What's bad news for Portland is good news for Dallas. Because this morning, word's come down that Adidas America Inc. is reorganizing its operations and laying off some 25 employees from the German-based company's U.S. headquarters. Says Adidas America President Patrik Nilssen, "A number of Portland and field-based roles were repositioned or eliminated to enable our resources to be placed where they can be more effective." And, turns out, some of those resources will be placed in New York, Chicago and, yup, Dallas, where Adidas will open a regional office. Though how many new jobs we'll get remains, for the time being, "unspecified." --Robert Wilonsky
