“I was at work and received a picture message from my dad of the jalapeño with the words ‘puro San Antonio!’ ” Christian Silva told MySanAntonio. “It had me cracking up!”

Now it will have him and Silva eating up. MySanAntonio reports the Spurs pepper ended up in a salsa.

“Hopefully eating this hot pepper will help the Spurs devour the Heat in the Finals,” Silva said.

The Spurs-Miami series is currently tied 1-1.
