Mets Owner Steve Cohen Has Worst Food Take Ever

Warning: Keep New York Mets owner Steve Cohen away from your team, and away from the kitchen.

After splitting a two-game series with the NL East-leading Philadelphia Phillies in London over the weekend, you'd think the billionaire owner would be happy to get back to New York after taking one from the team with the best record in baseball. Or maybe not. 

Prior to the Mets win on Sunday, Cohen addressed the local media and, while talking about how much he loves London, made an outrageous claim. 

"I think the food here is fantastic," Cohen said. "I think it's better than New York." 

Stick to your 28-36 team, there, Steve-o!

Mets Owner Disparages New York Food

"[When I was playing golf at Sunningdale ] they had these sausages at the midway house that was awesome. A little Coleman's mustard, a little white bread to wrap it around in… delicious!"

Steve - even Londoners (is that what they call themselves) don't brag about their bland, tasteless and downright boring food. "Let's get some Fish and Chips!" said no hungry person ever. I'd rather have a bacon egg and cheese bagel from the most bootleg, broken down bodega than have a ‘stew roast.' Just when I thought Michael Scott from The Office had the worst take ever with his ‘Sbarro’s is the best pizza' Steve Cohen has to come and always be at the top. 

The only logical explanation for Cohen's England-praising food take is that he must be in the running to buy one of their soccer teams. Oh, I'm sorry - "football" teams. 

Quick, somebody check his bank transactions! Actually, don't - we don't need another potential SEC investigation.
