Peyton Manning's Forehead. Bernie & The Kosars. Tikki the Barbarian. No, they're not NFL tribute bands. They are fantasy football names. A clever fantasy football team name is a work of art. And we want to see what RedEye readers have come up with. Send us a screenshot--we repeat SCREENSHOT--of your team's name to redeyesports@tribune.com or tweet it to @redeyesportsguy . We'll create a gallery and include the best names in a future issue of the newspaper. Are you ready for some fantasy football?

For four years, RedEye has been mapping locations of Chicago homicides both online and in the newspaper. Over the years, readers have wanted to know more about homicides and RedEye's data collection methods. Here are the answers to the most frequently asked questions. How does RedEye count homicides? RedEye collects information about homicides from the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office, which performs autopsies on bodies to determine the causes of death. If the Medical Examiner's Office rules that a person died of a homicide in Chicago, RedEye will log the death in its database.

Prince Harry actually agreeing to be on reality TV. Totally bonkers, right? Well, not to the contestants on Fox's “I Wanna Marry 'Harry,' “ which premieres at 8 p.m. Tuesday. The show finds 13 American women moving into a castle under the pretense of possibly meeting their Prince Charming. What they don't know is that said royal is actually Matthew Hicks, a 24-year-old British environmental consultant who just happens to look quite a bit like the U.K.'s cheekiest redhead. So just how convincing is this non-royal charmer?

When Goose Island opened the doors to its Clybourn brewpub more than 25 years ago, "craft beer" was barely in Chicago's collective vocabulary. Now, new breweries open here each year, and we can brag that our favorite beers are made just a neighborhood away. All of that hometown pride culminates annually in Chicago Craft Beer Week - actually 11 days of $4 pint specials, tap takeovers and bar crawls - which runs May 15-25. So, how to prepare yourself? First, you should start carrying around a giant bottle of water ... right now. This will serve you well.

The Internet is a pretty cool place. It gave us hamsters eating tiny burritos, unique languages that allow us to imagine what dogs and cats would sound like if they could talk and a Twitter account for The Iron Sheik (@the_ironsheik)--the Web's single greatest achievement, if you ask me. Through a series of inspirational Pinterest quotes and Upworthy videos, the Internet has also given many of us the drive to be epic. Each day we are reminded to live deliberately, eat like we give a damn and, most importantly, be amazing.

After RedEye's first documentary "Road To Glory" focused on Treated Crew's Saint Millie, we've been getting bombarded by folks asking what he's doing now or what's coming next from him. We're happy to report that he's making new music, and we snagged the exclusive premiere of his The Gift-produced, Coldplay-sampling (seriously) single, "Money Motivation. " The catchy track has potential to stick in your head all day, if not longer. Listen to it below.      Want more?

Move over, little lobby boy. The pizza delivery man is coming over. Youtube user Nacho Punch imagined what a Wes Anderson porno might look like and then produced "The Grand Sausage Pizza. " It's a classic tale of woman orders pizza, sleazy pizza delivery man comes over and suddenly they're in a small tent with a dick-laden pizza and fuzzy fuchsia handcuffs.  The video is a sexual innuendo-filled satire of Wes Anderson's "The Grand Budapest Hotel," which RedEye's Matt Pais gave four stars ....

Chicago homicides were down 2 percent citywide last year compared with 2010, but there were a few communities on the South and West sides that saw their homicide numbers rise, RedEye data shows. Chicago logged 440 homicides in 2011, down from 449 in 2010, a RedEye analysis of preliminary police data found.
