NFL referee agreement reaction: Ed Hochuli does push-ups, is ready for America

America is ready to see Ed Hochuli back, but Ed Hochuli is probably more ready to see America again. In fact, all day Wednesday it appears as if Hochuli was getting ready for his close-up.

Hochuli has been training officials during the lockout in preparation for a resolution. This has probably allowed for a quick turnaround between today's agreement and the ability for refs to get moving toward officiating NFL games as quickly as Thursday. Hochuli says NFL officials have been watching hours and hours of video while taking 18 extensive rules tests to get themselves ready for an immediate return to action on the pro football field. Whether there will be rust or not remains to be seen, but what is certain is that the NFL referees are well-prepared to handle these circumstances thanks to Hochuli.

No doubt that NFL fans everywhere will be happy to see real referees on the field this week after the NFL and the NFLRA resolved their issues today. However, no one might be more jacked to return (no pun intended) than Football Hercules himself.
