OT: Yagarnott??

If any of you guys live in the east end of Montreal or simply drive on the Met going westbound, you've probably seen that billboard on the north side of the Met, around the Pie-Ix or St.Michel area that shows a jersey similar to the Habs with "Yagarnott" as the name on it. It's an advertisement for Warrior equipment and it's got Kovalev's signature on it.

Can someone please explain what "Yagarnott" is supposed to mean?

Thanks

Yagarnott ... y'a garnotte ... It probably refers to a baseball pitcher or a hockey player with a strong slapshot?

It means Y'a garnotte, as in "he pitches it". There's also one on the south shore side of the Champlain Bridge that's identical but it says "Krimkyslap" as in "Crime qu'y slap"
Just playing on joual french to make it sound russian...

Like everybody said. "Ya une maudite garnotte" is slang for "He's got a rocket of a shot".

"Une garnotte" is often used to talk about small rocks or gravel.

"Y" is often shorterm slang for IL (he). "Il est mort" becomes "Yť mort!"... thus "Il a une garnotte" becomes "Ya une garnotte".

So... Yagarnotte.

Actually, I work for CBS Affichage (the billboard company which has these billboards currently posted) and CaptCrunch is right on the money. New Balance is advertising their Warrior collection and is using a play on french slang to make it sound somewhat Russian!! Nice to see that hockey fans are noticing these billboards!!! I just sent this thread to the head of New Balance's creative department. They were happy to see that their ads are catching on with hockey fans around the city!!!

Good job by the way... the "Krimkyslap" one makes me smile everytim I see it.


I can just imagine Michel Bergeron or Don Cherrysaying that for some reason...

Reminds me of KR3PTOK, the escaped Russian mental patient who travelled to Canada in search of Crosby, to ultimately destroy him in a game of pickup.
