Poor Bob Costas. Those glasses he wore during the first prime-time Olympics broadcast were not, it turned out, for show. “Bear with me for a moment as I spare my friends in the press office countless inquiries. I have no choice to go all Peabody and Sherman on you for the next couple of nights since I woke up this morning with my left eye swollen shut and just about as red as the old Soviet flag,” he said. “According to the NBC doctors here, it’s some kind of minor infection, which should resolve itself by the weekend. If only all my issues would resolve themselves that quickly, but that’s another story.” #Sochiproblems.
