This has to be one of the coolest things EVER. Now THIS is how you get pumped up for the Winter Olympics! A family in Cologne, yes that's in Minnesota not the Germany one, built a super sweet Luge track in their backyard and it's as awesome as you'd imagine. 

That's it, I'm so ready for the Winter Games. I'm finding a pristine yogurt lid and stringing paper clips together to make a gold medal for myself to wear around the station today! USA! USA! USA!

Consequently, Dear Family In Cologne, if you'd like to invite me to your Luge track I happily accept in advance.

By the way, if you want the full Olympic schedule NBC's page is fantastically full of info! You can grab it here!
