Sears Tower’ ownership group has offered to rename the 110-story skyscraper at 233 S. Wacker Drive after the USOC [United States Olympic Committee], sources say. A spokesman for the building declined to comment, citing a confidentiality agreement.

It's a nice gesture, but a huge-ass torch on top would really seal the deal, I think.
