If you're on East Coast and currently watching the 2014 Winter Olympics because, duh, figure skating is on, you probably noticed that something is up with Bob Costas' left eye. It's red and nearly swollen shut! Deadspin reached out to Coastas and here's the response from his assistant:
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.
Thanks for checking with us.
Guess Costas has his own Sochi horror story, too. Join the club, Bob.
