Yes, Bob Costas should be commended for showing up to work with pink eye, because it is not fair that he should have to sit out the Olympics, which he loves, because of something that he can't help. We all know Bob Costas as the guy who announces the Olympics. There is no reason to change it now. We all have to work when we are sick.
Bob Costas is a veteran sports reporter and he should be commended for working while he is sick. The Winter Games are an important world sports event, and he is doing a good job reporting them for his network. The Olympics would not be the same without his brand of coverage.
As long as Bob Costas' condition couldn't be passed along to others, it's commendable to show up to work with an illness, as he did in February of 2014. That being said, there are people who show up to work with far worse conditions than pink eye. Perhaps this should be a reminder to us all to look up to people who persist despite personal setbacks.
Yes, I think that Bob Costas should be commended for showing up to work with pink eye, because he has guts to put himself out there when he doesn't look perfect. It is obvious that Costas likes what he does. This will go down in history as the Olympics where Costas had pink eye. But he is doing his job and that is commendable. He is a good reporter.
Having pink eye is uncomfortable, and sometimes even painful. If you usually wear contacts, and I do, it's a nightmare to have to go without glasses. However, Bob Costas is doing his job. Regular people don't get commended for going to work with pinkeye, and while I sympathize with him, neither should he.
