Bob Costas’s Olympic experience has been a trying one, as the long-time NBC studio host has battled eye infections and was forced to miss his first prime-time Olympic telecasts since 1988.

Costas returned earlier this week, and on Friday morning he visited the set of the “Today” show to talk with Matt Lauer, who had replaced Costas during his absence.

Costas walked right into a joke about his eye problems, and it was actually kind of hilarious.
