Twitter reacts to Ed Hochuli and his legendary biceps retiring

Social media is saluting NFL referee Ed Hochuli (and his muscles) on an unforgettable 28-year career.

The league announced on Tuesday that Hochuli, the NFL’s longest-tenured official, is retiring along with 22-year veteran Jeff Triplette. Hochuli will be replaced by his son Shawn, a former back judge, and Triplette will be replaced by former side judge Alex Kemp.

Hochuli’s retirement in particular resonated on Twitter, as he became a fan favorite over the years with his famously buff figure and his long explanations. Here were some of the best reactions and tributes that came Hochules’ way.

Indeed, the 67-year-old Hochuli provided us with some truly classic moments in his reffing career, and the recognition is all very well-deserved (but don’t keep it up too long because Ed has to be up at 5 AM tomorrow to hit the gym).
