Football Season Means Bacon. And Survivor League Madness!

Football season is almost upon us, and that means bacon, beers and friendship (recipe for Mac's bacon wrapped Jalapenos below).  It also means it's time for the 3rd Annual HeadBlade Survivor League Challenge! This is one of the easiest challenges we have, all you have to do is pick one winner each week, straight up.  Once you pick a team they are off limits for the rest of the season. Choose wisely!  1st place will get $100 in HeadBlade.com store credit.  2nd and 3rd will receive $50 and $25, respectively.  

ONE entry per person. Duplicates will be deleted. 

To Play: 
1. Go to the ESPN Eliminator Page
2. Click on the red "Get Started" button and sign up or sign in to ESPN
3. Click "Create or Join a Group". Our group is called "HeadBladeSurvivorLeague"
4. The password for the group is: headblade

That's it!  Don't forget to make your pick each week.  Now to the bacon!  Make these, you won't be disappointed.  This is our Operations Manager Mac's personal recipe, and was featured in Tony Caputo's "NO! I'm Watching Football: The Gridiron Grub Cookbook"

Mac's Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Peppers

Ingredients:
30 Jalapeno peppers
5 packages cream cheese, softened
2 packs basil, chopped
2 heads garlic, chopped
30 strips bacon
toothpicks

With a knife, slice the peppers below the cap down the middle, lengthwise. Remove seeds (wear gloves for this…believe us.)

Mix together cream cheese, basil and garlic.

Fill peppers with mixture (again, gloves!). Wrap one strip of bacon around each pepper and secure with toothpick. 

Grill or broil for about 40 minutes.  

Enjoy your handiwork. Delicious!

Happy 4th of July! (Office Closed/Website Always Open)

Happy 4th of July! If you're reading this that means we're probably poolside with a margarita in one hand and a bacon-wrapped hot dog in the other (Do we want onions? Duh!). Our office will be closed on Thursday, July 4th for Independence Day.  We will be back in the office bright and early Friday morning, *possibly* nursing a bit of a headache at 9AM PST.  

We love you, America.
