In Sochi, NBC sports broadcaster and treasure Bob Costas has been struggling with an eye infection since the Olympics Opening Ceremony last Friday. Either the eye infection is worse or viewers couldn't take looking at him anymore anymore because today, NBC announced that Matt Lauer will be filling in for Costas tonight. Just staring at his eyes makes our eyes itch.
While we feel really bad for Costas and also plan on never traveling to Russia, ever, the tweets about the whole situation, have helped us feel a little better.
Here are the 10 funniest tweets we've seen about Bob Costas.
