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

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.

But, most importantly, with Hochuli out -- we'd like to offer up a new "Most Jacked Official in Sports" nominee: MLB umpire Jim Wolf. Look at him stopping an entire baseball game with a simple lift of his biceps:


Watch him motion Hall of Famer Paul Molitor back to the dugout with a stern glance:

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