From 7 to 10 a.m. on Wednesday of this week, doughnut-lovers can receive free doughnuts at Beaver's Donuts' new location in the Chicago French Market. Doughnut-haters are eligible too, but those weirdos probably aren't interested. This glazed, wonderful freeness is to celebrate Beaver's new, permanent home in the Market. The mobile doughnut truck will still be active, however. Those who make it down on Wednesday will be eligible to receive four free regular-topped donuts. BYOC, though, Bring Your Own Coffee.

Leave your answer in the comments box, and you might find yourself in a future issue of RedEye. 1. Carlos Boozer wants to “quiet the haters.” How can he do that? 2. Who else deserves a rule named after them a la “The Derrick Rose Rule”? 3. Greg Maddux leaving the Cubs twice is like … 4. Why is Jay Cutler interacting with @jaycutlerthumb on Twitter? 5. If Mike Martz wants to coach football at Arizona St. … Follow @redeyesportsguy for daily details about...

*** (out of 4) During the middle of Jay-Z's verse on "3 Kings" last year, he had a bar where he just sneered, sniffed, sniveled. That's all it was: "King H-O, y'all should know by now/ and if you don't, uh-- *sniff*. " It was the best part of the song, and today's "Open Letter" embodies that line, only in an entire song. It's both a direct response to the recent controversies surrounding Hov (the illegal-but-actually-legal vacation to Cuba, people clowning on his share of the Nets, his friendship with Obama)

No beer style inspires the level of heated debate that pumpkin beers do. RedEye's own Kate Bernot and Ernest Wilkins weigh in on the great pumpkin beer debate, though this one may have to be settled with a good old-fashioned arm-wrestling match. GREAT Call me a relativist, but I believe there are no inherently bad beer styles. (I am giving gruit beers the side eye, though.) Yes, there are a few overly spiced, sugar sweet and mapley pumpkin beers out there that are made with exactly zero percent actual pumpkin, but those don't render the entire...

We're poised to learn a lot about the guy pulling the strings for the Bears. I'm not talking about Caleb Hanie and his mediocre quarterbacking skills. (He's a backup for a reason, people. A better-than-average backup capable of winning a few games, but a backup nonetheless.) No, I'm talking about Jerry Angelo. With Jay Cutler out, the home stretch of this season will be the general manager's saving grace or his last hurrah. A 7-4 record in a tepid NFC should be enough of a head start for a team with enough talent...

Merry Christmas, Bears fans. It's over. For all you Cutler haters out there, now you know. He's the best we got, and we're nothing without him. Sorry D, it's true. Of course, this highlights another weakness: Jerry Angelo's stunning inability to evaluate offensive talent. Thanks for Caleb Hanie, Jerry. Reminds me of the year you stuck us with Jonathan Quinn and Craig Krenzel. No one scours the earth harder to find more duds at quarterback than this guy. Jerry, humor me. Donovan McNabb.
