In case you managed to avoid football talk around the water cooler on Monday, here’s what you missed — the weather at the 49ers/Packers game was miserable. -11 degrees with windchill miserable, to be exact. So it’s understandable that Fox NFL Sunday host Curt Menefee was slightly off his game, but his awkwardly sexual tongue question to hottie broadcaster Erin Andrews was still hard to watch. Check it out below!
Curt Menefee, 48, is usually an uncontroversial figure in the football world. But the Fox NFL Sunday host became the object of some ridicule on Jan. 5 when he made an awkward gaffe toward 35-year-old reporter Erin Andrews.
Curt Menefee Asks Weird Tongue Question
Okay, so it was extremely cold during the 49ers/Packers game at Lambeau Field on Jan. 5, and Curt was probably prompted by Fox to make some sort of joke about the frigid atmosphere. But he made a sharp turn in the wrong direction when he decided to go with a Christmas Story reference, especially since the joke was directed at the frequently sexualized reporter Erin Andrews. Curt definitely didn’t mean to offend Erin when he asked her if she had been licking the goal posts and if her tongue was still working, but we also can’t blame Erin for looking startled at the sheer weirdness of it all. Check out Erin’s priceless reaction — and the awkward question that prompted it — here!
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Should fans be upset about Curt’s joke, or was it all in good fun?
