Being that I exist in torrid forever love affair with food and am a complete Masterchef nerd, many of my impromptu folksy remarks and metaphors in conversation revolve around yummies. One of my go-to's is a verbal concoction where I explain pissing someone(s) off as if you prepared otherwise fine food for them with an entirely improper cooking method. To grill someone's beans (or steam their rib-eye, nuke their scallop, whatever) may be cruel... but it would sure be hilarious given the right circumstance.
And then along comes Dom Dwyer.
But do you know what would be even better than the sudden Sporting KC ace pulling on a USMNT shirt three years from now? Him pulling on an England shirt as a non-Beckham coming out of MLS sooner than that.
Seriously, what is more fun in soccer than making a Brit begrudgingly respect and rely on something coming from America? And if Dwyer actually became a regular with the Three Lions, those beans would stay grilled - if you know what I mean.
