Well the day has finally come, Ed "Biceps" Hochuli has retired from refereeing in the NFL, after 28 seasons, including 26 seasons as crew chief.
Ed Hochuli has always been a very popular referee in the NFL, because of his unnecessarily tight shirts, that gave everyone tickets to the gun-show each Sunday. That, paired with his always lengthy and sometimes insightful explanations for every penalty called.
Hochuli has managed to stay likable for most of his career, being one of the few refs that I have ever had anything against for their utter lack of competence.
In his 28 years with the NFL, he worked two Super Bowls, and will now be able to watch as his son Shawn takes over the reigns, as he was promoted to a referee today as well.
Something tells me Big Bicep Ed will be just fine, because as most of you know, he is a very successful attorney, and is sitting on a net worth of at least $5mil. Good luck to ya Ed, and don't forget to mix a leg day in every once and a while.
