It's Always Sunny in Detroit:
NFL players annually gather in Hawaii for a vacation and play not to get hurt in the reason that brought them there – the Pro Bowl. The Pro Bowl isn’t really true football as there is no blitzing, no blocking kicks, no defense and very little interest.
Even Ed Hochuli got into the light-heartedness of the event with a joke on the first penalty of the game – a pass interference call against the Broncos’ Champ Bailey.
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
No wonder Ed Hochuli is the NFL Players favorite ref. Hochuli was chosen to referee the Pro Bowl, tight shirt and all, and had the best line of the night after fans were booing a pass interference call on Champ Bailey. The NFL will be okay with him saying this during the Pro Bowl, but I bet Roger Goodell would fine him if he said something like this during a regular season game.
After a pass interference call on Champ Bailey the fans started giving the referees a hard time with some boos. Ed Hochuli being the beast that he is, decided to let everyone know that "There are Penalties in the Pro Bowl." Luckily for all of the fans in attendance he didn't give them all the torture rack one by one. Check out the video below.
While trying to track down a memorable highlight from this year's Pro Bowl, I figured that referee Ed Hochuli would provide us with one and boy...did he ever.
After a flag was thrown on a pass interference by Denver Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey, Ed decided to remind the crowd that there are penalties even in a Pro Bowl:
