Matt Lauer and company called in from the Today show this morning to check on Bob Costas, who said that Lauer would be taking over primetime coverage of the Sochi Winter Olympics, due to a double eye infection. Costas joked on air, “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."
