Kanata, ON. -- My 2012 NHL All-Star Weekend has officially begun. I arrived in Ottawa this afternoon and I'm trying to take as much of it all in as I possibly can before heading over to the All-Star Fantasy Draft.

It seems at least like there is a good buzz around the city and that the fans here in Ottawa are excited about all of the events going on this week. Even on the way from the airport to our hotel, you could see all the banners hanging off the street light poles advertising the All-Star Game. It's definitely going to be a fun event and I'm sure the fans are looking forward to it too.

Demi Moore is out of the hospital. She was released Thursday after a three-night stay to recover from, well, any number of ailments or drugs, depending on what gossip blog you believe.

They are convinced Greg Schiano has the blueprint.

Schiano, 45, who took Rutgers from a laughingstock to perennial Big East contender, was hired Thursday.

A mysterious Super Bowl teaser popped up on YouTube Thursday, with Matthew Broderick bringing back his role as Ferris Bueller, 26 years after his fateful day off. Bueller, er Broderick, seems to be in a hotel room so perhaps he's selling for a hotel chain?
