NBC’s Bob Costas Explains What’s Up With His Eye To Sochi Winter Olympic Viewers
What’s up with Bob Costas’ eye? With the Sochi Winter Olympics in full swing, you’d expect the athletes and the medal count to be getting all the attention. However, NBC’s Bob Costas is getting plenty of attention during the Olympic coverage, thanks to his eye. Costas is wearing those funny glasses for good reason.
USA Today reports Costas is suffering from an eye infection, hence his Harry Potter glasses. Rather than dodge his pink eye, Costas told viewers what was going on with his funny looking eye.
Bear with me for a moment as I spare my friends in the press office countless inquiries.
I have no choice but to go all Peabody and Sherman on you for the next couple of nights since I woke up this morning with my left eye swollen shut and just about as red as the old Soviet flag.
I was watching Costas during the Olympic coverage last night and his left eye still looked puffy and red. Pink eye is no fun but the show must go on, right Bob?
