    Edit: Eyes. It has now migrated to the right eye.

    Matt Lauer to take over for ailing Bob Costas on primetime NBC Olympics duty
    By Jay Busbee 2 hours ago

    With Bob Costas' persistent, and highly visible, eye infection not improving, NBC is going to the bullpen to bring the Today Show's Matt Lauer in for prime-time Olympic hosting duty on Tuesday night. Ol' Red-Eyes made the announcement on Tuesday morning's Today Show.

    Costas' eye infection has grown progressively worse as the Games have gone on, spreading from his left eye to his right and, really, making pretty much everyone cringe every time Costas came on the screen:

    [​IMG]

    Credit Costas for having a sense of humor about the whole affair; he acknowledged it openly from the start of the first broadcast. In the meantime, Costas appears to have found at least one way to dull the pain: vodka shots. He knocked back one with Mary Carillo on Monday night, reasoning, "I’m not really a vodka guy, but look at it this way: my eyes can’t get any redder, no matter what I do.”

    Respect to all the pole vaulters out there. I've read horror stories of their trying to travel around to events, taking their pole(s) with them. It's by no means an easy thing to do!

    You're telling me.

    I think they ought to "gut" both the men's and women's teams and start over. :(

    Just watched the US women's curling team give up 7 points... That's incredible considering you only have 8 rocks to play.

    that does take a lot of skill, like Garrett blowing a 26-3 lead :)

    BTW when looking at the medal standings (which will change I am sure,) I have to say, helloooo down there

    I don't pay a lot of attention to medal counts in either Olympics except to see how the lower population countries are doing. Personally I'm more impressed with what Norway or the Netherlands do as opposed to the US, Russia or Canada. I mean Canada winning a medal in hockey or curling... I mean is that a big-time achievement? Really? LOL! Norway has like 1/7th the population of Canada. The Netherlands has about 1/2th the population. I like seeing the smaller countries do well or see someone from the UK win a skate-boarding medal because they don't have the hills to practice on.
