Short for "St.Paul Youth Group" this term came into existence during a Sunday afternoon in the summer of 2001 when the obsessive counter-strike
playing members of the youth group were brainstorming a clan name for themselves in the comforts of their second home, CnC Internet Cafe
. Often pronounced "spig" or "spy-gee," the correct pronunciation is as simple as reciting the letters themselves, "Es-Pee-Why-Gee." This youth group came into existence long before the founding of the name "SPYG" at a Korean-Catholic church located in DesPlaines
, St. Paul Chong Ha Sang Korean Catholic Mission.
