Will this make crow-sledding a Winter Olympics event?

January 18, 2012 | 11:51 am


A new video is sweeping the Internet today, faster than a story with Tim Tebow in the headline.

The video, which you can see above, captures a scene on a rooftop where a crow is sitting with the lid of a jar; then the crow decides to have some fun, riding the lid down the snow-covered roof.

Big deal, you might say. It was a fluke. The crow had no idea what it was doing. But the bird picks up the lid, flies to the top of the roof and does it again. And again.

The Winter Olympics must cash in on this immediately. Call the Jamaican bobsled team and see if they want to do a cross-promotional video.

Call Eddie "The Eagle" Edwards and see if he wants to change his name to "The Crow."

Get this crow to a half-pipe. One-on-one against Shaun White.

Call Sam the Eagle, the official mascot of the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles and see if he can track down this crow for an interview.

After all, birds of (kind of) a feather flock together.
