1. On Feb. 6, Bob Costas went on NBC’s Today show to report from Sochi. But it wasn’t what he was saying that caught people’s attention. It was the fact that something was going on with his eye.
2. People obviously took to Twitter to try to find the truth.
3. And make fun of it.
5. Bob’s assistant told Deadspin:
Yes, Bob has some sort of infection which has his left eye completely red and almost completely closed, making it impossible to put a contact lens in it. It just came on within the last 24 hours, the NBC doctors in Sochi are treating it, and they think it should resolve itself by the weekend. Until then, he has no choice but to go with the glasses on air.
