Mell of a Hess: Costas is a 5'2" jock-sniffer who thinks he has a grasp of philosophy.


If you cant be an athlete, be an athletic supporter

Costas, who does not normally wear glasses, has been sporting a pair since the beginning of the Sochi Games due to an infection that started in his left eye and has now spread to his right eye.

A friend of mind has the same doctor. He broke his collarbone and wrist last summer, he had to wear cuff links and a bow tie for 3 months. He's better now.

And he'll tease you
He'll unease you
All the better just to please you
He's precocious and he knows just
What it takes to make a pro blush
He got Greta Garbo stand off sighs
He's got Bob Costas eyes

He'll expose you, when he snows you
Off your feet with the crumbs he throws you
He's ferocious and he knows just
What it takes to make a pro blush
All the Commie boys think he's a spy
He's got Bob Costas eyes

Syrrh: "Reluctantly, I was trying to throw a complete game here, but I think we're going to have to go to the bullpen, and I don't know if you're aware of this or not, but you're Mariano Rivera, at least tonight,"

Y'know, being completely unable to turn off your sportscaster voice must be pretty awful for everyone he interacts with on a daily basis.


Great, now I have to watch Better Off Dead.

morg: Collinsworth on the Olympics. What the hell is that guy doing on there? Keep him away from other sports or, better yet, all sports.


"Bob, did he even stick the landing?  I'm not so sure that he didn't buckle his foot a little bit.  I don't wanna criticize the judges too much but I'm not so sure that that wasn't a 0.5 deduction?  I'm not so sure.  But, on replay, I'm not so sure that they didn't not get it right.  I'm just not so sure!"

I don't always wear glasses but when I do it's because 'm not wearing contacts.

Oh, great.  The last time Matt Lauer had the big chair, he showed up for with without his socks.  Somehow, seeing him in dress shoes without socks sent me into the deepest rage I've ever felt toward a television personality.

This time around I'm getting my Olympic coverage via the BBC.  No thanks, NBC boneheads.  We're through.

I like to watch the olympics.

even with all the malarky and potential politics involved.

I love the competition and potential mayhem and the collapsing athletes working much harder than I ever will for anything.

Yet.

every 2 years I develop an unbridled disdain for Bob Costas.

more than disdain,

hate . . . yes . . . I hate Bob Costas during the Olympics.

there, I said it.

then it calms, and subsides and vanishes.

\ the cycles of life.

Wouldn't the guy staning in for him be like a middle reliever? If we are to go with the baseball reference, Bob Costa would be like the starter that got torched for 5 runs in the first inning and taken out of the game. Closer would be if this happend on the last 2 days of Olympics, not the first 2.
