A Greek name, usually for a strong, handsome male. Yianni’s usually play the bass, but have been known to play the pan flute on occasion (see: Yianni: Master of the Pan Flute). Full of knowledge, and is secretly a ninja. (but don’t tell anybody, its all very hush hush).Guy: “Hey Yianni! What ever happened to your dream of being a ninja?”
Yianni: *Nods head, smiles, and walks away to save the world from a threat they didn’t even know existed*
To pull a ‘Yianni’, when something unexpected happens and results in a positive outcome.See pool, when a player aims for one pocket, misses and it ends up in another, this would be called a Yianni.
A player will never admit to pulling a Yianni but will always claim it as skill.
A stupid Greek. Right, yianni’s here. :D
There’s this amazing little Italian Cafe by my house, and this morning on my way home from from seeing Greece v South Korea, I stopped by to get breakfast. I’m stuck behind 3 cars in a row, waiting to turn into the parking lot. 3 dudes hop out the car and scurry inside. I walk in soon after and see them standing at the counter. Before I even get to order, the owner of the cafe makes them 3 espressos, the 3 guys chit chat for about a minute or so, down the coffee and leave. Is that how it always is with Italians and their coffee? Its quite different with Greeks and their frappes. We sit and chill for hours with our frappe or our elliniko cafe.. now that I think of it, they prolly do the same when drinking cappuchino, right? Even so, it just seemed crazy to me to walk in, down a coffee and walk out.
