「いいね!」信者のネット民は長嶋茂雄と松井秀喜を見習え!「頑張る私」は見せなくていい

5月5日、長嶋茂雄氏(77)と松井秀喜氏(38)の国民栄誉賞表彰式が東京ドームで行なわれた。プロ野球を国民的人気のあるスポーツに成長させ、「ミスタープロ野球」と呼ばれた長嶋茂雄氏。そして、その長嶋氏に育てられ、巨人の4番として活躍した松井秀喜氏の久々の揃い踏みに、ファンは酔いしれた。


92年秋のドラフトで、長嶋監督が松井を引き当てると、「4番・1000日構想」をブチ上げた。松井が一軍に定着した2年目以降、長嶋監督は試合前になると必ず松井を呼び、素振りを繰り返させた。ときには、自宅で寝ている松井に電話を掛け、長嶋監督の自宅地下室やホテルのスイートルームで素振りを行なうこともあったという。

この努力が実を結び、松井は押しも押されぬ球界のスラッガーに成長した。
だが、2人とも、極秘練習を重ねていることなど、おくびにも出さなかった。 松井氏が巨人を去り、メジャーに行く際に、初めてこの事実が明らかになったのだ。

それに引きかえ、現代の日本人はどうだろうか。

フェイスブックやツイッターで、「仕事で今日も残業」「休日なのに会社に来ている」などと書き込み、"頑張ってますアピール"をする。挙げ句の果てには、大して誇れないことを声高に自慢し、ときには人の名言を引用し、あたかも自分が言ったかのように振る舞う。
たしかに仕事をしている姿をさらけ出し、「いいね!」ボタンを押されれば、気持ちは満たされるし、「あの人は頑張っているな」と感じる人もいることだろう。

もちろん、キチンと働いているのに評価されない不遇な人は数え切れないほど存在するだろうし、ゴールデンウイークに出勤すれば誰だって、「俺は頑張ってるんだ! わかってくれ!!」と理解を求めたくなる。 

だが、"頑張ってますアピール"をすればするほど、その姿は滑稽なものに映ってしまうことも覚えておいたほうがいいだろう。

かつて、長嶋茂雄はこう話していた。

「ぼくは、プロなら"陰の苦労"とか"苦悩"といったものは、決して人前ではみせるべきではないという主義」
「努力してますと練習を売りものにする選手は、プロフェッショナルとはいえない」

お金をもらって仕事をしている以上、我々もプロである。フェイスブックやツイッターで、必要以上に"頑張ってます"と自慢することは、恥ずかしいことなのだ。実際、本当に仕事を頑張っていれば、結果が出ているはずだし、わざわざ書き込む余力など残っていない。

長嶋茂雄と松井秀喜の国民栄誉賞受賞は、いつからか"努力してますアピール"ばかりするようになってしまった日本人に、「頑張ってます自慢=恥じるべきこと」という一つの警句を与えてくれたのではないか。

When Kelly saw the cover art for her 'All I Ever Wanted' CD, she didn't recognize herself! "It’s very colorful and they have definitely Photoshopped the crap out of me but I don’t care. haha! Whoever she is, she looks great,” Clarkson wrote on her blog at the time.

Jennifer Hudson had much fuller figure back when she released her first solo CD. But in a recent interview with Dateline, Hudson recalls feeling shocked when she glimpsed her body on the album's cover. "It was like, 'Where is the rest of me?' They photoshopped me probably to the size I'm now on that cover, but we all know I was nowhere near that. Why would you Photoshop that?"

Take a closer look at Adam's debut CD cover. Notice anything missing? Yeah, that would be his left shoulder!

Madonna's a huge fan of photoshop - this much we know. The 53-year-old singer typically uses the image altering program to smooth out her wrinkles -- as she did on this album cover. But can we talk about the odd proportions of her body? The torso-to-arm ratio is just off ... in fact, Madge's pose looks downright painful!

Britney Spears was dealing with one of the darkest times in her life when 'Circus' hit stores. The star had put on considerable weight and was dealing with various mental problems that altered her physical and emotional well being. However, looking at the album art, you could never tell! The photo is so altered it looks less like a pic and more like a painting!

We love Mariah's luscious curves. Too bad whoever Photoshopped the cover of her album 'Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel,' isn't a fan. Just check out what they did to her waist in the middle shot -- it's not human!

In real life, nothing much about Heidi Montag's body is real, so why should her album artwork be any different?! However, the artist who retouched 'Sex Ed' went a little overboard when working on Heidi's face. The reality star's eyes were moved so close together she looks a bit, well, cross-eyed.

Around the time Jessica released her 2010 holiday album, the singer had begun to take some heat for her expanding curves. Perhaps that's why whoever Photoshopped the CD cover blew out the brightness, thus hiding her rounder face and part of her body!
