Bob Costas is a fantastic sports journalist, but geez Bob, lighten up a little bit! Costas was on hosting duties for NBC's coverage of the US Open this weekend which meant little more than cut-ins with important thoughts and a couple highlights just to remind viewers that this was a big event because Bob Costas was there.
One of Costas' functions was to read a highlight for an afternoon game between the awful Cubs and terrible Mets - a game in which the Mets won 4-3 on a walkoff home run by Kirk Nieuwenhuis.
The Mets were happy they won.
Bob Costas was not happy that the Mets were happy:no comments
