Yeah you should be able to bend it back
Just get a well lighted area and a maginifying glass if you have one, and a set of tweezers and take it real slow and careful and it should be fine

hah! that's nothin' I ripped two of my pins completely out because the freakin heatsink was so badly stuck to the processor. I managed to get some really low gauge, solid copper wire and make little replacement pins until I decide if I want to make a warranty claim or not
maybe increasing the resistance on those two pins is what makes this chip overclock so much

EDIT: errm high gauge aka thin wire...

Well I've heard AS5 doesn't stick as much which would be nice...that Athlon 64's have such a huge heatspeader though I'd imagen even the white silicon crap creates somesort of seal and it sticks to it...
