Default Sproles' stuttering problem

Was anyone else aware of his studdering problem? I'm not trying to bring him down in any way, but what an inspirtation. It was kinda sad when he was interviewed after the game.

It happens... I was a VERY bad stutterer.

Now... well, I feel very comfortable speaking in front of a crowd... though I still have problems at times.

In the beginning, you could tell that he was trying to take his time to make sure he didn't studder (and he was exhausted) but he did when he smiled. I heard he took speech classes in college. What an inspiration though.

I didn't really notice it very much... one time when I worked at a newspaper, there was this one reporter who had a horrible stuttering problem. It got in the way of her interviewing people all the time. Except when she got mad; then she would yell at you clear as day. What a weird thing to have.

I had a friend like that. Not being mean, but it was hilarious. A normal 10 minute conversation would take 25-30 with him, but he could go off on you with absolutley no problems.

As for Sproles, I didn't realize it and I was at work after the game. I might watch the soundbytes later. I like Sproles a lot, so I hope it doesn't keep him from doing interviews in the future.
