Diego Maradona Watch: Today's Meal Will Be Meat Metaphors

Diego Maradona, potentially insane coach of the Argentine soccer team, presents his own quote of the day because madness takes no sponsor and needs none.

“Argentines should relax because to beat this team our rivals will have to put all their beef on the grill.”

Hear that, opponents of Argentina? All the meat must go on the grill to beat Argentina. You think this is metaphor, but Maradona means it literally. Take a bunch of meat, put it on a grill, and you’ll distract him because you may staple the stomach, but you can never tame the appetite. He will then wander off the field and eat until satisfied, but whether this would improve or worsen Argentina’s chances in the Cup is a topic worthy of some debate.
