Bob Costas Begins Sochi Olympics Coverage With Eye Infection

CostasEyeBetween the missing shower curtains, brown tap water and computer hacking affecting journalists covering the Sochi Games, NBC’s Bob Costas might have it the worst. He has an eye infection. At the start of NBC’s fortnight (+3 days) of coverage tonight Costas announced, “I woke up with my left eye swollen shut and just about as red as the Soviet flag.” Costas says he’ll be wearing glasses for the next couple of nights.

“According to NBC doctors here, it’s some kind of minor infection which should resolve itself by the weekend,” Costas added.
