Bob Costas Is Reporting From Sochi With A Horrible Eye Infection

The show must go on! UPDATE: the infection has spread to his other eye as well.

Posted on

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.

People obviously took to Twitter to try to find the truth.

What is going on with Bob Costas? Does he have pink eye or something? His left eye is creeping me out.

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.

UPDATE — Feb. 10, 11:14 p.m ET: Unfortunately the infection has spread to the other eye. Eek!

AHHHH! DON'T LOOK BOB COSTAS IN THE EYES!!
