NBC interviewed newly inducted Pro Football Hall of Famer Cris Carter during the first quarter of the Hall of Fame Game between the Dallas Cowboys and Miami Dolphins. During the interview, NBC showed a copy of Carter's birth certificate, exposing a little-known fact about the former wide receiver.

"Graduel Christopher Darin Carter."

You read that right. Carter's real first name is actually Graduel. Your secret is out now, Graduel!

Hat tip to For The Win for the find.
