Ed Hochuli is to refereeing as Bob Ross is to painting picturesque landscapes. The 66-year-old is as ingrained of the fabric of the game as the goal posts or endzone pylons. Hochuli, who is a lawyer in the offseason, has been donning a referee uniform in the NFL for nearly three decades. His bulky biceps and shmedium sized shirt has made him a household name, and the only sports ref I can name other than Tim Donaghy (for reasons more infamous). Hell, Hoch even appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated back in 2012.
But, if there’s one gripe NFL fans have with the ripped ref, it’s that he loves the limelight. Needs it like Marshawn needs Skittles.
This video of Hochuli over-explaining calls to get a little more time in the limelight is way more entertaining than it should be.
