Mensagem:  I've heard "speel" used as a noun to mean "a prepared talk".
I went to the mechanic and he gave me a speel about how my car needed new brakes and and a new transmission.
The doctor gave me the usual speel about how I need to lose weight.

"To speel" can also mean to climb.  Apparently this is a mountain climbing expression.  I have not heard it used to mean "to be an opportunist", but it is possible.
