After months of bad press, the greatest competitive cyclist of all time has officially hit rock bottom: The Lance Armstrong Foundation has dropped the name of its eponymous creator and will now be known as the Livestrong Foundation.

Rest easy, Lance, it can't get much -- or is that any? -- worse.

About 3.30 minutes. Written by Nick Gillespie and Kennedy, and produced by Meredith Bragg.
