Matt Lauer Teases Bob Costas’ Travel Plans: ‘You Taking The Red-Eye?’

Lauer CostasOn the “Today” show this morning, Matt Lauer poked a little fun at colleague Bob Costas over Costas’ Olympic battle with an eye infection.

“When are you taking off?” Lauer asked, with a dark sunglass-wearing Costas responding he’ll leave Sochi on Monday.

“You taking the red-eye home?” Lauer asked while laughing. “Did I walk into that or what?” Costas replied.

Costas also thanked Lauer and Meredith Vieira for filling in for him while he battled an eye infection, which he said made him feel miserable, adding he felt he wasn’t holding up his end of the bargain while he was out and his colleagues were working so hard.
