Shpeal?

I'd never heard of Nicki Jhabvala before this morning, but she apparently writes about video games for SportsIllustrated.com.

I'd never read any of Nicki Jhabvala's writing before this morning, but she apparently doesn't know how to spell the word spiel.

From Jhabvala's article Same King, Different Prizefighter: "In the way he finished all his thoughts that night, King reiterated his closing shpeal one more time."

Funny... I thought that professional writers were supposed to know how to spell words, or at least how to use spellcheck.

Is a shpeal what happens when a talkative person runs into a bell?

Just wondering.
