Bob Costas Slammed a Shot of Vodka On Air, Predicted His Own Demise

“I’m looking at it this way — my eyes can’t get any redder, no matter what I do," conjunctivitis-stricken Bob Costas told NBC Olympic contributor Mary Carillo Monday following a package about Russian vodka production. Then, as you can see in the short video, Costas slammed a shot of vodka with authority as an incredulous Carillo hesitated to follow the veteran's lead.

Does Costas look like he messes around?  Don't look to closely, though -- pink eye is contagious.

"Tomorrow morning I'll be laying on a curb in Minsk," Costas quipped. Presumably due to the eye infection, not some hardcore boozing session finishing two hours northwest into Belarus, NBC announced in the morning that Matt Lauer will step in for Costas for its primetime Olympics coverage. Meantime, Costas will have time to wander through the Olympic village hazing impressionable journalists. DRINK IT!!!!
