Hey Chicago sports fans, the 25th Annual Sports Fans Choice Awards Show was held on November 28, 2011.
This year we looked back on the past 25 years of Chicago Sports.
There were special tributes to our Hall of Famers, as well as Hometown Hero presentations to Devin Hester of the Bears, CJ Watson of the Bulls, Darren Hayder of the Wolves, Michael Videira of the Fire, and from the Rush Reggie Grey - for their outstanding contributions to the community.
Fans voted for Rising Star and MVP at ballot centers across the city and online. This year's Rising Star Award went to Corey Crawford of the Blackhawks and the HH Gregg MVP honors went to Matt Forte of the Bears.
Special thank you to NBC Chicago for streaming the Red Carpet Show LIVE!
Players from all of Chicago's pro teams were in attendance at this "closed to the public" event. It was truly a VIP night, complete with an expanded Red Carpet Show, celebrity cocktail reception, and silent auction benefiting Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation.
