Bob Costas’ eye infection has gotten so bad he’s going to step back from coverage of the Sochi Olympic Games, he said Tuesday on “Today.” Matt Lauer will take over in what Costas framed as a call to the bullpen.
“I think we’re going to have to go to the bullpen…you’re Mariano Rivera tonight.” -Bob Costas tells @MLauer

Monday night, Costas drank vodka on-air, telling Mary Carillo “My eyes can’t get any redder.”

And Twitter, well, Costas has a legitimate excuse now not to read Twitter. Let’s envy him that.
If you had asked me, hey Ken will Bob Costas become a Bond villain in 2014, I probably would have said no. It’s a funny world.
