The anchorman Bob Costas had a bad case of pink eye at the Sochi Olympics. Whether this was due to a Botox-induced reaction or an STD remains a moot point.
Bob Costas first contracted pink eye on one peeper. Then the commentator’s other eye too became infected. That is when tongues started wagging. And though wagging tongues bite themselves, this time it appeared to be the case that they had every reason to get lascivious in their rumor mongering fury.
The fact, that this infectious illness came at the time when he visited the Olympics in Sochi, caused many to air their opinions regarding its particular cause. But the official statement on the issue is that it is just a case of Botox injections that went too far as regards their dosage.
While this is not as bad as a sexually transmitted disease, it is almost the same case since you are having bacteria shoved into your eyes. Bob Costas has been a source of embarrassment and shame for the United States. If word gets out that he actually had sex with a Russian prostitute, things would take on a more sinister edge as the press would hound him forever.
Bob Costas had to take a week off from reporting since the nasty case of pink eye or conjunctivitis went from bad to worse. An ordinary person who contracted the common eye disease would not be questioned twice about how he got it in the first place. But this is a member of celebrity culture so the life he lives is public property.
The Botox rumor spread after several keen observers noticed that Bob’s forehead appeared extra-smooth. This is an obvious effect of Botox injections. Others deny that any such thing could have happened. They say that it is simply impossible.
Whatever the case, Bob was a man who got all of America embroiled in the midst of an awkward situation at the Sochi Olympics. What exactly caused the eye infection will remain for now a mystery.
