What you missed while apologizing for all the tech issues yesterday ...
• World Baseball Classic: Canada wins over the United States 8-6. Even long after the Winter Olympics, U.S. still on thin ice.
• NBA: Hornets return to New Orleans, but Kobe spoils the party, as he is wont to do.
• NHL: Another shootout. An "illegal stick." Kovalchuk's 40th goal. Thrashers beat Rangers, and you gotta love hockey (in many states, it's the law).
