Lance Armstrong, the colossal cycling fraud, has been dropped by NIKE, the company announced this morning.
Due to the seemingly insurmountable evidence that Lance Armstrong participated in doping and misled Nike for more than a decade, it is with great sadness that we have terminated our contract with him. Nike does not condone the use of illegal performance enhancing drugs in any manner.
Nike plans to continue support of the Livestrong initiatives created to unite, inspire and empower people affected by cancer.
Only those with their head in the sand didn’t see this coming. Armstrong has been resolute for years about his pee being clean, but he’s now left with one option: Grovel. I anticipate hours upon hours of TV time spent today crucifying Armstrong, but who really cares? Really, who cares?
He cheated, he won, he denied cheating, all his “friends” ratted him out, and … oh, it looks like NBA TV is re-airing the Charlotte-Oklahoma City preseason game from last night, so I’ve gotta run.
