Bob Costas’ Harry Potter look at Sochi attributed to eye infection

Add one more item to the media’s lengthy list of #SochiProblems: Bob Costas’ eye infection. Deadspin reached out to Costas to find out just what was going on and received this reply 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.

The dangerous face water!

Quite a few found an uncanny resemblance to Harry Potter.

Harry Potter, or Clark Kent?

If that eye infection gets any worse, it’ll have its own Twitter account. Oh, wait.
