Bob Costas is tasked with weaving the societal issues of the Sochi Olympics together with the athletic events from his lofty perch.  Ultimately that was going to lead to the incredible television moment of him saying the words "Pussy Riot" on national television.  That happened on night one when he also happened to have a weird infection in his left eye that just added to the… uniqueness… of the moment.

Predictably, Twitter exploded.

If the rest of the Winter Olympics give us nothing else but this moment, it will have been worth it.
