Charles Tillman is finally going to a Pro Bowl.
Nine seasons into his career the Bears DB will make the trip to the Pacific Islands for a not-terribly-entertaining all star football game.
Since this will be his first trip to Hawaii as a Pro-Bowler, he plans on bringing his family.
An escape to Hawaii is normally a dream come true for anyone trapped in a Chicago winter, but Tillman's daughter isn't so hot on the idea.
"She was like 'I don't want to go to Hawaii they got too many volcanoes'," he said she said. "'There's hot lava out there.' I kind of had to explain to her that was a cartoon. I think she'll be ok once she gets in the water."
Something tells me that Peanut will be able to sell his daughter on the trip to celebrate his honor.
He found out about the selection while gathered with his family, and was happy that it finally came.
"Everything happens for a reason," Tillman said. "I'm glad it finally came."
He's been the center of the Bears secondary for much of his career and is well-known for disrupting passing offenses. Tillman finally got the nod for contributing everywhere on defense. He is second among the Bears in tackles, plus has a sack, two interceptions, a pick-six, three forced fumbles and 11 broken up passes.
For that, he gets to visit Hawaii -- even the volcanoes.
