La Familia Glossary

  1. Written by: trailblazers

    MSP Vernacular. La Familia Glossary of Terms.

    Body. Chad’s original nickname, stemming from his days as an amateur body builder. He competed in the division that emphasized thin physiques with little to no muscle.

    Cereeeeeeeebral. One day, a fan said Justin Roper is going to be good because he’s cerebral. Sorta grew from there.

    Champ ass. Thanks to Petros for this one. Perfect backside.

    Check mark. What happens on the grease board when an MSP Boy messes up. Chad usually has the most.

    C.I.P. Chad in Portland. Doing’s alternate nickname. Originated by going on the Rome show and coming on as Chad in Portland. We shortened it.

    Constituent. A listener of the program. One who is represented by The Champ.

    Dbag. Douche bag.

    Delish. Something that’s cool or hot.

    Fanmanship. Qualities that reflect somebody’s status as a fan.

    Fellowship. Communicating and hanging out with friends.

    Jobber. A guy with nothing special about him. Punches the clock, gets paid, goes home. Not a difference maker.

    La Familia. Derivative of the Sports Saturday Family which became the Portland Sports Family.

    Stuffer. Originates from a bad car one would acquire for temporary purposes. Is now applied to most things that are substandard.

    Timmy “the man” Mones. Original Producer during genesis of La Familia.

    Trickin off. Thanks to Ray Buchanan. Not in context of prostitution, more like messing up, slippin, being faulty.

    V. Our way of calling a player soft…or a *ussy if you will.
