The NBC reporter returned after taking six days off and began the broadcast by jokingly saying he was filling in for Matt and Meredith, however, he also admitted that

This week marked the end of Bob’s 157 appearances streak as host of the Peacock’s primetime coverage of the Games! Costas has been hosting the Olympics for the network since 1988!

Meredith called into the Today show this morning to express her excitement to have this groundbreaking opportunity. She told her former colleagues:

Um…is this the Olympics or an ugly sweater party?!

Because srsly, America. What the hellz are you wearing?!?

Those would be the official opening ceremony uniforms for the US team, designed by Ralph Lauren!

So much star print!

The outfits were introduced live on the Today show this morning. Even Matt Lauer, Carson Daly and Savannah Guthrie got to try them on!

Hmm. Well they may not be pretty but they’re damn patriotic! That’s for sure!

‘Murica!!!

But the fashion forward (or backwards?) threads get even wilder across the pond!

Look at the Norway curling team’s getup! Those patterned pants are sort of blowing our minds! (below)

Or how about those furry fro caps that the Czech ski jumping team will be rocking in Sochi?! (below)

And you’ll see Team Germany wearing their rainbow-bright parkas when they descend upon Russia! (below)

The colorful coats sparked immediate speculation that the Germans were making a silent protest against Russian anti-gay laws, although the national sports confederation insists the uniforms hold no political message at all.

Ch-ch-check out all the Olympic uniform pics below!
