Vashar giving back

New, comments

This kind of stuff is just cool to here.  From the Bears site.


Thankful for the unwavering support he's received from Bears fans, Nathan Vasher has found an incredibly generous and unique way to show his gratitude.

Having been selected to his first Pro Bowl, the second-year cornerback has decided to take two lucky fans with him to the Feb. 12 all-star game in Hawaii.

Bears cornerback Nathan Vasher has 13 interceptions in 32 career NFL games.
Dipping into his own pocket, Vasher will provide a fan and a guest roundtrip airline tickets, four nights in a luxury hotel and two tickets to the Pro Bowl game. The winner, who will be chosen in a random drawing Feb. 2, will also dine with the cornerback in Hawaii.

With fans accounting for one-third of the vote (along with NFL players and coaches), Vasher knows that he would have had a difficult time making the Pro Bowl without their support.

"It's just a way for me to show the fans how much I appreciate them," he said. "There's no way I could have had an opportunity to go to the Pro Bowl if it wasn't for their votes.

"It's just a way for me to get a chance to hang out with a couple of them and have a good time out there in Hawaii.

"It was really important to me to show the fans how important they are."

Fans can enter to win the trip by listening to The Mike North Show weekday mornings beginning Monday on WSCR 670 AM. Listeners will be entered into the drawing by calling into "The Score" when they hear a game highlight that features Vasher.
