Lance Armstrong Nike commercials now filled with irony

Nike announced this morning that they had terminated their sponsorship of Lance Armstrong in response to doping allegations. Now, we can look back on all of his self-righteous "I'm not 'on' anything except my bike and how DARE you indicate otherwise" ads:

You can just HEAR the arrogance in his voice.  

Let's watch how hard he works:

I still think it's amazing that he beat cancer and raised a gajillion dollars for it.  I feel bad that his illegal doping is inevitably overshadowing it.  Nike pulled the plug for self-interest purposes only, but as I tweeted earlier, if they really don't want to be affiliated with athletes using illegal substances, they won't be able to endorse very many.
