Per NESN, Jonny Gomes equates winning the World Series to filet mignon. He said that once you get the first taste, you want more.
“I’ll tell you what, we’re the champs and we have to defend that belt,” Gomes told the Boston Herald’s Scott Lauber. “From No. 1 to No. 100-something in the organization, everyone knows that. Everyone wants to see the huge offseason acquisitions, but we just won the World Series with nobody in the top 10 of the MVP [voting] or in the top 10 of the Cy Young.
“My wife was just asking, ‘How do people still keep the drive once you win one?’ I was like, ‘You don’t know how good a filet mignon is if you never had one. You have that first one, now it’s all you want to eat.’”
That's a pretty accurate description, I'd say. Filet mignon is delicious, and so is winning a World Series championship. It's a good comparison to make, I would say. Another comparison that would fit would be lobster for me, my personal favorite. But, like I said, filet mignon works just as well.
