良い人すぎるNFLプレーヤーが大人気に 「スポーツ選手の鑑」と称賛コメントの嵐


NFLヒューストン・テキサンズのディフェンスエンド、J.J.・ワット(25歳)。タックルを決めた後に観客に向かって軍隊式の敬礼をすることでも知られる彼だが、どうやらプライベートでもナイスガイのようだ。


<mashable.com>によると、ワットの大ファンというトレイ少年がクラスメイトに「僕とワットは友達」と公言。中にはこれを信じない者もいたため、これを知ったワット自らそれを証明してあげようと、ひと肌脱いだのだ。

ワットがアップしたインスタグラムには、「やあ、僕はJ.J.・ワット。トレイと僕が友達だってことを信じてない人もいるようだけど、このタッチダウンが友情の証さ!」と言うワットの姿が。(下の画像をクリックすると動画が見られます)



トレイくんの見事なロングパスをしっかりと受け止めるワット。インスタグラムには3万3,000以上の「いいね」が集まり、

「JJってスゴい」
「トレイくんのスローも良いね」
「NFLプレーヤーの鑑だわ」
「いつまでもヒューストンにいてくれ!」
「心温まる話だね。ありがとう!」
「これこそプロスポーツ選手だ」

と、彼の人間性を称えるコメントが続々と寄せられている。

しかも、ワットの良い人エピソードはこれだけにとどまらない。昨年だけでも多忙なスケジュールの合間を縫っては、「ワットと結婚したい!」という6歳の女の子の願いを(1日だけ)叶えてあげたり、事故で四肢がマヒしてしまったファンの男の子と会ったりもしている。

昨年はAFC南地区4位と残念な成績に終わってしまったヒューストン・テキサンズ。今シーズンはワット含め、チームの活躍を期待したい。
