Meet A Dangerously Dysfunctional Demolition-Derby Daredevil
As I understand it - Speedo was supposed to be something of a "love" story. OK. It's a love story. But, if this was so - It has certainly got to be one of the screwiest love stories ever documented on film.
Not only was Ed "Speedo" Jager an utterly creepy and unlikable character on all counts - But I honestly couldn't believe how utterly dysfunctional this demolition-derby daredevil was, as well. I'd say that this guy was seriously unhinged (as was the rest of his weirdo family, too).
My guess is that (just like a punch-drunk boxer) Ed's raving behaviour was a result of being hit in the head so many times, crashing cars and deeply inhaling car exhaust fumes on a daily basis. It's the only thing that logically explained Ed's decidedly unbalanced mental state to me.
Anyways - What I quickly found out while watching this documentary was this - One has got to be a real die-hard fan of the sport of demolition derbies to fully appreciate "Speedo" for whatever the heck they might think that it's worth.
