Is it just me or does the newest Nike commercial (orchestral warmup played over many sportspeople readying for competition) seem to capture the essence of sport? I like that both amateurs and professionals are both shown in the video clips.

My non-sport inclined daughter thinks I am a nut, but that spot seems to capture why we do what we do.

I gotta say I LOVE that commercial. Some versions even have Lance in it.
I like it a lot, especially Lance's 10 nanoseconds. (nm)terry b

The two or three second clip of Lance in the Nike Commercial was from the starting gate at the 2001 TdF opening prologue.

Whoopee.

That Nike ad beats the hell out of the Gatorade ad with people sweating and vomiting lime-green Technicolor Gatorade. Same concept, but not as disgusting.
Any place you can download it? nmandrossmazor
