Stop for a second and think of all the out-of-shape, overweight, pork bellied 60-year-olds you know. Then segue to these two photos of NFL referee Ed Hochuli this week being stalked at his gym by San Diego radio reporter Marty Caswell. She tweeted early in the week, “Stalking, er being aggressive, does pay off. Ed Hochuli, interview at the gym, happens tomorrow….” Um, like, of course we want to see Ed ripping a couple sets. Who’s up for some tricep work?
It’s unclear where these photos were taken. Ed’s attorney duties keep him in Phoenix. And we’re not really here to worry about the minor details. Just wanting a peek at how the pipes are progressing during the off-season and BC is absolutely starved for NFL news.
“I get a kick out of the notoriety, because I’m just a referee. I’m not the players. The players are the game. They’re what this is all about. I get notoriety because I explain things, and I get notoriety because I have a decent physique, which is funny because I’m a shrimp, a peewee compared to those players. Neither one of those things has anything to do with whether I’m a good referee.”
Very true, but it’s impossible for pudgy NFL viewers to watch a 4:00 p.m. EST Giants-Cowboys game without pausing when Hochuli motions a first down by windmilling one of those sequoias.
Just know that while you are preparing for 2011-12 by reading up on fantasy football message boards, Hochs is in the gym grunting out sets. Might be time to reorganize your priorities.
