“Bear with me for a moment as I spare my friends in the press office countless inquiries. I have no choice 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,” Costas said at the beginning of NBC’s primetime coverage Thursday night, referring to the odd glasses he was forced to wear instead of contact lenses.

“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,” Costas added.
