Default Bob Costas Has Stroke Live on Air? Update: No, only looks that way

Not sure what was happening since the sound was off, but this doesn't look good. Thoughts and prayers.

He said at the start of the broadcast it was some minor eye infection that the NBC doctors claimed would clear up on it's own in a few days.
