CRYSTAL, Minn. - Leading up to the Sochi Olympics, KARE 11 has been asking Minnesotans to share their spirit for the games.

On Tuesday, Tim Smith and his family in Crystal shared a homemade luge track with their neighbors and KARE 11.

They even invited Sports Director Eric Perkins to give the course a try.

"Because a 6 foot 4 inch man sitting on a small saucer sled on top of an icy luge track in Crystal, Minnesota, this makes a whole heck of a lot of sense," Perkins said.

Check out the video below for an extended look at Perk's grade-A effort.
