Somehow between the cold weather and football pandemonium, Erin Andrews' tongue became the highlight of Fox's NFL coverage Sunday night.

Curt Menefee joked with the blond beauty about having A Christmas Story moment as she braved the cold during the San Francisco 49ers Wild Card game against the Green Bay Packers.

Andrews was on the field wearing a heavy winter coat, scarf and thick gloves in an effort to keep herself as warm as possible during her reporting.

So when Menefee referenced the popular holiday flick from the warmth of the Fox studio, Andrews had the perfect response.

"Randall Cobb is back and so too to this show is our own Erin Andrews who, using your 'Christmas Story' reference, hopefully hasn't been licking the goal post in between. Your tongue working right now?" Menefee asked while laughing.

"So far so good," Andrews replied. "But I anticipate sounding like Flick from A Christmas Story."

She also let fans in on a few secret tips she tried to keep herself toasty.

Andrews revealed that she was wearing heated socks during the Wild Card game and that she "never felt cold quite like that."

But her efforts to warm up didn't end there…

It turns out that she was so close to the players' heater on the field that she actually managed to burn through her gloves!

"There was a small fire for me on the 49'ers sideline…burned my glove standing too close to the player's heater," she said on Twitter.

Yikes! Well glad she's safe (and warm) now!
