Bob Costas appears to be having a problem with both of his eyes now
Bob Costas is off to a tough start at the Sochi Olympics.
We’re not talking about his duties as the primetime host of NBC’s Olympics coverage.
We’re talking about his health.
Last week he explained to viewers that his right eye was red and swollen due to a case of pink eye.
Well, he’s now having a problem with both eyes as this is how he looked Monday night:

Talk about terrible timing for such an ailment.
People on Twitter, as they’re known to do, quickly chimed in on the situation:
The parasite living in Bob Costas' left eye seems to have migrated to his right. How soon before it jumps to a new host? Matt Lauer is next.

As long as Bob Costas' eyes don't touch Dan Patrick's hair we'll all be fine

Costas was replaced by Matt Lauer on Tuesday, and the response was less than positive.
