With Ed Hochuli retiring, is MLB umpire Jim Wolf the most jacked official in sports?

(Bob Levey)

Ed Hochuli, perhaps the most jacked NFL referee/sports official in history, has announced his retirement. His son, who might also be jacked, will replace him. Fear not: You can ease your Hochuli emptiness by watching this audio-less dedication video here.

Please, let us know if Jim Wolf is the indeed, now, the strongest official in sports.
