Thor makes the Times

"Anne Putz, Reebok's head of corporate public relations, said in a statement that the company does not prohibit its athletes from expressing personal opinions. Reebok sponsors the Norwegian cyclist Thor Hushovd, who announced last week that he may boycott the Olympic opening ceremony to protest the Chinese crackdown on Tibetans. 'We support our athletes 100 percent on the field, providing them with the best products to help them achieve their goals,' Ms. Putz said. 'Off the field, we never influence our athletes about their personal views.'"

---Today's NYT, article starting on A1.

Whether or not 'Anne Putz' is a real person or an April Fools' joke, it's nice to see lutfisk-eater and former green jersey Hushovd in the paper of record.
