阿部神話も崩壊! 原巨人が交流戦に入ってから大失速の理由

交流戦に入り、巨人が苦しんでいる。パ・リーグ6チームとの対戦を一通り終え、5勝6敗1分で8位(5月30日現在。記録は以下同)。開幕ダッシュを果たした4月の勢いはどこへやら。12試合中8試合が3点以下と自慢の打線も沈黙している。


26日のオリックス戦では、原監督がエラーのあと3球三振を喫した主砲・村田修一を1回で交代させるなど荒療治を行なったものの、その効果も結びつかず、引き分け。次戦のソフトバンク戦から、村田は即スタメンに復帰したものの、2試合で8打数1安打と打てず。28日には、阿部慎之助が東京ドームで本塁打を打てば負けないという不敗神話も37連勝でストップした。
雲行きが怪しくなっている。この原因をあるスポーツライターはこう読む。

「シーズン中なのに、松井秀喜さんが次期監督になるという報道が頻繁に行なわれたことと無関係ではないでしょう。概して新監督の話が出ると、チームは低迷します。出ている選手にとっては、『今の監督が辞めたら俺はどうなるんだ?』と不安になりますし、選手以上に来年が保障されず、監督次第でコロコロ代わるコーチ陣は特に浮き足立ちますよ。

古くは94年、巨人対西武の日本シリーズ第6戦前に「西武・森監督、退任」のニュースが流れ、西武が敗れた。03年の阪神は日本シリーズ直前に、週刊誌に『星野監督、今季限り』とスクープされ、ダイエーに3勝4敗で敗れ、実際に星野監督は退任しました。記憶に新しいところでは一昨年のシーズン終盤、日本ハムが梨田監督の退任を発表すると急失速。シーズン中に次期監督の話が出ることは、チームの下降をもたらす傾向があります」

たしかに、松井秀喜氏の監督就任が現実味を帯び始めた5月5日の国民栄誉賞表彰式までは22勝8敗1分で、巨人は首位を独走。阪神に5.5ゲーム差をつけていた。しかし、それ以降7勝10敗1分と波に乗れず、2位・阪神とのゲーム差は1.5にまで縮まった。

「松井さんが悪いわけでも何でもないですし、むしろ松井さんが一番危惧していたことだと思います。だからこそ、渡邊恒雄氏や安倍首相との会食後、報道陣に聞かれても、監督就任について明言しなかったわけです」(同前)
 チームに走った動揺は収まるだろうか。

阿部神話も崩壊! 原巨人が交流戦に入ってから大失速の理由

ready to be asked, "Dude, where'd I put my beer?" a whole lot.

The party don't stop 'til you spill chicken wings all over your lap.

Aside from the cringe-worthy "Look! A six pack on my six pack!" jokes your drunk friend will undoubtedly make, just wait until she tries to tie her shoes.

If you're already this committed to drinking on the DL in public, we wouldn't be surprised if you end up thinking you're Arnold Schwarzenegger in "Junior" by the end of the night.

"DUDE YOUR BEER IS ABOUT TO SPI-- Oh, wait. It's cool."

Clever, but that remote would get lost faster than your beer. Also, encouraging people to lose track of their drinks might not be the best way to go.

A few beers later and your guests assume that you hired R2-D2 as your personal butler.

Does the night end with you trying to get this last sip of beer? Or does it BEGIN that way?

You know it's the end of the night when you start talking to your beer, but imagine what would happen if it talked back?

We'd like to see any beer actually make it into a drunk person's mouth with this product. Also, the makers ignored the obvious "Shotgun" pun opportunity. What a shame.

Not included: replacement iPod for when it falls into the ice water.

If you're already sitting on the ground, you've maybe had enough beer.

"DUDE YOU SPILLED BEER ON YOUR PHO-- Oh, wait. It's cool."

Have one too many and leaning over results in a waterfall of beer on your carpet. Sorry, mom!

"Have you seen my drugs? I mean my beer. I mean my bottle of beer. I mean my can of beer in a bottle of drugs."


All's well until your drunk friend tries to spin his "gun" around his finger.

You know a drunk person is just going to hold the can and have the gun part sticking out all night.

This might not confuse a drunk person, but the name "Shaft Cooler" will definitely make them giggle.
