Costas, appearing in Sochi to kick off the winter Olympics, explained his scary looking condition..


“Bear with me for a moment as I spare my friends in the press office countless inquiries,” he said into the camera. “I have no choice (but) 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 added. “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.”

So you can’t drink the Sochi water, you can’t shower without being filmed and you can’t sleep without catching a disease? From one of those “donated pillows?”
