This has to be one of the coolest backyard rinks we've ever seen. Take a look:

Canadians who might think they're the superior outdoor rink-building nation now have some stiff competition. Built by super dad, Shawn Carlon of Maple Grove, Minnesota, the rink features waterproof LED lights that are built under the ice surface. The idea was suggested by his wife, and being the ultimate dad and husband, Shawn figured out a way to make it work. Owning his own flooring business definitely helped.

But what makes Shawn so worthy of the title Super Dad? According to an interview he did with a local CBS station, he and his family aren't really that into hockey. He just does it for the whole neighbourhood to share.
