Ted King In "The Bodyguard"

Oct 6 2009

An aging champion struggles to regain his form. A brash rookie refuses to conform to the ways of the peloton. Together, they can overcome the forces arrayed against them—but only if they first conquer the demons within. The Bodyguard is the timeless tale of a bond forged between two men in the quest for victory in professional cycling.

My homage to The Empire Brokeback, made entirely of footage from Cervelo’s excellent Beyond The Peloton documentary series. The not-exactly-memorable trailer to The Bodyguard (1992) is here for comparison.

I had planned to hold onto this and set up a World Premiere during Ted’s big appearance in Boston next week, but I realized the video quality might not hold up at higher resolution. Tagged as HTRWW so it would appear in the podcast.

    I hope you are ashamed of yourself. Most people could make the joke and then just leave it alone, but no, you have to waste hours compiling this just to subject me to urban yodeling resemebling the disgusting sounds of lady cats in heat. You are sick man, sick.

    OK,OK, it was kinda funny.

    That was beautiful, man! When Ted looked over at Carlos during that team meeting, there was such commitment, dedication, and … love, in his eyes, that it was … it just …

    …I’m sorry, I promised myself I wouldn’t cry.

    Cosmo, You are too good at these, and possibly driven by a deep love for TK. Remember your retrospective from a month or so back? That’s all I’m sayin’.

    “Ted Queen” …? Wow. Your wit is endless.

    Have you ever met the Hulkster? Dartmouth ’04 with abnormally long legs, rides for Indy Fab, unashamed to bust out the weave on the big climbs…

    Oh that was good. There are so many places I can go with this but I will just stop right now. I wish I had that soundtrack at Bessges in the room.
