It is time for the first Detroit Jock City Hairy Yeti awards where we recognize the best and worst of what Detroit and Michigan sports has to offer.
It has been an action packed year on the Detroit sports scene and Detroit Jock City wants to recognize those Detroit athletes, teams, coaches and fans that have made us cheer, laugh out loud or made us sick to our stomachs.
So why did we choose the Yeti as our official awards mascot? Everest the Yeti is the mascot of the FanSided network of which Detroit Jock City is a proud member. FanSided has over 240 sites covering every major sports town in the US as well as MMA, Boxing, NASCAR, Golf, Professional Wrestling, Major League Soccer and more.

So as Everest the Yeti is the protector of all that is good on FanSided; he will represent soon to be prestigious awards here at Detroit Jock City.
