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.

  • Green Eggs And Ted

    GOOD GOING, FOX NEWS!!! – liberal logic

  • Steven A

    It’s Pink-O, not Pink-I!

  • fivebyfive

    Polonium- 210?
    Or maybe pink eye from a russian hooker crapping on his face.


    Pink eye!!! Bob should of never used worcestershire sauce for embalming fluid!!

  • Steve__Jacobson

    To say that picture of Costas is creepy would be an understatment. But, he is a creepy kind of guy.

  • Howard Roark

    How mad must Bob Costas be…having to look at the world from only the Right?

  • Brian Roastbeef

    In the land of Dmitri Shostakovich. Twitter says Harry Potter. Looks more like Mad Eye Moody.

  • stuckinIL4now

    And I thought acCosts-us just wanted to look more cerebral during his 18 days of global pontificating.

  • Republicanvet

    Was he overzealous in looking down the barrel of a gun?

  • Lamontyoubigdummy

    Oh dear.

    Bob used the Sochi “dangerous face water”.

  • Lamontyoubigdummy

    For that one pro Reagan story NBC ran a long time ago, Putin has declared Bob Costas and his crew will broadcast from the shi++iest diamond mine in Russia.

  • TugboatPhil

    Pink eye? I thought it was damage from the log that was in it while he told us to remove the splinter from ours.

      “Bob Costas: Judge not, that you not be judged, Phil” 😉 …and there’ll be plenty of judging at the Olympics that Bob can rail against, too.

  • Roto ✓Intentionally Left Blank

    And in less than an hour on the opening show, NBC had Bob Costas in the studio talking about the Russian “gay rights” issue. Imagine that….

  • Pat

    he got confused by those toilet signs.

  • Al’s Annoyed Grandpa

    Hey! It’s Chief Inspector Costas!

  • thedumbblonde

    The twitter comments above^^ are hilarious.

  • John Smith

    He already looks like some Tales from the Crypt character without that eye infection.

  • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    I was actually thinking more Rick Moranis:

  • Calcat36

    That is NOT the look of an unhinged, crazed liberal?

  • Jake Bradford

    Couldn’t happen to a more repellent gun grabber.

  • Right Wired ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Kind fo late to the party..but anyway:

  • Cam

    When the confusion of liberty and power confuses liberty with wealth, more demands for “liberty” can be conjured up to attack true liberty.

  • Bump

    They’ve got national health care over there in Russia. They’ve had it for 100 years. Get an appointment with one of the local doctors.

  • mike_in_kosovo

    To quote Johnny Lee…maybe he was “looking for love (in all the wrong places)”… just sayin’

  • TitzyFritzensimmons

    Shoulda washed your hands, Bob.

  • HillaryNut

    It would have to be his left eye, he is so liberal he more than likely has 2 left eyes.

  • HillaryNut

    He has had so face lifts his balls should be on his chest by now.
