Armstrong dropped by Nike, quits Livestrong

Armstrong dropped by Nike, quits Livestrong Fascinatingly high amount of traffic in the web from non-sports centric sites about that move. Seemingly, more than when the USADA announced their findings.

Yellow bracelets are really popular (did they spawn the whole rubber bracelet thing?) and Livestrong is a big mover and shaker in the cancer fund-raising world. Having the face of Livestrong step down is fairly big deal to the non-sports audience for that reason, no?

Love for the sport...literally.

SportsCenter is the absolute best. A cursory one-minute (maybe 30 second?) segment on the only baseball game to actually be played today and then a good 7 or so minutes of A-Rod for the main story at the top of the program.
