Bob Costas Still Looks Like a Monster

One night off didn’t do it, and with the streak already ruined, NBC’s Olympic host will once again let Matt Lauer do the honors on Wednesday night. “Actually, I don’t feel that bad,” Costas said this morning, in a phone call to Today, so he could continue hiding his face. “It’s an eye infection, and my eyes are so blurry and watery and become so light-sensitive that even in dim light they’re constantly tearing up. I can’t possibly be in the studio, so it’s not a case of just saying, ‘What the heck, I’ll go in not feeling well.’” No one is judging you, Bob. In fact, we appreciate it.
