From Skyward Hotel Rooms to Cute Cyclops Mascots

Just because the 2012 Summer Olympics are a year away doesn't mean you can't start getting pumped for the competition early. To help ignite your sporting spirit, check out these 2012 summer Olympics sensations.

The London Olympics will surely be a sight to see, and not just for the athletes. Innovative architecture is set to pop up on the city's roofs during the games; even the game's mascots are artistically inspired and have somehow managed to make the one-eye face look cute. Of special interest to me is the torch, which is covered in gold and has over 8,000 holes in it to represent the 8,000 torch bearers. If you can't wait for the 2012 Summer Olympics to start, I apologize, as I can't move time forward. I can, however, suggest you check out these 2012 summer Olympics sensations to help hold you over.
