Bob Costas’ eye attacked in Sochi: Fans react on Twitter to infection

Bob Costas opened NBC’s broadcast of the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics with an explanation for why he went all Peabody and Sherman on the world. Costas woke up Thursday morning with his eye swollen shut from an infection, which seems to fall in line with everything else we’ve been hearing and seeing out of Russia.

Did no one advise Costas to not wash his face in the Sochi water? Rookie mistake.

Naturally, with the U.S. tuning in, Twitter took off accordingly.
