Stephen Strasburg says ‘you know’ 24 times in 58 seconds

No, Stephen Strasburg is not being paid to be a great public speaker.

Yes, I have plenty of speaking tics of my own.

No, I’m not trying to make fun of him.

Yes, it turns out that I’m as captivated by his return this summer as I was by his professional debut last spring.

Still, the man managed to say ‘you know’ 24 times in this 58-second clip, and that’s an achievement that I don’t want to let pass unnoticed. That’s once every 2.42 seconds for almost a full minute. Good stuff.
