From time to time NBC Sports commentator and host Bob Costas will give a short two minute thought on a hot topic in the NFL or pop culture on the Sunday Night Football broadcasts on NBC.  My latest five second rant to the fine folks at NBC Sports is the following:

"Please give Bob Costas a day off to take care of his pink eye condition."

Bob Costas has been dealing with a pink eye infection since the beginning of NBC Sports coverage of the Olympic games, but now things have gotten worse as it has now spread to both eyes.  It's simply a painful watch for this Olympics coverage viewer, and I can't imagine the pain Costas must be going through as he tries to read a teleprompter and keep his cool with eye guck getting in the way.

God speed to Mr. Costas for gutting it out, but for god sake!  MAKEUP!!
